Hello! My name is Marisa. A few weeks ago I was assigned a project about Schizophrenia. I was required to create a hypothesis and then try to prove or disprove it via an interview or surveys. So the hypothesis I came to was "Schizophrenia is more reocurrent in those who have encountered traumatic events."
As I began researching, it seemed clear that traumatic events had very little relevance to the development of the disorder.
So, to finalize if traumatic events have any bearing, I wanted to ask those who have or have dealt with the disorder before.
Do you have Schizophrenia or know someone who has it?
Have you or this person ever faced any traumatic events?
If so, what was the event? (If you don't mind sharing.)
Schizophrenia is a social construct NOT a medical condition
I do believe there are unusual sates of consciousnesses that occur in response to trauma and interpersonal stress and that these are "normal" adaptions but for some they appear deviant ie dysfunctional the question for many is how to deal with people who make us feel uneasy , deviants were once locked in asylums and un -classified and now "they" are classified as suffering from what ? Please read Schizophrenia the scientific delusion, Schizophrenia isn't a real entity at all it is a fabrication.
Scenario : I rage at the loss of girlfriend /boyfriend , I then feel sad and eventually hopelessly depressed, I go around in a low mood and start wearing goth like outfits , become fascinated with death morbidity and wearing black etc my parents don't understand the G.P refers me to psychiatrist and from then on "they" want to know from the experts "i" have been left out of the equation the scapegoat of a dysfunctional ( unusual family dynamic) . This is fictional account but does it sound familiar ?
It's a phase , it's part of life , it's actually essential for our spiritual and psychological growth , 's parents wanted him certified , was he mad too?
I have since posting have recovered from schizophrenia, the term itself is an umbrella of different symptoms and I dealt with each one and have an extremely high nutrient diet which a lack of is relevant to mental health issues.
I do agree that it is thrown around to anyone dysfunctional and suffering mentally, but that is what it is. The sad part is it doesn't take well to the conventional medicines approach to managing it. In fact it can be dealt with and overcome with nurture and understanding of the dis-ease from the sufferer and yes it can be the family dynamic that is at fault. I don't believe that people who aren't ignorant think goth or other states of social stance are considered a mental illness.
Your fictional story is not relevant to my profile of development, but I agree is was avoidable and had I been aware of mental health issues I would have taken action at the start even at an early age.
