Dealing With Schizophrenia
When people go through a psychotic disorder for the first time, their negative symptoms as a result of the schizophrenia disorder causes them a fixation in which they are thinking that they would not succeed to beat the disease, and therefore they remain in the same situation most of their lives. Unless they would react and do things to release themselves from that fixation:
- Be assertive
Sufferers of schizophrenia disorder should act in an assertive way. They should claim things for themselves that otherwise will not be given to them due to their schizophrenia. They should stand up for their right to be treated as normal as possible.
- Find a job
In order to be independent and earn your own money without being supported by the government, people who suffer from schizophrenia should find a job that both keeps them occupied during most of the day and therefore not thinking only about their illness and earn a decent living from it.
- Find a mate
One of the most important polls in life is your partner to live, your boy or girl friend, or your soul mate. A partner in life helps very much to deal with the daily lives and support you in everything you do. He or she is also the person to talk and share with almost about anything.
- Do exercise
Doing exercise has many benefits such as reducing the amount of the bad cholesterol in your blood, helping you sleep better and deeper, reduce body weight and blood pressure, remaining in fitness and so on.
- Defining goals
One of the most important ways to release sufferers from their fixation is by determining goals in life and going to reach them. It also helps them to show themselves that they are capable of doing stuff and get things that others think they can’t.
