Schizophrenia and Dissociative Disorders: Crash Course Psychology #32

Schizophrenia and Dissociative Disorders: Crash Course Psychology #32


It’s perhaps the most stigmatized and misunderstood
psychological disorder of them all, even among psychologists. Maybe because it’s pretty rare,
affecting about 1% of the population, schizophrenia causes more anxiety in the media, in the public, and
even in doctors’ offices than any other mental illness. As a result, its sufferers have often been
shunned, abused, or locked up. And among the many fallacies that surround the disorder
is simply what it means. The word “schizophrenia” literally means “split mind” but contrary
to popular belief, the condition has nothing to do with a split in personality or multiple
personalities. The term refers instead to what’s sometimes
called a “split from reality.” Multiple Personality Disorder, now known as Dissociative Identity
Disorder, is a totally different type of condition, a kind of dissociative disorder. And these
too, are shrouded in misconceptions, partly because they were the subject of, probably,
the greatest psychological hoax of all time. While many of us can relate on some level
to the emotional swings, nervousness, and compulsions that come with mood and anxiety
disorders, it can be a lot harder for those without direct experience to relate to the
symptoms of schizophrenia and dissociation. Unfortunately we tend to fear and avoid what
we don’t understand in each other, whether it’s a friend of family member or just some
stranger on the bus. But thankfully part of the psychologist’s job is to demystify the
things that can happen in our heads, and as is often the case, understanding may be the key
to compassion. Schizophrenia is a chronic condition that
usually surfaces for men in their early to mid-20s, and for women in their late 20s.
For some the disorder comes on gradually, but for others it could arise more suddenly,
perhaps triggered by stress or trauma, although no event can actually cause the disorder. Once thought of as a single discrete condition,
schizophrenia is now included in the DSM-5 as a point on a spectrum of disorders that
vary in how they’re expressed and how long they last, but they share similar symptoms. Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorders are currently
thought of as characterized by disorganized thinking; emotions and behaviors that are
often incongruent with their situations; and disturbed perceptions, including delusions
and hallucinations. They all involve a kind of loss of contact
with reality on some level. The resulting behaviors and mental states associated with
this break from reality are generally called “psychotic symptoms” and they usually impair
the ability to function. When someone’s experiencing psychotic symptoms,
their thinking and speech can become disorganized, rambling and fragmented. This tendency to
pick up one train of thought and suddenly switch to another and then another can make
communication painfully difficult. People exhibiting these symptoms can also
suffer a breakdown in selective attention, losing the ability to focus on one thing while
filtering others out. In extreme cases, speech may become so fragmented
it becomes little more than a string of meaningless words, a condition given a name that sounds
like its own kind of non sequitur, “word salad.” Classic schizophrenia is also often marked
by delusions or false beliefs not based in reality. These delusions can be rooted in
ideas of grandeur like “I’m the queen of England!” or “I won an Olympic gold medal for the luge!”
Or they can become narratives of persecution and paranoia, believing your thoughts and
actions are being controlled by an outside force or that you’re being spied on or followed
or that you’re on the verge of a major catastrophe. And there are some complicated variations
on these delusions, like feeling that you’ve died or don’t exist anymore or that someone is madly in
love with you or that you’re infested with parasites. Delusions of one kind of another strike as
many as four out of five people with schizophrenia. While some delusions can seem fairly logical,
they can also be severe and bizarre and frightening. Unfortunately maybe the most memorable examples
of people suffering from severe delusions come from serial killers and yeah, while Son
of Sam did claim that he was taking orders from his neighbor’s dog, that kind of stuff
is in the tiny, tiny, tiny minority. Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys and Syd Barrett
of Pink Floyd both suffered psychotic symptoms. And then of course there’s John Nash, the
Nobel Prize winning American mathematician and subject of the movie “A Beautiful Mind.” Through proper treatment, some people with
schizophrenia have not only learned to live with their illness but also made fantastic
creative contributions to the world. Maybe people with schizophrenia also suffer
from perceptual disturbances, or sensory experiences that come without any apparent sensory stimulation,
like hallucinations. This is when a person sees or hears something that isn’t there, often lacking
the ability to understand what is real and what isn’t. Auditory hallucinations, or hearing voices,
are the most common form, and these voices are often abusive. It’s as if you’re inner
monologue, that conversation that you have with yourself or the random things that float
through your head, were somehow coming from outside of you. It’s as if you couldn’t sort
out whether the voices in your mind were internal and self-generated, or external and other-generated. To me, it sounds terrifying. Other common symptoms include disorganized,
abnormal, or incongruent behavior and emotions. This could mean laughing when recalling a
loved one’s death or crying while others are laughing. Acting like a goofy child one minute, then
becoming unpredictably angry or agitated the next. Movements may become inappropriate and compulsive,
like continually rocking back and forth or remaining motionless for hours. Broadly, most psychotic symptoms fall into
three general categories traditionally used by psychologists: positive, negative, and
disorganized symptoms. Positive symptoms are not what they sound
like. They’re the type that add something to the experience of the patient. Like, for
example, hallucinations or inappropriate laughter or tears or delusional thoughts. Negative symptoms refer to those that subtract
from normal behavior, like a reduced ability to function, neglect of personal hygiene,
lack of emotion, toneless voice, expressionless face, or withdrawal from family and friends. Finally, disorganized symptoms are those jumbles
of thought or speech that could include word salad and other problems with attention and
organization. Symptoms like these are useful in diagnosing
a disorder on the schizophrenia spectrum, but there’s a physiological component too.
Like many of the disorders we’ve talked about, schizophrenia has been associated with a number
of brain abnormalities. Post mortem research on schizophrenia patients
has found that many have extra receptors for dopamine, a neurotransmitter involved in emotion
regulation and the brain’s pleasure and reward centers. Some researchers think that overly responsive
dopamine systems might magnify brain activity in some way, perhaps creating hallucinations
and other so-called positive symptoms as the brain loses its capacity to tell the difference
between internal and external stimuli. For this reason, dopamine blocking drugs are
often used as anti-psychotic medications in treatment. Modern neuroimaging studies also
show that some people with schizophrenia have abnormal brain activity in several different
parts of the brain. One study noted that when patients were hallucinating,
for example, there was unusually high activity in the thalamus, which is involved in filtering
incoming sensory signals. Another study noted that patients with paranoid symptoms showed
over-activity in the fear processing amygdala. So, schizophrenia seems to involve not just
problems with one part of the brain, but abnormalities in several areas and their interconnections. But what might be causing these abnormalities? Earlier I mentioned how a stressful event
might trigger psychotic symptoms for the first time, even though it can’t actually create
the disorder. Psychologists call this the “diathesis-stress model.” This way of thinking involves a combination
of biological and genetic vulnerabilities — diathesis — and environmental stressors
— stress — that both contribute to the onset of schizophrenia. This model helps explain
why some people with genetic vulnerability might not always develop schizophrenia and
why the rates of schizophrenia tend to be higher with some degree of poverty or socioeconomic
stress. And it seems too that there is some kind of
genetic predisposition for the disorder. The one-in-a-hundred odds of developing schizophrenia
jumped to nearly one in ten if you have a parent or sibling with the disorder, with
about 50/50 odds if that sibling is an identical twin, even if those twins were raised apart. One recent landmark seven year study looked
at genetic samples across 35 countries, examining more than 35,000 people with schizophrenia,
and another 110,000 without the disorder. The study identified more than 100 genes that
may increase the risk of schizophrenia. As expected, some of these genes involve dopamine
regulation, but others are related to immune system functioning. Researchers continue to
tease out what is exactly going on here, but many are hopeful that these new findings will
lead to better treatment. Clearly, schizophrenia is a challenging disorder
to live with and one that’s hard for outsiders to understand, but maybe even more rare and
more elusive are the dissociative disorders. These are disorders of consciousness, called
dissociative because they’re marked by an interruption in conscious awareness. Patients
can become separated from the thoughts or feelings that they used to have, which can
result in a sudden loss of memory or even change in identity. Now, we might all experience minor dissociation
at times, like maybe the sense that you’re watching yourself from above, as in a movie,
or like you’re driving home and get so zoned out that suddenly you find yourself in front
of Taco Bell thinking, like, “How did I get here?” Those things would generally fall into the
normal range of dissociation, but most of us don’t develop different personalities. Dissociative disorders come in several different
forms, but the most infamous of the bunch is probably Dissociative Identity Disorder.
This has long been known as Multiple Personality Disorder and, yes, it is a thing. It’s a rare
and flashy disorder in which a person exhibits two or more distinct and alternating identities
and the best known case was that of Shirley Mason, whose story was famously rendered in
the 1973 best seller “Sybil” and later in a popular mini-series. The book was marketed as the true story of
a woman who suffered great childhood trauma and ended up with 16 different personalities,
ranging from Vicky, a selfish French Woman, to handyman Syd, to the religious and critical
Clara. The book became a craze and within a few years
reported cases of multiple personality skyrocketed from scarcely 100 to nearly 40,000. Many believe the book was essentially
responsible for creating a new psychiatric diagnosis. It turns out though, Sybil’s story
was a big fat lie. Yes, Shirley Mason was a real person and one
with a troubled, traumatic past and a number of psychological issues. As a student in New
York in the 1950s she started seeing a therapist named Connie Wilbur and taking some heavy
medications. And somewhere in there, maybe because she was coaxed, or maybe because she
wanted more attention, Shirley started expressing different personalities. Dr. Wilbur built a career and a book deal
out of her star patient, even after Shirley confessed that her split personality was a
ruse. The Sybil case is a powerful reminder that
we really don’t understand dissociative disorders very well or even know if they’re always real.
Indeed, some people question if Dissociative Identity Disorder is an actual disorder at
all. But some studies have shown distinct body
and brain states that seem to appear in different identities, things like one personality being
right handed while the other is left handed, or different personalities having variations in their eye
sight that ophthalmologists could actually detect. In these cases, dissociations of identity
may be in response to stress or anxiety, a sort of extreme coping mechanism. Either way, the debate and the research continue. Today we talked about the major symptoms associated
with the schizophrenia spectrum disorders, including disorganized thinking, inappropriate emotions
and behaviors, and disturbed perceptions. We also discussed brain activity associated
with these disorders and talked about their possible origins including the diathesis stress
model. You also learned about dissociative disorders,
and Dissociative Identity Disorder in particular, and the scandal that was the Sybil case. Thanks for watching, especially to all of

  1. Hey, I just wanted to recommend the youtube channel DissociaDID, it has a lot of information on Dissociative Identity Disorder, and is a really interesting channel made my a system (a body containing several personalities/alters) who have DID

  2. In the case of Shirley with the DID Diagnosis and her Psychiatrist Capitalizing on her situation makes the whole psychology /psychiatry untrustworthy and seems like these doctors really don't know what they're doing except hammering patients with Tranquilizers and sedatives and making hell lots of money out of mentally ill People.

  3. Personalities form to protect the person. Therefore, most with the disorder will keep it hush hush.

  4. People actually try to act like they have these disorders which is so gross, as someone who does it’s just stupid ?

  5. i have schizophrenia in which i'd experience hallucinations and some people are born with it. Live with it their whole lives so their used to it, even if it may be a bothersome. I was given treatment as a child and became very associated with my hallucinations up until two days ago where..They stopped. Which now, I truly feel like i'm going to go crazy. They left me.
    (edit) I am going to get treated again>into some therapies to calm down. 🙁

  6. Do research on l theanine/dopamine and gaba/valerian there has to be a cure for schizoprenia. I've heard legit brain scans show there is actually a division in the brain so bad that the neurotransmitters can't communicate with each other. Gaba and dopamine are the 2 major calming neurotransmitters they are obviously having problems in this area

  7. Shirley Mason had D.I.D. Most people with the disorder deny that they have it at times, both to themselves and others; or one of the alters claims that they are making "it" up because that alter has reasons to not accept the reality. This is because D.I.D's purpose is to keep secrets from oneself in order to survive severe trauma. This speaker has not studied this issue and the video is highly irresponsible. Shirley Mason's artwork shows several distinct styles.

  8. i never used my left side as a child. in the 70s autism and schizophrenia where the same. the y chromosome changes the left side in men, we get serotonin from tryptophan (protein), this makes you not remember if u dreamt something or it is real. it is ur ego and subconcious. dopamine is the addiction to perfection (love) dopamine to noradrenaline and then to adrenaline. your left side controls your adrenaline. one side for love (dopamine female) and one side for war (serotonin male). and before you ask serotonin doesnt make you love.. one side understands the other, man understand woman visa versa… ecstacy (left, serotonin releaser) is about dopamine (right), oxytocin is released on your serotonin side (this makes you cuddle). women are addicted to everything on the left side (sleep, cuddle, etc) serotonin makes you love yourself and no one else and is your ego, wheras dopamine is.. your smile makes me smile, family and whateva you think is perfect, this is what you love. like he said that, i should of said this or il say this next time (dopamine). dopamine makes you crazy and serotonin makes you sane. dopamine makes you understand other people and serotonin is so people can understand you. it is your words, hence it is reality.. my words make me real and your words make me crazy. your left side gets turned into melatonin which makes you sleep amd your right adrenaline, which will keep you up all night thinking about perfection. your left side is your subconcious (left leg) it is 70% of your mind.. it tells the concious what to do. dopamine makes you see perfection wheras serotonin makes you speak perfection.. what you see is in your head and is not real because it is in your head. what you speak is real because it is the world around you (serotonin). your right side comes from your mother (x chromosome) and your left from your father (y chromosome) autism and schizophrenia have alot to do with the x chromosome (dopamine) iv studied this for 20 years sry if i went on abit

  9. Our lecturer told us that when a person has DID, the one who will seek a therepist's help is the secondary personality, which it could be the first alter you delveloped.

  10. I had a family member who thought he was jesus for a while. And that's how we found out he had schizophrenia.

  11. I've been psychotic before. My brain sounded like a high school lunch room. Always voices. I got shocked out of it the first time by almost dieing on a car wreck. My aunt Gene wouldn't turn to talk me while looking out a window onto her back yard once. Because she forgot to put her face on. I thought I was a test subject to be studied, and they weren't allowed to let me see what they looked like.

  12. whoever reads this comment, know that you are not alone.
    If you have it then the probability of other people having this isn't that rare.

    Some might say it's common & that we all get it

    research will continue & new info is endless.

  13. Interesting how many of these symptoms are common with those that suffer from Traumatic Brain Injuries.

  14. Im still confuse I day dreamed a lot Got mood swings and I hear voices in my head. Voices that always humiliating me whenever I made mistakes. And sometimes I forgot things.
    Do I have DID? Do I have alters?

  15. It's dirty, you don't want to be around them, disorders are effects to the average person for dealing with them.

  16. You actually know the symptoms extremely well!!!

    I don't think Skitzoprenia is good at all for the Victims living with this disease because of almost 51% of the videos are insanely crazy about how we are "Always being watched" by some one or some thing!!!

    This is killing us as human because I am finding that getting "Over" these things is what is actually killing most of the victim's self-esteem which "if" it happens for "too long" "it" has the possible "reality" of turning people terroist.

    It's like "Watch". And "keep watching" and man turns woman and woman turns man – A Split Brain!!!

    Thank you to The Author's of this video. And to the Doc that explained it.

    Just about dead on with the amount of time that you made me feel appreciated for living with it – which sometimes it feels like a mohawk on your head.

  17. Will love an analysis on people who ''hear'' people waliking upstairs where suposedly, ther aren't more people living in the house.
    People that see ''changes'' in their objects in the house, as if ''someone'' had moved it.

    Or people that see ''quick beings moving'' from one room to another.

    And millions of histories of ''ghosts'', and angels, demons, etc, etc, etc.

    They fit Schizophrenia a LOT, but…the political correctness say ''you won't talk about religions and it's relationship with mental illnesses, you MUST respect beliefs''.

    And nobody talks about it….

  18. Instant subscribe. I love learning stuff about psychology, and the way you explain it is super easy to follow but not dumbed-down.
    Oh, and I doubt this is the right place to bring it up, but I've been living in a constant state of depersonalization for 2 years, going on 3 years now. Not the type where I see myself from 3rd person, but the type where It's like a dream all the time. It's so weird because I can't pin down why I don't feel real. Not my senses or anything, everything's just weird. Sometimes I literally feel myself phasing in and out of reality like something passes through me. feel free to ama I guess.

  19. one of my grandmas had paranoid schizophrenia, she was dangerous for herself and everyone else several times she could've cause my parents death by opening the gas all over the house with them inside and leaving like nothing happened and other things

  20. I was diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder when I was 18. When I recalled being raped (ages 4-12) my mind released whatever part of me had been there for the abuse. She was a stronger version of myself. When I was very stressed from remembering my past, she would take over, and that was frightening. We merged together, as a concious decision.

  21. My mom had a heart attack and i thought it was her delusion that she had other than imagining things. I asked her if her back was burning and she couldn't speak what exactly was happening to her as she was on a sedative and I assumed she was feeling better and sleeping like she would daily after the medication and she gave me hints that it was really a heart attack but she always wanted me to not spend money on her and she had a massive cardiac arrest right in front of me and she died in my arms while on the way to the hospital.

    I've been in shock ever since and I have tears while I'm writing this. My mom suffered from schizophrenia for 30 years without treatment but when she got fine after her treatment last year ,she just had a year of quality life and died because of my lack of understanding.

    My father used to beat her black and blue , hit her ,grab her hairs, break her bones , slap her, hit her while I was a child and I was helpless and he never treated her. When we grew up ,my elder brother started beating and threatening her , and when I grew I thought she was very doing this purposely, I googled what was going on and it was shocking that she was living with this disorder and all her symptoms matched. I got her a proper treatment last year and she would sometimes talk about someone coming to harm us but she improved 99% on medications but I lost her a month ago.

    I wonder how she lived so many years and raised us by working very hard while our father did nothing.
    It's a terrible disorder and I pray to God that nobody has it ever. Nobody believes you when you actually need help. My mom's face keep flashing to my mind everyday. I simply didn't understand what happened because she had no signs or symptoms of heart attack and she didn't say anything but hint me because she cared a lot for our financial difficulty and didn't want anyone to bear her expenses. I miss my mother , she was a very important part of my life and she is why I grew up who I am despite she suffered all these years without medications.

    Thank you for being sensitive on this topic and please get yourselves or those who suffer from it be loved and cared ,that plays a massive role in grooming them and making them feel accepted.

  22. Well because this guy isn't teaching the truth at least not all of it. So according to this guy a psychic is actually a schizophrenic? Get real

  23. I'm pretty certain my wife is a paranoid schizophrenic. She hears a voice in her head that does not stop. From when she wakes up until she finally passes out its just constany tormenting her. Ive tried every single thing there is to try from all the research ive done. She will not go see any type of dr. She thinks there is nothing wrong to see a dr. She belives the voice she hears is just some type of recording playing from a computer or phone and she hears it thru the sound waves. She also thinks its our best other married couple friends doing it and she just wants them to leave her alone. I wish I knew how to get her the help she needs. Every night is just a nightmare. I barely get any sleep cuz she gets so pissed and so annoyed she starts yelling just leave me alone, stop bullying me. The hospital told me even for her to get admitted involuntary she still has to walk in on her own Then they decide if it needs to be against her will. She already said she'll lie thru her teeth and say there's nothing wrong my husband made me come here. I seen her do it to her mom when I called her cuz I was concerned. Ugh I just dont know anymore. Its starting make me depressed.

  24. "It's Okay, That's Love" and "Kill Me, Heal Me" are two kdramas that cater these two mental disorders.. they're worth your time, I swear.

  25. My uncle was diagnosed with schizophrenia after having drug problems hes apparently had delusions of being jesus and ronald reagans son hes been taking his medicine and functioning pretty normally lately with just paranoia but thats just an example of how bad delusions can get

  26. This is why it's so important to AVOID women who exhibit poor life choices in their selection of men and relationships. . . And such women will go on to have multiple children, thus continuing the trend and this may well be what has caused society to become as problematic as it has

  27. DId is real, I have DID and its quite real and odd and annoying but also nice having people who help me in my head (especially when im having an anxiety attack one of them will tell me a breathing technique)

  28. Something is not right here. The symptoms of schizophrenia are defined in a way so it can be diagnosed to 80 % of people

  29. Things that may be related to my schizophrenia:
    Leaving and quitting a short bout with marijuana and LSD.
    Several long periods without television and radio.
    Being around psychopathic people.
    Being attacked by strangers for no apparent reason.
    Being semi-intelligent or a gifted student and also exposed to high-security type information, people, and situations.
    Stalkers or admirers.
    Skipping my association pruning due to the above.
    Being around neat freaks.
    Being so healthy there is an extra affect like allergic overflow.

  30. I grew up with someone close to me who suffers schizophrenia, and after watching the movie "shutter island" I suddenly gained some perspective and felt horrible for them

  31. i know people with schizo and they are really good people been to mental hospital myself sometimes i feel like im more crazy than them just having ptsd anxiety and depression

  32. Someone in my school is schizophrenic and i haven't gotten to talk to her yet but i can guarantee shes not mean or anything. She really likes sailor moon, and can use portals.

    She's really good at dancing

    Like I'm not trying to be mean or anything but yea

  33. I would love another episode about treatment of schizophrenia and similar disorders, like what methods in addition to meds work? Can voices be made to be nicer, for example?

  34. Is this dude the brother of the other guy on this channel? They look and talk very similar. Same voice inflection and mannerisms.

  35. Just lost my mom last week. She killed herself, and I just today found out that she had schizophrenia. I miss you mom. I wish I knew how to help sooner.

  36. Ever since my 5 month marriage went sour and I got a divorce I became interested in BPD, which my ex had 7/9 traits. With that diagnosis I learned they often dissociate. At the time I couldn’t pinpoint his behaviors and his bizarre ways of thinking. With education on psychology it’s helped me label behaviors better like gas lighting and projecting.
    My ex would have these moments where he’d quickly deny reality and argue about something he said or did. I thought he was blacking out. But now I see his moments of dissociating from reality.
    His latest dissociation ( we share a 2 year old so he’s still in my life) was when he called me up in hysterics and gave me his ex girlfriend’s phone number and told me if I talked her into having an abortion he’d pay off my mortgage. I never tried to tell her what to do with her baby, but she’s going to keep it. I’m sure he regrets giving me her phone number because we’ve become friends and now my daughter will get to know her sibling. But in the throes of his emotional turmoil he does and says bizarre things. It is like he blacks out.

    He had a childhood that was full of abuse, neglect, and abandonment. He fears abandonment yet he’s destroyed all his relationships. He’s created 4 children with 4 different women and essentially abandoned them all.

    I believe DID is a result from chronic trauma and it’s a coping mechanism for them to deal with their hyper excitable emotions. I can see how it is very difficult for a therapist to diagnose because it’s something seen behind closed doors.

  37. I can't believe a psychologist would use the jump cut tactic for you tube views and ad money. Obviously not a principled one but then he is a merkin.

  38. I have the following disorders: ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, BPD1 w serve depression episodes, Bulimia and Schizophrenia….honestly before meds I had no idea I was sick. I would get up at work and walk around in circles till the voices stopped. Or have to leave meetings every 10-20 minutes to go outside and sit until the noise in my head stopped. Or I would have to induce vomit to feel even or bang my head and cry till the noise stopped.

    Yeah I’m thankful for meds. So I live a somewhat normal life

  39. I was just recently diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and this video made me feel better about my diagnosis. Thank you

  40. I have depersonalisation-derealization disorder (though I've been 'normal' for a few years now), for me it's like having sunglasses on or viewing the world from behind a screen, my consciousness feels 'further back' in my head, making the real world feel distant and even fake, like a lucid dream. I've also experienced loss of the feeling of owning my body, it feels like it's not a part of me occasionally, my brain recognises it as separate. Also both loss of of almost all emotion and nihilism as well as extreme terror and mild paranoia. Episodes are resolved by ignoring symptoms for me. The more I acknowledge them the more they manifest. Benzodiazepines and especially the z-drug zopivlone helped me mask the symptoms (especially anxiety) while I recovered, though I'm still reliant on these meds today.

  41. Therm schizophrenia realy describe split of mind among schizophrenic brain. There are Disconnection between psychic function. Thinking, emotions, behavior, all of this function disconnect to each other.

  42. Doppio… Oh Doppio… My sweet Doppio…
    Did you forget that i gave you a portion of my Emperor King Crimbson's power?
    Now is the time to use it!

  43. Doppio… Oh Doppio… My sweet Doppio…
    Did you forget that i gave you a portion of my Emperor King Crimbson's power?
    Now is the time to use it!

  44. Doppio… Oh Doppio… My sweet Doppio…
    Did you forget that i gave you a portion of my Emperor King Crimbson's power?
    Now is the time to use it!

  45. I was diagnosed with both of these, I also have Complex PTSD. I go to counseling but what else would help me?

  46. I also think its important to mentioning the differences in a dissociativ disorder and dissociativ identity disorders (did).. they are completely different.. We all is dissociative in some situations..

  47. couldn't split mind possibly refer to positive/negative symptoms, or maybe the change in personality when they get psychotic and then followed by a lack of personality after the psychosis

  48. I had a coworker who eventually told me he had 'simple' Schizophrenia. For the fisrt few months I worked with him he seemed quite normal.

    Later when he got a girlfriend he started to behave more strangely. They eventually married but it didn't work. (The girlfriend also had mental issues.)

    Sometime later he was arrested at a shopping mall for pretending to throw anthrax spores. Many of the local papers demanded the book be thrown at him. None of them mentioned he had a mental problem. Whether he was on or of medication I do not know.

  49. Thanks for making this video! As a mental health nurse, I’m glad to see an accurate, evidence-based, and stigma-free educational video like this. You videos always present the information in such an easily digestible way. Keep them coming! More in the mental health field please!

  50. i’m literally only watching this because i’m writing a short story about a girl with schizophrenia and i don’t wanna get attacked on wattpad lmao

  51. Split the mind of others by demanding 2 impossible demands to be done like forcing to forgive sadistic brutality, which in return will get repeated and being diagnosed as the sickness of those, who get harrassed by the really mentally ill, cruel, brutal and sadistic.
    For exemple : to be a psychiatrist is already the will to be a torturer of animals and humanbeings, a rapist, a lier, a criminel, scicophrenic, evil and perverted and with the will to help an injustice to be forced onto all which is normal with lust to be evil, a torturer and driller and nothing but a criminel in terror to anything normal or good, which never can develop in hands of psychiatrists and which is nothing but greed to a future of science, which will force this planet to be rescued from "desasters" and from all which could be kindness and normality and will be used to war and violence and terrorism and sadism and to a future in hope to a good one, which won't be destroyed by this primitivs as are psychiatrists, this real threat to future generations. and the City of the kind and good and normal persons and the City of the kind and good and normal persons and the City of the kind and good and normal persons.
    (autofilled)

  52. There is time to lie and there is time to die, there is time to love, there is time to hope, there is time to shout against the brutals and the sadists also.
    There is no love and no life and no peace possible in war.

  53. it's kinda sad that sullivan's name is not associated with schizophrenia. his patients actually got better under his care and that was revolutionary at that time because schizophrenia patients were regarded as subhumans and kinda gave up on them.
