Stress is the classic ailment of the 21st century and accepted as part of our working lives. In fact, stress is generally perceived as a barometer of success. Dynamic professionals seem keen to publicise the fact that their lives are blighted by this modern anguish.

In contrast to socially acceptable moaning about minor stresses and strains, The Day I Snapped investigates what happens when the stress of working life causes a major meltdown. Linda, Elinor, Simon, Justin and Linn were pushed to the point where they were ready to ‘snap’. This is a very human account of what happens when anxiety gets too much to cope with. The story of a GP, a teacher, a social worker, a farmer and a businessman whose stress levels rendered them unable to function. How did the situation reach breaking point in the first place? How did they deal with it? How have their lives changed since?

It is as important to care for your children’s mental health as it is to care about their physical health. Back in past centuries, any discussion related to a persons mental health was automatically assumed to mean that the individual had a problem with his sanity. Today we know that such assumptions are incorrect.

What was termed insanity may well have been a state of depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder. These are all problems that can be corrected

There are several types of behavioral disorders, and they are also often referred to as disruptive behavioral disorders. They are quite common in children of all ages, and are usually the reason that some children are referred to specialized health care practitioners for evaluations and/or treatment.

Contrary to what many parents might believe, all children’s mental health problems are not the same. Among the different types of behavioral disorders are those that you probably hear of quite often: attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); conduct disorder; and oppositional defiant disorder.

ADHD is one of, if not the most, researched subject within the field of children’s mental health. It can be seen in children at a very young age, and the symptoms most often times occur all together. Many parents recognize that their children are inattentive, impulsive, and are highly active.

For most, the signs of ADHD are not blatantly clear until the child reaches elementary age and begins attending school. Regardless of what age a parent realizes that their child may be suffering from this disorder, they surely want to know what caused it to happen and what can be done about it.

What is known is that ADHD is a biological disorder of the brain; although it has yet to be confirmed, studies suggest that the disorder is genetic. Additionally, it has been found that children having ADHD have a lower brain metabolism in the areas that control attention, social judgment, and movement.

Conduct disorder is characterized by antisocial behavior; children suffering from this disorder invariably exhibit actions that violate others’ rights. They often act outside of age-appropriate social standards and rules. Some of the behaviors seen in these children or adolescents often include irresponsibility, delinquency, and physical aggression toward others.

Those affected by conduct disorder resort to truancy or run away frequently, and they even commit crimes of theft, assault, or in extreme cases, rape. With the effects of conduct disorders being so extreme, it’s natural to wonder if you, the parent, is at fault and what you can do to help your child.

Many medical experts have concluded that conduct disorders are multi-factorial, and often are caused by a combination of biological, physiological, and external factors. Over time and with help, this problem can be corrected

Oppositional defiant disorder is another of the common types of behavioral disorders, and it’s characterized by uncooperative and annoying behaviors towards others, especially authority figures. Children and adolescents with ODD cause a lot of stress and trouble for the people around them.

Though there is no definitive cause of ODD, there are a few theoretical explanations for the development of the disorder. One such developmental theory suggests that the problem starts when children are toddlers; they have difficulty learning apart from their primary attachment figure, and thus, their autonomous skills don’t properly or fully develop. Learning theory suggests that the characteristics of ODD are simply learned attitudes that reflect the effects of negative reinforcements that are commonly used by parents and authority figures.

Although the exact causes of these different types of children’s mental health disorders is not always known, it has been identified by various research that disruptive behavior disorders are caused by both biological and environmental factors.

In any such case where a child is suffering from or thought to be developing a behavioral disorder, it is always important and necessary to seek the assistance of a qualified medical professional for advice in dealing with the situation.

When we see a homeless man begging on the side of the road it evokes different emotions in us. If he appears out of touch with reality, we feel fear. If he is an alcoholic and begging for money, we feel anger, assuming his alcoholism is what landed him on the streets in the first place. What we don’t realize is that in many instances, people who are homeless are often mentally ill and on no medication. It is common for drugs and alcohol to be used in an attempt to self medicate, leading to addiction problems.

Mental illness strikes new victims each day, robbing them of a quality of life that most people maintain on a daily basis. Those of us who live with a sound mind are often unaware of the suffering the mentally ill endure unless we have a friend or relative who has this disease. In silence it attacks the mind, rendering it powerless without some kind of intervention. In turn, the one suffering is forced to depart from all that he or she has known as normal and enters a private hell from which there is no escape. To be a prisoner of your own mind is a tragedy that that is incomprehensible yet intriguing at the same time. Often used as a platform for movies and entertainment, it is anything but entertaining to the one who is in its grips.

Isolation creeps in as friends and family keep their distance when behaviors become unpredictable and bizarre. Forced to face the frailty of the human mind we often turn our heads in an attempt to maintain our own strong standing when we see that this disease is not a respecter of persons. Where does that leave the sick? Imprisoned, alone and friendless. This, in itself, is the greater tragedy. In a world where there is so much information and insight there is no excuse for such ignorance. What do the mentally ill need from us the most? They need understanding and compassion, but most of all, they need a friend. Be one.

A person suffering with severe bipolar disorder shoplifts an armload of clothing during an attack of acute mania. He or she is sent to prison, to co-exist with gangbangers, rapists, and murderers. Or, perhaps worse, to live in a solitary cell with no human interaction, for 23 out of 24 hours each day. The acute mania shifts to severe depression.

In my practice, I have met many misconceptions about mental illness from patients and their relatives. I can’t blame them. Mental illness has not been understood for a while. In fact, it has created a stigma that people dismiss its importance and its impact in their lives. Some even hide their emotional difficulties from the scrutiny of their close friends and loved ones.

The Cure for Mental Illness is not one specific cure, but having suffered greatly in the past and now tasting freedom, I know there is a cure. It’s not a formula, but it is using the biblical tools God leads you to use. It’s a combination of things converging for YOUR freedom (or the release of a loved one or friend.) It’s a prescription from the Great Physician, Dr. Jesus Christ.

Integral to educating people about mental illness is dispelling myths. Hayes points out that mothers do not cause mental problems in their children, although their depression may affect a child’s development of it. However, it is just as likely a mother can prevent mental problems in her child. Hayes states, “Nurture mental wellness in a new mother and she then can nurture it in the child.

So are social worker’s fears well-founded? How much protection does the ADA really afford those with mental illness? According to Paul Appelbaum, MD, professor of Psychiatry at Columbia University, Past President of the American Psychiatric Association and chair of the APA’s Council on Psychiatry and Law, to qualify for the ADA, a person has to be impaired and “substantially limited” in one or more life activities.

Mental illnesses are not inherited. The similarities in behavior and dysfunction are not due to the actions of genes or other hereditary influences. Rather, the similarities result from a child (then, teenager and adult) enacting subconscious negative agreements and selfish behavior pattern-ideas that were taken-on (downloaded) from the parent displaying similar behavior. This subconscious child-to-parent agreement and pattern idea transfer will make the child appear “like” that parent.

Other mental illness symptoms are known to include a lost of interest in happiness and enjoyment and the tendency to social isolation when most people feel powerless, lonely and disconnected from other people and the world around them.

In such cases a person suffering of mental disorder is known to lose interest in former hobbies, sports, past times and social activities. Very often a mental sickness of different kind from depression to bipolar disorders is expressed as an irritable mood and explosive behavior.

RECOVERY:

Ten years ago when my son became ill with paranoid/schizophrenia all we could think of was that ‘this illness will go away soon and all will be well’. But it wasn’t quite that simple and there certainly are too many stories to tell now. Once you have seen your loved one go to the depths of ‘hell’ all you want is for them to be “OK”, well, anyway that was what we thought.

Having a withdrawn behavior and “lonely” attitude are some of the more important mental illness symptoms that need to be looked out for by family members and friends. Withdrawing from family life and social activities that had been previously enjoyed by the individual is one such symptom.

It’s come to my attention, that there seem to be an increasing amount of mental health issues popping-up these days, including, but not limited to, “selective memory loss, paranoia, and delusion”. Otherwise healthy and rational human beings, have been coming up with the most extraordinary statements lately, which lead me to believe they must be effected by a highly virulent strain of some mental blockage/malfunction. We may be experiencing a deadly virus far more sinister than the passing cold (and I doubt we’ll be able to have this one analyzed by the CDC).

In recent weeks I’ve actually heard with my very own ears, lifelong Democrats, and rational fence-sitting Republicans, say they are NOT going to vote for Obama! (What the hell does that mean?!)

For some, that means they are actually considering voting for McCain, & more of the failed Republican agenda, which got us into this mess in the first place (re: “selective memory loss”). They reason that the dysfunctional known, is better than the wide-open unknown, and have retreated to the well worn paths of the past. (I suspect the oft used Republican ploy of “paranoia politics” has taken it’s toll here, and these people have finally succumb to it’s oozing, baseless fear.) They’ve lost so much of their happiness in the last 8 years, that they’re reluctant to put any more of their existence on the line, and will try to hold onto the little sanity they have left, with both hands.

For others, they’ve swung their two-cents into the various Independent Parties, reasoning that they have to vote their conscience, … no matter what! (Now this group, though I applaud their basic fortitude and integrity, I’d have to diagnose in the “delusional” category.) In theory, our voting system is set-up to bend to the will of the majority of the people it governs. Sounds good on paper! However in practice, if you split up the majority into numerous separate issue groups, this enables a carpet-bagging minority to slip in the back door, and push their limited agenda on everyone else, … whether we really agree with it, or not. So, though initially well intended, this approach becomes the equivalent of shooting yourself in the foot to avoid future cuticle issues, and their votes will essentially be negated in the ultimate electoral results.

I’ve even heard underlying implications (and a few outright ones), that some just won’t vote for a black man for President. Disregarding that Obama is also 50% white, these people seem to be succumbing to the outdated ethnic opinions and fears of their forefathers’ generation, totally dismissing the fact that if our country were in a world-wide dog show, … we’d definitely be in the ‘Mutt’ category.

I know in normal, everyday life, these people would never treat another human being cruelly, or with unprovoked malice (here’s where we touch briefly on “multiple personality disorder”). But somewhere in the building anxiety over the condition we find our country in, their past rote teachings, of ancient paranoia, start whispering to them. They end up robotically reciting the unwarranted anger, and hatred of someone ‘different’, like a speech you had to memorize in school once, and can’t get out of your head. (*Note: This symptom also borders on “post traumatic stress disorder”, which makes sense, if you consider the last 8+ years our leaders have been holding the population hostage, with their astronomically incompetent decision making.)

Due to the widespread aggravated symptoms I have described above, I find it necessary to issue a nationwide alert at this time! Even if you’re not exhibiting any symptoms of the aforementioned mental health issues, we have all been exposed to this insipid virus, and need to be inoculated. Therefore, we must immediately dispense a massive dose of Sanity and Common Sense to the entire voting populous! (As always, generic doses will be readily available.)

After these people have had a chance to truly ponder their future, without the debilitating constrictions of this mental dis-ease, they too will come to the inevitable conclusion that there is no other choice, if we want to save our beloved country from disaster, and will thank us in the long run.

Description:
Mental illness doesn’t care about race, age, religion, education level or income; it can affect anyone, even celebrities. Research shows that as many as one in five Americans have a diagnosable mental illness. Many don’t seek treatment out of fear of rejection or discrimination, since the stigma surrounding mental illnesses is still intact and going strong.
But the stigma is slowing being broken, as more and more sufferers come forward to talk about their illnesses. Many celebrities that previously struggled in silence have come forth. Coming from the mouth of the rich and famous, it seems people are more inclined to listen to the outspoken heroes of their favorite films and television shows.
