Rare and Unusual Psychiatric Syndromes

I HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING MY BLOG AS MUCH AS I AM.

 

SO, LET ME ASK YOU THIS QUESTION.

WHAT’S THE FIRST THING COMES TO YOUR MIND WHEN YOU HEAR THE WORD “MENTAL DISORDER”? CRAZY, RETARDED, OR WEAK? WELL TO SOME OF US , WE HAVE SOME MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT MENTAL DISORDER SUCH AS ” MENTAL DISORDERS ARE SIGNS OF WEAKNESS OR PERSONALITY FLAWS, PEOPLE WITH MENTAL DISORDERS ARE VIOLENT OR HEALTHY PEOPLE AREN’T AFFECTED BY TRAUMATIC EVENTS.

WELL, I’M HERE TO TELL YOU THAT  MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AFFECT ALL OF THE SOCIETY IN SOME FORM, WAY, OR SHAPE. NOWADAYS, WE TEND TO FLING THESE TERMS ( MENTAL ILLNESS, MENTAL HEALTH, AND MENTAL DISORDERS) FREELY IN SOCIETY, STILL MANY OF US ARE NOT QUITE SURE ABOUT THEIR MEANINGS OR PURPOSE TO OUR LIVES.

SINCE THIS SECTION IS ABOUT TALKING OF RARE DISEASES, I REFER THESE TO YOU AND THEY CAN ALSO  BE RECOGNIZED, DIAGNOSED AND/ OR  MANAGED. THEY ARE AS FOLLOWED:

CAPGRAS SYNDROME, WAS NAMED AFTER A FRENCH PSYCHIATRIST WHO DEFINED THE ILLUSION OF DOUBLES, IS A DELUSION OF MISIDENTIFICATION. IT USUALLY HAPPENS IN PATIENT WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA, DEMENTIA, EPILEPSY AND AFTER A TRAUMATIC OF BRAIN INJURY.

FREGOLI SYNDROME, WAS NAMED AFTER THE ITALIAN ACTOR LEOPOLDO FREGOLI WHO BECAME FAMOUS FOR HIS CAPABILITY OF CHANGING HIS APPEARANCE DURING HIS FIRST STAGE ACT, IS THE INVERSE OF CAPGRAS SYNDROME.

REDUPLICATIVE PARAMNESIA IS CONSIDERED AS A DELUSIONAL BELIEF THAT A LOCATION OR PLACE  HAS BEEN DUPLICATED. BASICALLY, IT IS THE DELUSION OF DOUBLED C.S , ONLY  DOES NOT REFER TO PEOPLE BUT TO PLACE.

 

 

THE SYNDROMES ARE VAST, BUT YOU CAN LOOK INTO THESE: ALIEN HAND SYNDROME, ALICE IN WONDERLAND SYNDROME OR TODD SYNDROME, JERUSALEM SYNDROME, PARIS SYNDROME, DISSOCIATIVE AMNESIA, FOREIGN ACCENT SYNDROME, STOCKHOLM SYNDROME, LIMA SYNDROME, STENDHAL SYNDROME, DIOGENES SYNDROME, MUNCHHAUSEN SYNDROME, AND APOTEMNOPHILIA AND ACROTOMOPHILIA.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW THAT RECOVERY AND WELLNESS ARE VERY POSSIBLE AND THAT THOSE WHO SUFFER MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES AND DISORDERS CAN ALSO LIVE THEIR LIVES TO THE FULLEST, ORDINARILY WITH LIMITED OR NO PROFESSIONAL INTERVENTION.

THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY

XOXOXO
