Psychosis. What signs of frustration?

Sometimes at people happen to the mountain: in one of days they find out that their relatives from - for psychoses turned into absolutely other people. And what to do how to help such people how to sustain enormous load of own nervous system, many just do not know.

Psychosis is called the group of mental disorders which cause the distorted perception of a picture of the world therefore the person behaves inadequately a situation.

Depending on the reason of emergence of psychosis, allocate two big groups of frustration. The first group includes frustration which were caused by organic defeat of nervous system. For example, such psychoses are characteristic of patients with atherosclerosis, brain syphilis, some types of tumors can provoke such frustration. The second group of psychoses is caused by genetic features of nervous system, psychological factors.

All types of psychoses have such symptoms as inadequacy of behavior of a psychotic, strange affective reactions, detachment, inadequate perception of reality, a problem with generalization and judgment of the events, tendency to morbid depression.

Display of psychosis are cardinal changes in the attitude towards people, the phenomena, objects of reality. Often changes develop into the hostile or released perception of the world.

The first phase of development of psychosis is characterized by morbid depression, the patient is concerned about a state of health, is sure that from it scary diagnoses and so on hide. Crazy or hallucinogenic constructions and attempts to improve the relations with world around are characteristic of the second phase. The problem is that the patient seeks to build the relations in the thought-up world, and its people around and he live in real.

People, inclined to psychosis, quite often show certain deviations prior to the beginning of an active phase of a disease. Character of the person worsens, irritability and excessive sensitivity is noticeable, appetite vanishes, sleep disorders are observed, he is depressed, becomes lacking initiative and negligent in relation to himself. Working capacity and resistance to stress falls.

Much having psychosis are fond of religion, an occultism, begin to be interested in supernatural. From the point of view of social relationship, people at which psychosis develops, changes cardinally: retires into oneself, tears off communications with many people, becomes suspicious. The patient has a feeling that he hears and sees what other people cannot perceive, besides, there is a confidence in supernatural influence on it of strangers and objects (for example, suspicions arise that someone reads his mind).

If someone from relatives had at least a half of the described symptoms, you should not postpone visit to experts.

My experience shows that very difficult happens to convince the patient that he should address the psychiatrist or the psychotherapist. Do not insist on such visit at once, offer, for example, visit to the psychologist for fight against a depression better. The psychologist or the psychotherapist will be able to convince the patient that in visit to the doctor there is nothing terrible, medicines are not a way to poison the problem member of society. Besides so far psychosis at an initial stage it is possible to manage with small losses. Namely: the good psychoanalyst or the psychotherapist and the chemical preparations sparing not always. The combined therapy during which reception of stabilizers of mood, antidepressants, neuroleptics or other preparations is combined with psychotherapy sessions can significantly facilitate life to both the most sick, and the people surrounding it.

It is worth passing consultation of the psychotherapist also to people who constantly communicate with a psychotic. The matter is that psychoses, as a rule, on an outpatient basis are treated, and it means that the environment of the treated person will pass a series of heartrending experiences, and it is necessary to be to them ready and the nobility how to behave in different situations, to be able to resist to stresses.
