You Have to Know This
Did you know that schizophrenia means "split mind?" Since most psychiatrists don't believe in God, this term refers to those who believe in the supernatural (e.g., angels, demons, God, etc.), which most psychiatrists call "fantastic hallucinations." Hence, they believe that those who cannot distinguish "fantasy" from "reality" have "split minds."
Did you know that there are several types of "schizophrenia?" 75% of those called as "schizophrenics" hear "voices," and some also see "visions." But the remaining 25%, who have no "voices" or "visions" are still called "schizophrenic" by traditional psychiatrists.
Did you know that psychiatrist E. Torrey describes these "voices" as "voices that command you to kill yourself, voices from outer space, two voices carrying on a conversation, even the voice of God."
Did you know that although there are several theories for the cause of schizophrenia, the definitive cause is still UNKNOWN?
Did you know that 1 out of every 100 people in the U.S.A is called a "schizophrenic?"Did you know that schizophrenics can be Bi-Polar (manic-depressive) at the same time, and vice-versa?
