Mental illness the Silent Killer !!!
Bear, in mind I’m not addressing anyone’s personal situation, but my views and opinion as a freelance writer, blogger you should rely on this blog for information purposes only. I’m expressing a nonprofessional viewpoint.Please do consult with your psychologist or health-care provider, before acting on any recommendation contained herein.
Mental illness, as taboo as this may be, as a subject. Mental illness has become and remains a silent killer, destroyer of men, women; Now our teenagers, what? Really!!! What about our first Responders and our brave men and women in the military today we can include sports and recreational activities that have to contribute to about 21 percent of all traumatic brain injuries among children and adolescents with head injuries ( Concussion ) an act of a violent impact or collision that neuro-pathologist now have discovered can lead to suicide if not observed and treated in time. many of our best Professional athletes have died over many years for not knowing more about the damages associated to head injuries in sports.
Let’s not forget our brave men and women in the military which, are witness to the tragic and horrible scene, living and struggling with the nightmares from the events every moment of their lives, many succumb to the addiction of alcohol and drugs also causing them consider suicide? Need help did you know you are not alone, you can find the help you need at a crisis counseling centre near you, if not call your 911 for help.
Symptoms of Concussion:
- A persistent or a worsening headache.
- Vomiting, memory loss or confusion.
- Mood changes, such as irritability.
- Loss of consciousness, even if only briefly.
- Any period of amnesia, or loss of memory for the event.
- Feeling dazed or confused.
Please, let us not also forget our dearly loved seniors. Sorry, to say, Yes, our seniors regrettably with failing health are more and more considering this option of (suicide.) or (euthanasia.) which means “an easy or happy death”.Especially someone suffering from an incurable illness needlessly.
Year, 2015\02\06 I’ve learned that. The Supreme Court of Canada passes the law (euthanasia) to be allowing Doctors to perform (euthanasia) to patients suffering from an incurable disease a request from their patient to end their suffering with dignity.
When someone is considered to have a mental disorder. What does that mean, can we say and understand that this disease is in my opinion maybe a man-made health problem can it inherit from our parent’s genes during our development process? That`s the question? that I ask myself and this is also my suspicion.
Note: History of mental illness goes way back to ancient Greece, Rome, India, even Egyptian and Mesopotamian times. Hippocratic, a Greek physician, responsible for the Hippocratic oath. Was credited or criticized for his theory, that the individual’s environment played an important role in a person`s mental health and behavior.
Antidepressant Medication, in my opinion, is like a curse for life:
The billion-dollar pharmaceutical industry on antidepressant medication that Doctors rely on for mental health issues will at times prescribe the wrong type of antidepressant. Some do get it right the first time.Or they will say, let`s try this, this may help attitude “I’ve heard this many times before “and the overuse of antidepressant is physical, mentally unhealthy in the long term.It`s a life sentence.
That`s why I, call it a curse of the living suffering from mental illness medication, Causing all kinds of crippling side-effects. You often hear about well-known Celebrities on National News that overdose of the medication. Because of men and women suffering in silence in my opinion!
I will differently write an article on this tragic subject (suicide) having myself to consider it as an adolescent back then and survived my traumatic moment of desperation. By overdose with medication.
Doctors, whatever their specialty do consult each other and their encyclopedia on pharmacology to treat the situation with urgency. Yes, I, say that Doctors, do make mistakes, unfortunately, and at what cost. May I ask?
Statistics Canada and the U.S. estimates that hundreds maybe thousands, not all reported including children under age 10 with this disability and suicides of persons of unknown age 3,951 die every year.Because of some form of mental illness.
Here are a few Signs of an early indication of mental disorder to be aware of:
Victims of mental illness disorder may display, Un recognizes signs of depression such as having impulsive behavior and showing signs of incoherent thoughts that make no logical sense. Severe Malnutrition eating disorders. Mood swings. Poor hygiene. Procrastination a mild sign of depression, Substance abuse, alcohol abuse you name it any kind of abuse is dangerous! and should be investigated at it’s earliest stages.
Where they hanging out late at night and with what groups should be considered as an early sign that something is not right and should be investigated also living on the streets and maybe being homeless could be the cause to developing some form of mental disorder having the wrong kinds of friends that have bad habits that try to influences you to be like them.
I believe that it is both, Man-made, also inherited. First, the fetus in the early stages of its development will be surely affected if the Mother is under great unnecessary stress during pregnancy. From mild to moderate to critical in nature, depending on, and this is an important factor making sure that a person surroundings and mental attitude is healthy.
What is having a healthy attitude mean you may ask, well it starts with having the right mindset and surroundings having good communication skills with your peers to being with and that take pride in their physical appearance and behavior. Here’s a healthy Quote: by Bob Marley ” Don’t Worry be Happy!:))” I observed having this type of respect and attitude is having a healthy outlook in the right direction.
Are you having anxiety issues during pregnancy don’t worry:
No pregnancy is ever simple and the same. Women around the world can attest to that. To identify the signs can be difficult with newborns on the way and the young of all ages. Knowing the signs associated with the mental disorder are now known through education more so today has able socialite to the forefront to overcome this stigma of not talking about mental illness at it’s earliest stages during pregnancy and after.
I say, make an important effort to talk about your anxiety feelings to someone that things are not right at this time in your life. There is no shame in seeking help it may save your life and newborn.
There are studies today and research growing worldwide everyday in the field of Genetics\Embryology\ Endocrinology\ and these scientific studies are still debated on how and when are mental illness disorder recognized at it’s earliest stages with no known physiological results to be concluded without enough scientific data being study at this time to say if there is a time period and at what stage should we recognize this defect in our D.N.A
What is very promising today is the advancement in the field of psychopathology. Where neuroscience technology has now determent that any head trauma injuries in a sport will have an effect on individuals without treatment that shows early signs of depression and suicidal thoughts tendencies.
Today we have the technology such as 3 d imaging of the brain that helps Doctors and the patient to visualize brain signal and patterns that are at its weakest. After many weeks of treatment with psychologists and neurologists, they are able to feel with confidence in cope with their disability.(Wish this technology was around sixty years ago.)
The software electroencephalogram consistently measures and monitors perceptual impairment on many mental disorders.Such as in areas of neurodevelopment is an issue, which, I have, like dyslexia. Autism is more and more prevalent our children are showing signs of this disability early today, Parents, now have the tools through education to identify Autism early and get the help needed to cope with this disease. I just mention a few, and there are much more, success stories with using this technique that is now showing amazing results.. (Read more) on this subject electroencephalogram.
Another scientific breakthrough discovery is using magnetic stimulation as a tool. To a specific part of the brain, improving neurological activity to relieve the hurt of mental disorders such as having or showing signs of A.D.H.D attention deficit hyperactive disorder that can lead to depression.
I believe, that this technique should be made accessible through the Medicare system and paid by our governments and not have to go through the private clinics to have this treatment, that charges enormous amounts of money.
The insurance companies should also get involved to cover the expenses.
If you want to get scientific about this subject, there is this 11-page article on The study of magnetic stimulation by Vincent Walsh\ Matthew Rushworth.
Here are some perfect examples of chronic disorders may be related to mental illness that some having to live with, all of their lives or have lost control and in many cases die.
- Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior (O.C.D) such as the fear of germs.
- Mr. Howard Hughes, the well-known billionaire who suffered from (OCD) germaphobia for many years, before his death.
- Mr.Howie Mandel, a Comedian, suffers from (O.C.D)of germs. Even to this day, it governs his daily life.
- Mr.Robin Williams, a Comedian, Actor, challenged mental health issues all of his life in the end, Sorry! To say the illness won!!:((
- Miss.Whitney Houston, Film Actress, Singer also lost her life to some form of mental illness.
- A perfect (exp.) of this is paranoia, happen in 1938, science fiction story by Mr.H. G . Wells, The invasion by aliens in the War of the Worlds. That cause mass hysteria of the population to “blow a fuse” that prevented them from distinguishing reality from fiction causing panic and loss of their mental ability to know the difference Mr.H.G Wells days later had to apologize for the Broadcast (October 31\1939 that caused fear and panic and inform the population that it was a fictional story.
- There are all kinds of conspiracy theorists and theory and philosophy on this subject, creating at times Schizo effective disorders a psychotic disorder and paranoia in our society. These are well known, serious psychiatric situations and in my opinion, if not treated will lose touch with reality, which will in the end. Sorry! to say, lose our best! By ( suicide.)
Could this be one very good reason, of many, why our governments keep a tight lid of secrecy and acknowledgment of disclosure from the populace of any such knowledge of alien contact?
There are all kinds of conspiracy theorists on mind control, believing that (HAARP= High-frequency Active Auroral Research Center ) conspirators believe is a mind controlling device, believed by conspiracy theorists around the country. H.A. R.R. P.
This is my opinion. I ask myself if our government is not responsible for what happens in L.Vagas last year when a man lost his mind and killed many in a concert, we will never know, will we!
