"i'm love sick"

love sick

electronic records, medicine for adults, tens, and children

pardon, for not writing for a few weeks. I am busy with my husband and work. Now, we are going on a vacation, so I am posting a day early. I was not able to weigh my body today, so I will not post "this past week". I forgot. I always weigh my body early in the morning.

two people told me that I was "schizophrenic" because I was "too skinny".

On to the news:

electronic records exist in the ussa (any record can be found by any doctor, I saw that while there)

medicine for adults is changing (some abilify 5 mg is white and tastes like candy)

medicine for tens is changing (sometimes a play, short story, novel, poem, or song can lead to medicine if it is considered too violent of writing or indicative of something not liked by those who are in power and considered normal)

medicine for children --- there is much, much, much more (now, can be given based on parents', sisters' or brothers' personal info in electronic records) no. no. ussa

these medicines originated in ussa.

sexual trauma can lead to schizophrenia diagnosis

In the article below, an investigation shows "that sexual trauma plays a role in the development of psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia."

There is, further noted, the trend that trauma victims will move from the location of the sexual trauma, causing "disruption of social networks", which can result in even further mental problems.

There was shown to be a connection between a rape and the later "diagnosis of a psychotic disorder" during the ten years following.

See article:

sexual trauma can 'spark' mental illness

The connection discovered in this study is invaluable. Indications are that sexual trauma can lead, not only to a "psychotic disorder", but to a diagnosis of schizophrenia. This has now been shown. But where will it lead?

One professor involved in the study "said that the research has important implications on treatment and developing therapies for those with schizophrenia."

Those with serious mental illnesses, in this study, lost 14.5 years of potential life:

premature mortality in those with serious mental illness

Heart disease was the main cause of death. "Primary health care" is suggested to reduce this premature mortality rate.

  • medication: 5 mg Aripiprazole a.m., 10 mg Aripiprazole before sleep
  • sleep: average 10 hrs
  • exercise: walking
  • diet: made certain to eat breakfast every day, ate four meals a day
  • weight: 155 lbs.
  • mood: ok all mornings upon rising

the incurable

Louise Hay said, "Every time you hear something is 'incurable,' know that they have not yet discovered a cure it and you must go within to find your own solution. Know there is an Intelligence greater."

That is what I am looking for here. A way "within" to find my "own solution." Hopefully, the posts and suggestions here will assist others as I find my way to recovery.

Major "life stressors" can "trigger" schizophrenia, said to be 'incurable' and a disease for life:

Today's post: You're Nuts, Not Traumatized - Life Sentence: Schizophrenia

The above blog post indicates that stressors in the home can lead to the diagnosis of schizophrenia.

"Why I Write" in FWD by Abby Jean

This piece was written for Blog Against Disablism Day (BADD), May, 2010. I think it sums up good reasons for writing, especially in the line: "I write because I want things to change." There are also some interesting asides about people with mental illness. Please check it out:
