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 non professional 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 remains a silent killer, destroyer of men, women; Now our teenagers, what? About our first re-sponders and our brave men and women in the military.
Which, are witness to 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 suicide? “Where are the crisis counselling centres?” Help!
Please, let us not forget our dearly loved seniors. Sorry, to say, Yes, our seniors regrettably with failing health are more and more considering.
The option of (suicide.)or (euthanasia.) which means “an easy or happy death”.Especially someone suffering from an incurable illness needlessly.
Today, 2015\02\06 I, learned that. The Supreme Court of Canada pass the law (euthanasia) to be allowing Doctors to perform (euthanasia) to patients suffering from an incurable disease a request from the patient to end the suffering with dignity.
What does that mean, can we say and understand that this disease Mental illness is maybe? A man-made disorder. Can we inherit this mental illness from our parent’s genes?That`s the question?And the 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 environment played an important role in a person`s mental heath and behavior.
Antidepressant Medication in my opinion is like a curse:
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 over use of antidepressant is physically, mentally unhealthy in the long term.It`s a life sentence.That`s why I, call it a curse, 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 silent in my opinion! I will differently write on this tragic subject (suicide).
Doctors, whatever their specialty do consult each other and their encyclopedia of pharmacology to treat the situation with urgency. Yes, Doctors, do make mistakes, unfortunately, and at what cost?
Statistics Canada 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 early indication of mental illness to be aware of:
Victims of mental disorder may display, Un recognizes signs of depression such as their impulsive behaviour and showing signs of incoherent thoughts that make no logical sense. Severe Malnutrition. Eating disorders.Mood swings. Poor hygiene. Procrastination.Substance abuse. Their environment should be, considered as an early sign that something is not right and should be, investigated.
I believe that it is both, Man- made, also inherited. First, the fetus in the early stages of its development, will be 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 that a person mental attitude is health.
What is a healthy attitude you may ask, well it starts with having the right mindset, good communication skills with your peers to being, Take pride in your situation? Quote: by Bob Marley ” Don’t Worry be Happy!:))” type of attitude.
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 and the young of all ages. Knowing the signs associated with mental illness through education more so today has able socialite to the forefront to overcome this stigma of, not talking about mental illness.
The studies and research are going in the field of Genetics\Embryology\ Endocrinology\ and are still debated with no known physiological results to conclude with enough scientific certainty of the studies at this time.
What is very promising is the advancement in the field of psychopathology. Where neuroscience technology, such as 3d imaging that helps the patient to visualize brain signal and patterns that are at its weakest. After many weeks of treatment and training, they are able with confidence to cope with their disability.(Wish this technology was around sixty years ago.)
The software electroencephalogram consistently measures and monitors perceptual impairment of many mental disorders.
Such as in areas of neuro development 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 are now showing amazing results.. (Read more).
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 illness such as 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 perfect examples of chronic disorder of mental illness.
- Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviour (OCD) 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, Comedian, suffers from (OCD)of germs.Even to this day, it governs his daily life.
- Mr.Robin Williams, 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 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 apologizes for the Broadcast (Octor 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 affective disorders a psychotic disorder and paranoia in our society. These are well known, serious psychiatric situations and the suspicion that, 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 the U.S. government keeps a tight lid of secrecy and acknowledgement 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 ) is a mind controlling device, believed by conspiracy theorists around the country. H.A. R.R. P.
