IM SOOOOOOO HAPPY THAT YOU ARE STUDYING THE BRAIN. WE LIVE IN AN ERA WERE MEDICATION IS NOT A CURE BUT AN AID TO HELP WITH SYMPTOMS OF SCHIZOPHRENIA IF U FIND THIS STUDY SOMETHING U LIKE I ASK THAT U STUDY RESEARCH AND ASSIST IN RESEARCH IN NEW WAYS TO COMBAT ILLNESSES SUCH AS SCHIZOPHRENIA
MAN BEING SCHIZO IS TOUGH I GOTTA BE NORMAL ITS A STRUGGLE THE MAIN THING WE NEED FROM PEOPLE IS EMPATHY UNDERSTANDING AND COMPASSION
considering I am a psychology major who constantly studies Neuro science including the way depressants, stimulants, etc have on the brain and the neurotransmitter dopamine responsible for addictions I wouldnt argue Neuro science with me or theory's relating to science or the human brain.
@SABRINA your judgment is extremely invalid you don't know how these people react to weed every person has a different reaction read some articles, tests are being done every day on the benefits of marijuana use and mental illness. I hate ignorant people like you your holding back people from benefiting this wonderful plant.... Disappointing.... its an outstide option to normal medication that has been proven to give wonderful results for people who have tried everything else I support it 100%
i know exactly what you are going through , my mom is the same and it's hard to explain to people what is going on , i suggest looking up a therapist &/ psychiatrist in your area and if she wants the help then she will go medication is the hard part they tend to go off them as soon as they think they better .
i grew up with my mother having this diease and until you have dealt with in person your entire life then you will never understand, and also as somone with manic depression/adhd smoking pot has helped me more than any madication i was ever prescribed to me.
I attend West Chester University of Pennsylvania, I dual major in criminal justice and psychology. In the intro it said that Josh resides in West Chester, PA. I would like to meet this kid and attempt to help him. It;s stories like these that drive me to understand this debilitating illness and find ways to stop it. Its a shame but God bless him
It's also a stimulant, smart one.
If your depressed than smoking pot which is a depressant is NOT going to help you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i met joshua & his girlfriend last summer and desperately need to get in touch with them. josh, if for any reason you check this it's lauren lesher from brandywine hospital. look me up on facebook or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!!
none of you can say josh's mom is horrible until you have had a child with schizophrenia.
Josh's mom is horrible
Have you gotten any help ? Just noticing no one has commented saying anything.
Wow. I didn't even notice that. Seems like you pay too much attention to the color of peoples skin.
