Schizophrenia: An Incurable yet Manageable Illness

Have you been having some strange and bizarre thoughts recently? Do you remain awake at night thinking that your boss is planning to murder you? And do you hear voices that tell you to go and jump off a cliff? If your answers to these three questions were “yes” than you need to see a proficient psychiatrist immediately.

You might just have a mental illness that goes by the lengthy name of schizophrenia. Once considered to be a case of split personality, nowadays the information on schizophrenia says otherwise. Schizophrenia is a severe mental illness in the same category as bipolar disorder. Over two million Americans have it at any one time.

The symptoms by means of which it can be detected are listed below:

  • Hallucinations: The patient hears, sees or smells things that are just not there to begin with.   

  • Delusions: False beliefs are harbored by the afflicted person and they do not corroborate with the actual reality. 

  • Impaired Cognition: The patient may display what is called “unconnected thoughts” and his speech may be a sort of “word salad”.

  • Odd Behavior: He or she may act in a weird or strange manner that is not consistent with normal behavior. 

  • Non-Functionality in Real Life: A schizophrenic cannot function very well in the normal day-to day life that everybody else is so familiar with. He or she simply lacks the social, behavioral and emotional tools to cope with the complexities of reality. Nor can he or she be a jobholder or make friends. 

If you have been diagnosed with the dreaded mental illness, remember…all is not lost. There are methods of coping with and managing this disease. The following medications may have to be taken on a regular basis: 

If you take haloperidol, you will have to take kemadrin with it in order to offset the parkinsonian symptoms it causes. And some of the side effects of these anti-psychotics are listed below:

  • Weight Gain
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness

Finally, although schizophrenia never goes away, it can be moderated by several lifestyle changes. The minimizing of stressful and anxiety-provoking conditions is of paramount importance. A supportive family environment of love, warmth and caring is all that is needed. The schizophrenic is after all much larger than his or her illness.
