Schizophrenia Information & Treatment Introduction
Throughout recorded history, the disease we now know as schizophrenia has been a source of bewilderment. Those suffering from the illness once were thought to be possessed by demons and were feared, tormented, exiled or locked up forever. In spite of advances in the understanding of its causes, course and treatment, schizophrenia continues to confound both health professionals and the public. It is easier for the average person to cope with the idea of cancer than it is to understand the odd behavior, hallucinations or strange ideas of the person with schizophrenia.
As with many mental disorders, the causes are poorly understood. Friends and family commonly are shocked, afraid or angry when they learn of the diagnosis. Expectations become more realistic as schizophrenia is better understood as a brain disease that requires ongoing treatment. Demystification of the illness, along with recent insights from basic neuroscience, gives new hope for finding more effective treatments for an illness that previously carried a grave prognosis.
Schizophrenia is characterized by a broad range of unusual behaviors that cause profound disruption in the lives of the patients suffering from the condition and in the lives of the people around them. Schizophrenia strikes without regard to gender, race, social class or culture.
One of the most important kinds of impairment caused by schizophrenia involves the person's thought processes. The individual can lose much of the ability to rationally evaluate his surroundings and interactions with others. There can be hallucinations and delusions, which reflect distortions in the perception and interpretation of reality. The resulting behaviors may seem bizarre to the casual observer, even though they may be consistent with the schizophrenic's abnormal perceptions and beliefs.
Nearly one-third of those diagnosed with schizophrenia will attempt suicide. About 10 percent of those with the diagnosis will commit suicide within 20 years of the beginning of the disorder. Patients with schizophrenia are not likely to share their suicidal intentions with others, making life-saving interventions more difficult. The risk of depression needs special mention due to the high rate of suicide in these patients. The most significant risk of suicide in schizophrenia is among males under 30 who have some symptoms of depression and a relatively recent hospital discharge. Other risks include imagined voices directing the patient toward self-harm (auditory command hallucinations) and intense false beliefs (delusions).
The relationship of schizophrenia to substance abuse is significant. Due to impairments in insight and judgment, people with schizophrenia may be less able to judge and control the temptations and resulting difficulties associated with drug or alcohol abuse.
In addition, it is not uncommon for people suffering from this disorder to try to "self-medicate" their otherwise debilitating symptoms with mind-altering drugs. The abuse of such substances, most commonly nicotine, alcohol, cocaine and marijuana, impedes treatment and recovery.

Sir. We are suffering from head ache and stress. We can not handle the problems due to stress. When we are in stress we start shouting on others. We can't sleep at night even took tablets. We get fear a lot and we can't able to take right decision on our future. We can't believe anyone. We feel lonely and get hungry also but we can't eat. How to forget our mistakes or bad events done in our life, if we tried to forget. It gives more frustration and simply cried. And we can't able to share those events to others. If we close to a person after some times we can not able to leave but that person don't want to be with me so now how to avoid that person. How to destroy our negative thinking? Please answer our problem we are waiting.
While you took vows of sticking to each other through thick and thin you surely hadn't thought of the extremes of bitterness a marriage could entail. The fundamental flaw is perhaps in treating a marriage as a sanctified institution instead of a genuine relationship requiring patience, care, and understanding. The minute you start taking your partner for granted your marriage moves an inch closer to failure. Respect is a key ingredient in love; try to identify if you are losing respect for your partner. Dejection could be the general response to a continued stretch of quarrels. Take out time to sit down and situate marital problems in order to bridge the gap between two souls.
Power politics: Individual mindset decides the course of your marriage. Many people bask in the idea of equality, but never quite feel free to practice the same. Men or women should be comfortable in letting the other person share responsibilities. Nobody should dictate his or her partner in mutual or personal matters. Suggestion, discussions and disagreements as well can work for the betterment of your marriage. It is wrong to assume power in any relationship.
Never sacrifice your career: Fights and quarrels could result from your negligence towards yourself. You could be so interested in appeasing your partner that you give up on your career. In such a situation your partner might lose respect for you or might find you overbearing.
Procreation: Marital problems could arise from differences in opinion regarding procreation. One of the two individuals might want a child while the other person might not be ready for it as yet. A partner can also not want to procreate ever. If a married couple already has children, they may fight over them too. Many people find it difficult to accept their partner's take on issues related to the child.
Domestic issues: Domestic partnership can affect your marriage greatly. Problems start arising when two people, however close, start sharing the same space. There could be conflicts regarding cleanliness or kitchen work. It is necessary that you act sensible and never burden your partner with all the housework.
Banal sex life: It may happen that boredom overshadows your sex life. The reason behind frequent quarrels can be a lack of sex or infrequent sex. Reach out to your partner to know his or her desires while communicating yours too.
