Why Schizophrenic?



A lot of people ask me. why schizophrenic is the title of my blog? well its very challenging question..:) As we all know that Schizophrenia is a mental disorder, and some people wondering that maybe I have this kind of disorder. All I can say is that I am mentally healthy.. and I just like the word Schizophrenia..hehehe.. It's a very weird and unique word for me.. I encountered a lot of patients who have this disorder and most of them are just because of genetics and depression. I want to share with you just a little description of Schizophrenia hope you will find this helpful..:)

Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that affects the way a person acts, thinks, and sees the world. People with schizophrenia have an altered perception of reality, often a significant loss of contact with reality. They may see or hear things that don’t exist, speak in strange or confusing ways, believe that others are trying to harm them, or feel like they’re being constantly watched. With such a blurred line between the real and the imaginary, schizophrenia makes it difficult—even frightening—to negotiate the activities of daily life. In response, people with schizophrenia may withdraw from the outside world or act out in confusion and fear.



Most cases of schizophrenia appear in the late teens or early adulthood. For men, the average age of onset is 25. For women, typical onset is around the age of 30. However, schizophrenia can appear for the first time in middle age or even later. In rare cases, schizophrenia can even affect young children and adolescents, although the symptoms are slightly different. In general, the earlier schizophrenia develops, the more severe it is. Schizophrenia also tends to be more severe in men than in women.

Although schizophrenia is a chronic disorder, there is help available. With support, medication, and therapy, many people with schizophrenia are able to function independently and live satisfying lives. However, the outlook is best when schizophrenia is diagnosed and treated right away. If you spot the signs and symptoms of schizophrenia and seek help without delay, you or your loved one can take advantage of the many treatments available and improve the chances of recovery.

People with schizophrenia have an altered perception of reality, often a significant loss of contact with reality." actually it is a common thought disorder characterized by thought and perceptual disturbances and poor physical function. there's no sexual preference. Age of onset is from late adolescent to early adulthood.
