even assuming they can treat the illlness, and in my time they've claimed that with me, can they treat the stigma label
there used to be massive stigma attached to leprosy, to the point they hung a bell around the sufferers necks. :(

Pretty much the one thing i think we're all in agreement with is, Mental Health Treatments have to change, and with the Accerlation of Technology, once this begins it will probably roar forward.

I knew a girl who lost a baby to SIDS, it used to be a real severe problem where i lived, rarely a year passed you didn't hear of some poor family who lost a baby.

Then they taught mums to put baby down on their side not their tummies (we used to actually get taught this!) and now no one knows a mum who lost a baby to SIDS.

Within my adulthood its gone from Common to Almost Never. In front of my eyes.

there are plenty of people who don't accept schitzoprenia is a genetic biochemical illlness controlled by chemicals, theres plenty on this web site what i know is in the 80s 90s when they were mapping the genome it was widely predicted that the gene for this genetic illness would be found, never happened

as i said i've experienced been deemed cured among other things, when i called the victim support as i had said i was schitzoprenic the women turned up with a cpn, i heard them in the car park,as they left, the women was saying my flat smelt and someone should hear about this the cpn said they said he wasn't schitzoprenic and it's caught up with them

cutting edge research is indicating a lack of vitamin d during development in the womb

much like lack of folate resulted in spina bifida.

Now, they give pregnant mums folate = no spina bifida.

also, a lot of babies used to die at birth before they discovered it was Vitamin K, began giving shots as routine, the babies stopped dying.

Imagine if its That Simple. :(

but it probably isn;t that simple theories have come and gone, as new scientist said the current half life of genetic theories on personality is 6 months, half of theories are disproved every 6 months

anyway at my age having had the illness so long i have no wish to get better and have my benefits cut, as my brother said when you get to 50 employers don't consider you worth training for a new job

BDU isn't clued up around it all. There have been & are hundreds of theories regarding schizophrenia/psychosis. It's multi-factorial, individual, complex & in depth. It needs a whole person integral understanding & approach.

Regardless of what has lead us to the current situation/circumstances we're neither of us, along with a percentage of others on here, able to currently be in work, & may Never be at a stage where we're able to.

That doesn't necessarily mean though that we can't be useful and at some stage contribute to society even if that doesn't mean full time work.

Hannibal Lecter once said any sane society would put me to some useful purpose or put me to death.

Granted he was criminally insane and w'ere not but you get the gist!!!

Were you aware that fifth Beatle Stu Sutcliffe (1940-62) was known as Leppo by the rest of the group!!!

i was in full time work for some 8 years between breakdowns, & have completed 7 years of further education.

i don't see work as the be all & end all of leading a full & productive life. In certain ways i feel that i have lead a far more responsible, useful & productive life since being out of work.

There are myriad ways that we can live a useful life & be of service to others.
