schizophrenia in the music~

have you ever thought that you are actually listening to a psychotic song?

has it ever occured to you that you can learn about schizophrenia by just listening the music?

according to DSM criteria to diagnose schizophrenia, you must have 2 or more of the following criteria for at least 1 month:

  1. delusions
  2. hallucinations
  3. disorganized speech
  4. grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior
  5. negative symptoms (blunted affect, poverty of speech, psychomotor retardation etc)
so here is MATCHBOX 20 with UNWELL to prove my point...hehehe

All day
Staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall

Visual hallucinations.....he sees things others couldn’t see

All night
Hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something

Auditory hallucinations...he hears voices!

Hold on
I'm feeling like I'm headed for a
I don't know why

Negative symptoms...looks like depression to me (sometimes people get confused between these 2)

I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know, right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know, right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

In denial...crazy people never admits they are crazy right??

Different side of him is after he is being treated lar

Talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train

Bizarre’d be freaked out to see people talking by themselves right?

I know
I know they've all been talking 'bout me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong
With me

Persecutory delusion...they are deluded into thinking that others are talking bad things about them...

Out of all the hours thinking
I've lost my mind

Lost your mind means you have no control of your own some other thing has taken away their thought...this is called thought alienation

I been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
Yeah, they're taking me away

Persecutory delusion also...deluded into believing that others are trying to harm them eventhough there its nonsensical...
