Dealing with Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a mental disorder in which the normal functioning of the brain is affected. Our brain is what helps us think, helps us feel and helps us understand the world around us. It helps us to be logical and to deal rationally with situations and people around us. Schizophrenia affects this very ability of the brain to think, feel and understand and as a result, the person affected starts to live in a reality very different from that of others.
People suffering from schizophrenia are not able to think rationally or coherently; they start becoming incapable of interacting with others normally and cannot carry out even simple responsibilities. Simple, every day tasks like bathing or shaving become difficult to do and as a result are neglected. Very soon, this disorder starts to affect the person’s family life, social life and work life. Family members also become very distressed when they see the changes in their loved one and at times can become very overwhelmed at the thought of having to care and deal with a person suffering from schizophrenia.

However, there are still plenty of ways in which you can help a family member deal with and slowly defeat the disorder. The idea is to have more and more positive thoughts keeping out all the negative thoughts.
