need help with a mental diagnosed illness?

By Guest Author On March 24, 2010 Under Self Help Tips

If someone was diagnosed with a mental illness (scitzophrania) bout 6 Years ago, but now is not receiving SSI, nor is not under any psyciatrist care,either taking any medications are they still considered to have that mental illness that was initially diagnosed with….then 3 years later was ordered by cps to have a psychological evaluation and was possibly diagnosed with depression only, now holds a driver’s license,and has a job, car,etc…..now tryin to obtain a cdl license and a Concealed Handgun License, but more certain that " have u ever been diagnosed with mental ?" Will come across in both applications….recently went back to psyciatrist office and requested another evaluation to be done, but secretary type out a letter stating that " scitzophrania was still present without the evaluation being done, when under doctor care, meds would make it worse like sleepless nights if not on meds., hallucination would appear when on meds., and feeling over tiring,self motivation and family, and goals is what helps out on a daily basis….where can an evaluation be. Done., and is either mental illness permanent

Schizophrenia is not an illness that dissapears…and can easily be confirm with an MRI or other brain imaging. You would most definitely know if you have it by being aware of your symptoms, your age, and especially, your family history. Usually the condition occurs during late adoslence and is passed down through generations, most times from a parent. This does not, however, mean that the person will get it; is a general rule and something to watch out for. You don’t say what type you were diagnosed with, or, how this psychiatrist arrived to this conclusion. Most conditions are diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia, but there are others. If this is the condition, you would experience disorganized thinking, hear voices, have feelings of persecusion from others, including institutions or organized bodies. Of course, you would be depressed; and conditions can overlap! A person with this condition cannot function on a job, school, or other activities without medical assistance; you appear to be doing good– having a clear understanding of what you want to accompish. I may add that even having focused treatment, the condition would flare up in your daily activities. Your writing seems clear, at least at first glance, and missing information seem to be your understandable desire to not share too much. Did the psychiatrist conduct test to confirm this diagnosis? Does your insurance cover mental health? If not, check the yellow pages and look for organizations that will provide mental health for a small fee and get a second opinion. Depression is very treatable, while schizophrenia is treatable as well, but is more challenging to handle. Don’t ignore it. Do some research of your own using a respectable and relible source so that you are in the know about the services and tests you should be getting from your mental health professional. Most importantly, overall is all workable. I’ve studied with classmates that have this condition and they function just fine. Press forward.
