Medication and the Power to reason

as a Veteran of Paranoid Schizophrenia, I've got an angle on it, it no longer haunts me
But I think when people first become unwell and are put on Major Tranquilisers, the medication which keeps them out of Psychosis also prevents them from working out ' What on Earth happened '.
They lose the ' Power to Reason '.

True. These states can often be worked through; given the right therapeutic environment - But how many in the West are given such an opportunity?

Great - it helps to a degree I suppose - It is a very poor substitute for 'real life' interactions however. I do enjoy the net - it is good for information & networking (meeting people). There does however need to be a balance.

Real lIfe interactions

What tends to happen:

Is that i'll see a patient in town, and neither of us knows if we're taking our tablets.
So to avoid what could be an embarrasing or even dangerous situation - we ignore each other
