I too have been diagnosed with schizophrenia. I told my profs about it and how it made school a bit difficult. Some of them even told me I should change my major. Jokes on them. I graduated weekend before last. :)
Hello Rachel! Thank you very much for your channel. Could you please answer my question: neuroleptics that I take all have one side effect: I start to gain weight. Many people that I know have obesity, because they have been taking neuroleptics for a long time. You are so slim! What medcine do you take?
yeah, same thing with bipolar I disorder. three degrees later. *rolls eyes* thank you for putting this out there. maybe, some people will change their minds about their ideas, about what it means to have a mental illness.
my grandma's schizophrenic, and she's also a full-time medical lab scientist (essentially she runs diagnostics on blood samples) at a hospital. schizophrenia doesn't mean she can't be successful and function, it just means that she has to approach life differently than non schizophrenic people.
:D Short & sweet video . ^_^
I once had a schizophrenic fella working under me as a Stock - clerk ....
I treated him as i did everyone else, i'll have you know <3
Meaning , i coached him, trained him , & lit a fire under his ass when he was working too slow....
Which, in His case.... happened to be often -_-
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
