So ummm... why does answers in gene simmons think I have Schizoaffective Disorder?

I'm curious...

“A meritocratic society is one in which inequalities of wealth and social position solely reflect the unequal distribution of merit or skills amongst human beings, or are based upon factors beyond human control, for example luck or chance. Such a society is socially just because individuals are judged not by their gender, the colour of their skin or their religion, but according to their talents and willingness to work, or on what Martin Luther King called 'the content of their character'. By extension, social equality is unjust because it treats unequal individuals equally.” "Political Ideologies" by Andrew Heywood (2003)

Mmmmmmm noooo, not an established fact, yet. The last MRI scan I had (2004, I'll admit) demonstrates no structural abnormalities associated with congenital psychosis and/or schizophrenia. I haven't demonstrated any symptoms of psychosis except during extended lengths of sleep deprivation. I should also point that prednisone caused a bunch of unintended behaviors/mental disruptions that should NOT have been.

  1. I do feel more aggressive/on top of things some months more than others.
  2. I do have weird delusions. (aka schizotypal personality)
  3. I do have a great deal of suspicions regarding others (more schizotypal stuff)
  4. I am naturally, severely depressed
  5. I have a lot of anxiety (without paxil, that is)
  6. I say weird shit sometimes
  7. I "act whacky" (I'm not all that concerned with me making others comfortable with my words/)

Nope, I don't think I qualify. You have a hotlink/url where I claimed to be schizoaffective? (It sounds vaguely familiar)


Btw... WTF is this shit?

If you have delusions and depression, that sounds a lot like schizoaffective disorder to me. It is a combination of a few schizophreniform symptoms with a mood disorder.

Mood disorders, actually. clinical depression + bipolar. I had some rough moments in in childhood (), along with parents who had... really fucked up priorities in child-rearing which (I think) explains my clinical depression

  1. The problem with your supposition, unfortunately, is that there's a difference between delusions formed consciously (ie personality-wise), and delusions formed from other, less controllable 'layers' of the mind
  2. There's a helluva lot more to schizophrenia than deluded behavior
  3. Bipolar disorder has 1 or 2 types of delusions associated with it
  4. I make an active effort to suppress certain sensations/emotions
  5. I enjoy solitude
  6. I don't enjoy time spent with ingrates/incurable extroverts without an ounce of character
  7. Everything that people enjoy doing in groups I enjoy by my lonesome's
  8. Some people-centric activities seem HIGHLY counterintuitive to me
  9. hmmm... what else... no thought disorder (that I'm aware of), no hallucinations, no inappropriate affect NOT attributable to Bipolar fluctuations (I? II?) what were the other symptoms of schizophrenia?
  10. I am somewhat suspicious of others thanks to genetics dammit the hell.
  11. I do tend to 'freeze up' in response to certain social stimuli (I'd rather not explain this)
  12. I have good self-esteem (most days) but not much in the way of self-confidence
  13. I occasionally demonstrate symptoms of malignant narcissism (Not going to explain this either, but trust me, it's there sometimes)
  14. I'm highly manipulative/indirect in most social interactions (why not?)
  15. (For shits and  giggles) I posted a hotlink to a porn site in Sapient's birthday thread. It was deleted, thankfully
  16. I enjoy bullying others (usually males) I consider weak in terms of mind (bipolar, schizoid, schizotypal, narcissism)

Delusions are a symptom of

Delusions are a symptom of schizophrenia. I don't think it matters whether they're formed consciously or not. But by "delusions" I mean "erronious beliefs", not merely false ones. You may be using the word in a different sense, in which case you're in the clear.

Schizoaffective disorder doesn't require as many schizophreniform symptoms as schizophrenia for a diagnosis. It is also much more easily treatable. It just sounds bad because it has "schizo" in the name.

Schizoaffective disorder doesn't require as many schizophreniform symptoms as schizophrenia for a diagnosis. It is also much more easily treatable. It just sounds bad because it has "schizo" in the name.

Diagnostic Criteria for Schizoaffective Disorder

A. An uninterrupted period of illness during which, at some time, there is either:

  1. a Major Depressive Episode,
  2. a Manic Episode, or
  3. a Mixed Episode

concurrent with symptoms that meet (4) Criterion A for Schizophrenia.

Note: The Major Depressive Episode must include depressed mood.

(1) Criteria for Major Depressive Episode

[Available separately.]

(3) Criteria for Mixed Episode

[Available separately.]

(4) Criterion A for Schizophrenia

Two (or more) of the following, each present for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period (or less if successfully treated):

  • delusions
  • hallucinations
  • disorganized speech (e.g., frequent derailment or incoherence)
  • grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior
  • negative symptoms, i.e., affective flattening, alogia, or avolition

Only one symptom is required if delusions are bizarre or hallucinations consist of a voice keeping up a running commentary on the person's behavior or thoughts, or two or more voices conversing with each other.

B. During the same period of illness, there have been delusions or hallucinations for at least 2 weeks in the absence of prominent mood symptoms.

C. Symptoms that meet criteria for a mood episode are present for a substantial portion of the total duration of the active and residual periods of the illness.

D. The disturbance is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition.

Specify if:

  • Bipolar Type: if the disturbance includes a Manic or a Mixed Episode (or a Manic or a Mixed Episode and Major Depressive Episodes)
  • Depressive Type: if the disturbance only includes Major Depressive Episode

My delusions do not result from schizophrenia or "splintered mind disease", that I'm aware of. I do have an overabundant imagination, so my delusions are formed as a force of will (and more importantly, from the architecture of my personality)

I take lots of meds. They are probably the reason I'm so level headed. Of course, I was a lot more popular when I was crazy, I just got in a lot more trouble. I was the talk of the town. Sanity is kind of overrated, but it keeps me out of jail.

For someone who has crippling 'schizophreniform' symptoms, sanity basically is overrated. Quoting from a Law & Order episode: "It's easier to be crazy than it is to be sane" (or words to that effect)
