Psychosis is referred to the unsound condition of the human mind and at this point of time people do not realize what is happening in reality. The person who is suffering from psychosis is known as a psychotic and hence the name psychotic disorder. This type of disorder is seen in people suddenly and is known to disappear in a similar manner.
The most often found symptoms of psychotic disorder are:
The state of hallucinating where the person can see a person in a place where the latter does not exist. This also causes fear in the patient suffering from this disorder. This is most prominent in people who have been threatened. The hallucinations have no connections to reality and they may experience this in any place and time, even in sleep. Apart from seeing visions, the patient can also hear sounds.
Delusions where the person is not able to come out of a belief which is instilled in his mind. In other words, the patient has illusions based on false or incomplete information that he has received. These beliefs are very tough to be broken even though there is substantial proof against the belief.
Grossly disorganization where the patient likes to isolate himself and withdraws from the social activities in his surroundings. This symptom is also known as catatonic behavior and the intensity of this can vary from mild to extreme. Another aspect of this symptom is that the person sits without any movement for a very long time.
Disorganized speech is a state where the patient is not able to speak fluently. His sentences are broken and there is constant stammering. In many cases, the speech of the patient cannot be understood by us.
The causes of psychotic disorder are many. The few important causes are discussed below.
Brain damage- Many times people meet with an accident after which their brain does not function normally. The tragic event might have such an impact that the person has been led to this disorder.

Commonly question about Psychotic Disorders - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment
What problems might patients cause if attached to the Collins software projects ?Patients with personality disorders share certain characteristics:
1. Except those suffering from the Schizoid or the Avoidant Personality Disorders, they are insistent and demand preferential and privileged treatment. They complain about numerous symptoms, though they frequently second guess the diagnosis and disobey the physician, his treatment recommendations and instructions.
2. They feel unique, are affected with grandiosity and a diminished capacity for empathy. Consequently, they regard the physician as inferior to them, alienate him and bore him with their self-preoccupation.
3. They are manipulative and exploitative, trust no one and find it difficult to love or share. They are socially maladaptive and emotionally labile.
4. Disturbed cognitive and, mainly, emotional development peaks in adolescence.
5. Personality disorders are stable and all-pervasive not episodic or transient. They affect all the dimensions of the patient s life: his career, his interpersonal relationships, his social functioning.
6. Though the patient is sometimes depressed and suffers from mood and anxiety disorders - defenses - splitting, projection, projective identification, denial, intellectualization - are so strong, that the patient is unaware of the reasons for his distress. The character problems, behavioral deficits and emotional deficiencies and instability encountered by the patient with personality disorder are, mostly, ego-syntonic. This means that the patient does not, on the whole, find his personality traits or behavior objectionable, unacceptable, disagreeable, or alien to his self.
7. The patient is prone to suffer from other psychiatric disturbances, both personality disorders and Axis I disorders ("co-morbidity"). Substance abuse and reckless behaviors are also common ("dual diagnosis").
8. Defenses are alloplastic: patients tend to blame the external world for their misfortune and failures. In stressful situations, they try to preempt a (real or imaginary) threat, change the rules of the game, introduce new variables, or otherwise influence the external world to conform to their needs.
9. The personality-disordered are not psychotic. They have no hallucinations, delusions or thought disorders (except those who suffer from a Borderline Personality Disorder and who experience brief psychotic "microepisodes", mostly during treatment). They are also fully oriented, with clear senses (sensorium), good memory and general fund of knowledge.
That is a very complex question and I don t think that you can just put a type person down to all the problems associated with collins, no doubt there were certain unstable and eccentric personalities involved, but this is not uncommon in something with such a wide ranging scope of variance :)
Is this a good report for an 8th grade science reasearch project??Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia has been around since 500 B.C. and scientists still have not found the cause. There are so many symptoms and they add on over the years. This mental illness affects 2 in every 10,000 children and takes up 25% of hospital beds. Only about 30% of all patients fully recover from schizophrenia. In this report I will tell you the symptoms, the causes the types, categories, and the causes.
I am going to begin with the symptoms. A few major symptoms include delusions, hallucinations, and hearing strange voices in their head. Delusions make these schizo. patients believe people are plotting to kill them. Now hallucinations go along with delusions but the hearing voices feeds a schizos. fear. A couple not so major symptoms are scattered, disorganized thoughts and making others confused.
In the beginning I stated that scientists had not found a real cause. Scientists do have an idea for the cause of this mental illness. One cause I heard a lot of when I did my research was there is no balance in the brain. The other I heard about was genetic, but I mostly read there was no real cause.
There are two types of schizophrenia, type 1 and type 2. Type 1 schizophrenia is positive schizophrenia and has rapid symptoms. People with type I schizophrenia tend to respond to drugs like Thorazine but people with this type have more delusions and hallucinations than anything else. Type 2 schizophrenia is negative schizophrenia. This type has slowing of mental and physical reactions. Now instead of delusions and hallucinations people with type II have more withdrawal from others.
In addition to types there are categories. In schizophrenia there are five categories. The first category is Paranoid schizophrenia. This category or subtitle is the combination of false beliefs (delusions) and hearing voices (auditory hallucinations) Martin, pg.1797-1802. The people with paranoid schizophrenia have nearly normal emotions and cognitive functioning Martin, pg.1797-1802. They also have thoughts of people killing them and sometimes they commit suicide. The second category or subtype is Disorganized schizophrenia. This subtype was also known as Hebephrenic Schizophrenia. These people have marked disorganized speech, thinking, and behavior Martin, pg.1797-1802. They also have inappropriate emotional response Martin, pg.1797-1802. Thirdly there is Catonic Schizophrenia. Now people with this subtype may stay in bizarre postures for a long period of time. They also have mood disorders. Fourthly Undifferentiated Schizophrenia which has positive and negative symptoms Martin, pg.1797-1802. Lastly there is Residual Schizophrenia. These patients do not have strong delusions and hallucinations but have or might have withdrawal from others.
Some of the treatments are very obvious and common. The first treatment is ant psychotic drugs like Thorazine. The last is therapy. Because there is no real cause they dont have a real cure.
In conclusion schizophrenia is a mental illness that has no cause but many definitions. It is also a mental illness, which could ruin a family mentally and physically.
It s not bad. Schizophrenia is a hard topic to cover, because in many ways it is an example of how pschiatric classifications are not always precise.
I doubt that schizophrenic patients take up 25% of all hospital beds. Schizophrenia does have a cause, but it is not a precisely defined condition. Under current definitions, it could be the intersection of multiple conditions. I d avoid calling schizophrenic patients "schizos".
Am I really hypochondriac? ?This is kind of long so beware::
So last year my mom would tell me to stop acting like a hypochondriac. I would tell her when something was wrong with me all the time. Like a tummy ache, head ache and would try to get out of school.
And years before that about 4-7 I would go to the nurse for little things and still try to get out of school and the nurse in 4-6 grade would tell me to go back to class not even trying to see whats wrong with me.
And I m a sophomore now and I m really confused if I am. I have a habit of looking up diseases. Like I look up metal disorders to see if I have any of the symptoms which I do.
And at one point in time I was scared I had hairy tongue even though sometimes I still am. I don t do anything that would cause me to get it.
At the doctors I have asked for a blood test, iron test, had her check my nails to make sure I didn t have a disease that I found in a magazine. I didn t get my blood tested and my iron test came out good.
I have gotten scared I had cancer but my mom said I didn t cause my moles didn t change shapes and what not.
I went through a stage when I had to wash my hands after doing a lot of things so that I wouldn t get an disease.
I even checked the symptoms of a hypochondriac and I guess I wasn t severe. I m kind of worried I am still, like it is giving me the wrong answers cause I m making myself pick the answers to get a certain outcome.
Then I took a personality test "Do I need therapy" and those were my answers. You can skim if you want to.
----Although your scores were generally quite good, you scored well outside the normal range in at least one category. This suggests that you should probably consult with a mental health professional for further testing or treatment. There is most certainly a professional out there who can help improve the symptoms you are experiencing.
The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:
* Your responses strongly indicated that you suffer from Hypochondriasis.
The test also detected symptoms of one or more disorders that did not meet all the criteria, but that may still merit treatment.
The following are the areas of concern detected by the screening:
* You have experienced some symptoms of a brief psychotic episode, but not enough to qualify as a full-blown episode.
* Although you meet the criteria for the frequency of symptoms, your symptoms do not appear to be severe enough to meet the criteria for Major Depressive Disorder.
* You have experienced symptoms of a manic episode.
* Although you meet the criteria for the frequency of symptoms, your symptoms do not appear to be severe enough to meet the criteria for Bipolar disorder.
* You experience some symptoms of Simple Phobia.
* You appear to have some obsessive thoughts.
* You exhibit some compulsive thoughts or behaviors.
* You display some symptoms of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but you do not appear to meet the full criteria for the disorder.
* You experience some symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
* You experience some symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder.
* You experience some symptoms of Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia.
Now do you think I am a hypochondriac? I can say it isn t taking over my life or anything. But if I do have the symptoms should I get "checked out"?
Fear is a cunning emotion and can make us think all kinds of things....IF we allow it to.
I think a lot of people have gone through what you have outlined here. We are so afraid of contracting some kind of disease that sometimes, just by thinking these kinds of thoughts, we become vulnerable and disease will manifest. OR, we can MAKE ourselves have certain symptoms just by looking for them and magnifying them.
I think once a person allows themselves to just sit back and enjoy the ride, rather than to try to sabotage it and never allowing themselves to have fun, the better off that person will be. And then eventually, that need to self-diagnose goes away, and a person begins to "think well". You can "think away" lots of conditions, just as you can give them the power to control your life.
Do try to take a look at your fears as well and not just those related to diseases and disorders. It s very possible you are afraid of only one thing (or many) that you have been afraid of for a long time. Things like rejection . A person for instance who is afraid of rejection might get sick so they won t get rejected. See how that works?
Do think well, and therefore, be well..........
