Ok I am watching Oprah right now *shutup* and there is a little girl on here who has childhood schizophrenia and; she is constantly trying to hurt her self and others. Her parents have to live in two separate apartments to protect their other child from their daughter. She hallucinates all the time, has hundreds of imaginary friends, an island where the imaginaries live, her own language and these imaginary friends tell her to hurt people.

I for one would put this kid up in a psych ward forever and, put it out of her misery and mine because really is her life worth it and is it worth wasting your time to constantly look after her? And what about the other kid?

What is your take on this? Oh and if you live in the central U.S. time zone it is on right now.

edit: She is on the strongest drug an adult schizo has available to them right now.

I'd give her a pen and tell her to write books. Or draw shit. People love looking at weird shit. And read them. Edgar Allan Poe I'm looking at you.

Schizophrenia is treatable with numerous drugs. I would go that route before condemning the poor girl to a psych ward for the rest of her life.

If she is not responding to medication then that's when you put her into a psych ward.

You can say you'd just put her out of her misery,but if it was your flesh and blood offspring the choice wouldn't be that simple.

On a related note,I think it's disgusting that a fat cow like Oprah profits of the suffering and tragedy of others and idiots see it as her doing something noble.

Did you see chimp lady? Jesus tap dancing Christ was that horrendous.

So putting her in a psych ward will help her? I have a deep fear of asylums, so I'll keep her. Poor thing.

They don't have drugs she can take?

She takes drugs but, they basically do nothing. The dad even said that he "accidentally" took some and he couldn't stand or stay awake and she was just running around like she just took aspirin.

I bet she could write some pretty great books/movies with all that shit. I mean, look at Lord of the Rings for example. There's a bunch of different characters, a made up fantasy-world, the elves have their own language.

Today's medications let schizophrenics function almost normally (assuming normally is what society decides it to be).

True, very true but, I would imagine that these guests would get some money in return for sharing their horrible lives.

Meh,she may make them feel "better" about whatever horrible thing they have going on in their lives,but it's basically just exploitation disguised as a loving and helpful environment.I can assure you that she wouldn't have these people on the show if they didn't attract a large viewing audience and make a lot of money for her in the process.Maury Povich does the same thing,but he openly admits that it's exploitation for the sake of profit and entertainment.

^ How did I miss the Opera thing?

Her language isn't even cool; it is just English words and numbers put in random order.

You and Kensai don't really understand what schizophrenia is. It may look glamorous and romantic from the outside, but being that person (or close to him) is terrible.

I love opera. Not only does it distract me from my problems, but it always has an interesting story, and great orchestrations.

There's some shit on there, dude. There's a reason over half of the people in controlled trials stop taking the meds.

CAN allow them to function at a socially desirable level - not always will. The schizophrenic spectrum is wide, symptom-wise. There are people who might have few auditory hallucinations, but are fully aware of their surroundings, or even their condition, or people who live practically in a dream-world, will never 'snap out of it', cannot distinguish reality and hallucination, and do not understand that they even have a condition.

Sometimes the drugs work...others they don't...others they turn the patient into a vegetable.

Hmm... Interesting point. Anyway, according to what little information I gathered from the thread, I don't think it's a biologically influenced problem. I think it's got more deep-seated roots, like trauma.

Yeah, I realize schizophrenia is a horrible condition to live with, but I'm just saying, something good could actually come from this.

EDIT: Also, I just watched some clips of it on youtube, and honestly, i think something very creative can come from her world of "Calalini".

It certainly has biological roots. In most of the twin studies, if you have schizophrenia, your fraternal twin has a 50% chance of having it too. With a population occurrence of around half a percent, that's substantial.

I am aware of that (Mental and Personality Disorders are one of my interests), but it doesn't necessarily mean that it's biological. Child Schizophrenia (an extremely rare condition) may be caused by several reasons, including dietary issues and psychological trauma.

How in the hell did you even know I was Jewish? I don't mention that at all in my profile!

I didn't, it's just a Jewish stereotype to be greedy, and as you insinuated that the girl's imagination could be profitable, well, not much further to go from here.
