Sample text

They rarely, however, stand alone and are accompanied by either some form of bizarre behavior or multiple delusions. 9. What is catatonia? Catatonia A condition that is characterized by extremes in behavior, of which the individual appears to be unaware. These behaviors include being mute or in a stupor and immobile, or, at the other extreme, being in an excitatory state of extreme frenzy or agitated excitement. 16 Catatonic behavior is the extreme of being disorganized and can either be complete immobility and muteness or, at the opposite end, extreme disorganized excitability— an extreme frenzy-like behavior.

What exactly is considered a delusion? Besides paranoid delusions, there are many classical ones that patients with schizophrenia often describe, including: • Believing that the commentators on the TV are talking directly to them • Feeling that they are on a stage and everyone is acting as if this is not real life • Thinking that people can hear their thoughts or that their thoughts are on a loudspeaker, as if broadcast • Thinking that their thoughts are not their own and someone else has inserted them into their minds, or even that someone has taken their own thoughts out • Believing that an external force is controlling their movements and actions.

They can either be called schizophrenia-spectrum disorder or they can be classified and treated by the symptoms that occur, rather than the category of diagnosis. It may be that the underlying biology of what appear to be different illnesses is the same. However, the clinical manifestations may vary in different individuals, from a very disorganized schizophrenia-like degenerative illness to a cyclic episode of psychotic symptoms with normality in between—the so-called “unitary psychosis” (Crow, 1990).
