Schizophrenia

In our discussion of schizophrenia, we review these areas: What is schizophrenia? Are there any early signs that schizophrenia might be starting? Also, what are the later symptoms? Further, descriptions of the “negative symptoms” of schizophrenia (as opposed to the usual positive symptoms we all know about)? Then, in addition, gender questions: do men and women have different symptoms? Central to the discussion, what causes schizophrenia? How long does it last? When can you stop your medicines? There’s a test for schizophrenia. And, the page on treatments for schizophrenia is also a free page

Here’s a link to a poem, both a heartwarming and a heart crushing poem, about dementia: “My Own Blood”.

Bipolar Disorder

This medical condition used to be called manic depression or manic-depressive disorder. The mood state of mania proves one point: yes, you really can feel too good. Bipolar is treatable, with many, many effective medications with good safety records available.

Panic Disorder

This medical condition, while really scary, is not fatal and is readily treatable. Those panic attacks (anxiety attacks) can be brought under control. The combination of medication and therapy/education works best. Treatment? No problem. It’s a well understood medical condition. There are many good treatments, many medications and many highly effective therapies. Over time you learn to conquer the panic attacks rather than the other way around.

Depression

When we talk about depression, we mean real, serious depression, medical depression, clinical depression, major depressive disorder. It’s a whole different beast that the “Sunday afternoon blues”. The good news is that serious depression, even long-standing, treatment-resistant depression, can be treated. We have new tools so that it can be treated more easily and better than in the past. The medications we have for depression do work, but not all depression medications work for all depressed people. Some trial and error is needed but eventually, almost everyone succeeds at getting better.

ADHD

A childhood medical condition, yes, it starts in childhood. But, it doesn’t stop after childhood or adolescence. It lingers on into adult years for most people. The good news is that, if diagnosed and treated correctly, it can provide a person with a great many benefits. ADHD usually responds well to the proper treatment. We describe the several available medications and other valuable therapies.

Epilepsy

Seizure disorders are really common medical conditions. And these days they’re no mystery. Epilepsy is no longer a dark, family secret. Everyone knows about epilepsy. Doctors know how to treat epilepsy. And, it’s usually very treatable. There are many medical treatments that work.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s is another one of those feared dementias. A huge amount of research has been done and is ongoing into Parkinson’s. There are new and better medications, and more on the way. Gracious and conscientious famous people have helped to educate the public and have generously funded much new research.
