... n American elderly women - ResearchGate. Article Extreme social isolation, use of community-based senior support services, and mortality among African American elderly women. Thomas Laveist. Thomas Laveist Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Message author. Impact Factor: 1.74. ABSTRACT The effect of extreme social isolation and use of community-based senior services on longevity was examined in a national sample of African American elderly women ages 55-96. Consistent with previous research on the social integration/mortality link, African American elderly women who were extremely socially isolated were hypothesized to have a higher 5-year mortality rate. Use of community senior services did not have a relationship on mortality. Moreover, considering that the previous studies LaVeist et al., 1997 which found that the quality of life and the satisfaction level of life at the old age are related to how much the elderly are socially connected, the issue of social isolation for the elderly does m...

The idea that robots can aid in the conquering of social isolation is not far fetched. “Robots” are quickly becoming a sort of ‘interactive carrier’, if you will, in helping individuals with learning and coping processes. Just within the last few months, we posted an entry about how robots are helping with the developmental growth and teaching of young children.

In a study examining factors that influence successful aging, researchers found that among a group of men in their 70s, social isolation was linked to increased levels of C- reactive protein CR-P, interleukin-6 IL-6 and fibrinogen in the blood. People with elevated CRP and fibrinogen have higher risks for heart disease and stroke. Social isolation may influence these different inflammatory markers and may be one way social relationships influence our health, said lead author Eric B. Loucks and his colleagues at Harvard and the University of California, Los Angeles, investigated CRP, IL-6 and fibrinogen as potential biological links between friends, family and health. As part of that study, researchers drew and froze blood samples in 1988. Researchers failed to find any correlation between the degree of social isolatio...

A manufacturing method for a semiconductor device structured as above includes a process for masking regions other than those predetermined to form the local oxide films for element isolation on the surface of the layer of the first conduction type, a process for ion-implanting an impurity of the second conduction type in the predetermined formation region, and a heat-treatment process for forming the local oxide films for element isolation. In addition, the size of the region of the second conduction type is small because the region of the lower second conduction type is formed adjacent to the lower tilted parts of the edges of local oxide films for element isolation in the region of the first conduction type, but does not reduce the light-receiving area because the layer of the first conduction type forms the light-receiving part. However, since the method of manufacturing the semiconductor device equipped with a photodiode according to the present invention includes a process for masking regions other than...

After expression in E. coli and isolation on gluthation-sepharose and talon-resin, respectively, I got both proteins. On SDS-PAGE are some impurities visible, which are mostly due to copurification. Therefore I tried a lot of additional methods for a second purification step gelfiltration, IEX-HPLC with anion and cation-exchanger, calf-thymus-DNA-columns, Hi Trap SP Sepharose columns. But in all cases I got the same phenomenon, the proteins did not bind to anything, they always came down in the void volume. I tried a lot in changing the parameters, like isolation with or without 1% Triton 100, with RNase/DNase, with beta-ME, with DTT, different buffer-systems and different pH-values.

Background: The prevalence of obesity has increased substantially over the past 30 years. We used longitudinal statistical models to examine whether weight gain in one person was associated with weight gain in his or her friends, siblings, spouse, and neighbors. Results: Discernible clusters of obese persons body-mass index, 30 were present in the network at all time points, and the clusters extended to three degrees of separation. These clusters did not appear to be solely attributable to the selective formation of social ties among obese persons. A person's cha...

The First Drug that Could Ease Social Withdrawal in Autism By Maia Szalavitz @maiasz Sept. An experimental drug showed promising results in treating the key symptom of social withdrawal in people with Fragile X syndrome, the most common known inherited cause of autism with intellectual disability, according to a recent clinical trial. The new study, published in Science Translational Medicine, hints that arbaclofen could be the first drug to treat symptoms of Fragile X and other autism spectrum disorders, and even other conditions involving social avoidance. In previous studies of mice that are missing the FMR1 gene and show autistic symptoms like repetitive behavior and social avoidance, arbaclofen has been able to treat these problem...

Is the School Required to Provide Social Skills Training. 05/07/12 by Wrightslaw. My daughter with autism needs help with social skills. She gets 90 minutes of social skills counseling a month. I think she needs to learn “hands on” in class, lunch, or recess, not in the “office.”. Is the school required to provide social skills training? Would this be considered a related service. Here’s an easy to read description about social skills. Social skill is not a “service” but a functional skill necessary for daily living activities.

Mice become profoundly anti-social when the creation of new brain cells is interrupted in adolescence, a surprising finding that may help researchers understand schizophrenia and other mental disorders, Yale researchers report. The Yale team decided to explore the function of these new brain cells in mice of different ages. However, adult mice that had neurogenesis blocked during adolescence showed no interest in exploring other adult mice and even evaded attempts made by other mice to engage in social behavior. “These mice acted like they did not recognize other mice as mice,” Kaffman said. Blocking adult neurogenesis had no effect on social behavior, suggesting t...

DIY Brainless Robots Exhibit Collective Behavior. By Tessel Renzenbrink on March 19, 2013 Posted in: technology Tags: BristleBots, mechanical intelligence, robots, swarm behavior, swarm intelligence, swarm robotics. We’ve all seen the amazing capabilities of flocks of birds and schools of fish to move seemingly as one. A lot of research is going into figuring out how swarm behavior works in order to mimic nature’s capabilities in swarm robotics. The ability of an individual agent to participate in collective behavior is often linked to cognition and social interaction implying that swarmbots require computational power and a sensor to function. But now scientists of Harvard university have demonstrated that brainless robots self-organize into coherent collective motion. The robots used in the experiment are BristleBots Bbots. These are very simple robots anyone can build for $5 from a toothbrush, a pager motor and a battery. When the brush head is pressed to the ground, the angled bristles give it forwar...

*  Farm Social Groupings
... Social Groupings within farm animals The social behaviour of farm animals is an important aspect of their sentience. Farm animals in natural conditions have quite complex social lives and social conventions. Living in groups requires awareness and understanding of the behaviour of others, and the ability to manage social interactions. Animal behaviour scientists have studied and compared the social lives of farm animals in natural, semi-natural and intensive farming conditions. In spite of thousands of years of domestic use, and decades of intensive breeding and farming, experts agree that the basic behaviour patterns and motivation of farm animals has changed little compared to their wild ancestors. Farmed pigs and chickens can revert to wild behaviour without difficulty. Cattle, pigs, sheep and chickens naturally live in herds or flocks. Many commercial farming methods cause social problems by joining unnaturally large numbers of animals together, changing or splitting up groups and mixing them with ot...

*  The ASMR Experiment: ASMR and social grooming
... The ASMR Experiment. ASMR and social grooming. In previous posts I described a theory of ASMR check out the ASMR theory tag on the right side of this page ; my conclusion is that ASMR is primarly drived by triggers' precision, which leads us to a state of physical and mental stillness : a condition whose importance is often ignored in the West, but widely recognized by traditional cultures. Now it's time to look at a phenomenon which can sometimes lead to ASMR: grooming. Note: linking ASMR to biology may sound strange, as I previously supported a theory which explains this phenomenon in terms of acoustics and brain waves. Social grooming. Grooming is - according to etologists - the way members of some animal species take care of each other, primarly for igienic purposes; in some species, however, grooming becomes an important social activity. The first example is massage; even in this case the ASMR effect is not directly connected to the task, and it only takes place when a massage is "tingle-oriented" b...

Obese adults are admitted to the hospital more frequently and for more days than adults who are normal weight, finds a new study that looks at how being obese leads to a need for more health care services. The study also finds that duration of obesity—how long an adult has been obese—has a direct impact on length of hospitalization. “A somewhat surprising result in our study was the fact that the length of time a person has been obese makes a much bigger impact than how severe the obesity actually is.” The study appears in the December issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, a peer-reviewed scientific publication of the American Sociological Association.

One of the main tributaries feeding into the river of depression is loneliness. It can both trigger depression and can prevent us from recovery. But loneliness doesn’t just affect mood disorders.

Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine studied the risk of coronary heart disease over a 19-year period, in a community sample of men and women. The study found that among women, high degrees of loneliness were associated with increased risk of heart disease, even after controlling for age, race, marital status, depression and several other confounding variables…. And lest there be any doubt that loneliness has far ranging effects on the health of ...

ALMOST one in four people living with cancer in Worcestershire – an estimated 4,800 people – suffer with loneliness as a result of their cancer, rendering many housebound and unable to feed themselves properly, according to Macmillan Cancer Support. New research conducted by Ipsos MORI reveals the detrimental impact of being lonely on the lives of people living with cancer. It compares the experiences of cancer patients who say they feel lonely since their diagnosis or more lonely than they did before with those who aren’t – and the differences are stark. Lonely cancer patients are three times more likely to drink more alcohol than they usually do; almost five times more like...

About APA. Psychology Help Center. May 2005 Monitor on Psychology // Only the lonely. In a study of first-year students--who, data show, tend to visit the student health center more than older classmates--researchers found that social isolation and feelings of loneliness each independently compromised the students' immunity. This month's Health Psychology Vol. "If lonely individuals are more likely to experience psychological stress or experience it more intensely, which we found, and this stress suppresses immunity, which many studies have shown, then this could be a pathway by which loneliness influences immune response," explains Pressman. The results could have real-world health implications, such as whether social factors help protect us from the flu. On days two through six starting the day before the flu shot , participants also collected saliva samples four times a day to measure levels of the stress-hormone cortisol. Loneliness was also associated with a poorer immune response to A/Caledonia as late ...

... There are many groups and charities in Kent which can provide support for those with dementia and their carers. Tracey Crouch. Tackling loneliness in older people. While these fantastic organisations exist, the challenge in tackling loneliness is to ensure that those older people who are socially isolated are identified and then connected with the schemes which can help them. As those older people suffering from loneliness are, by definition, isolated socially, it is essential that those who do have contact with them are able to recognise the signs of loneliness. Before Christmas, I tabled an adjournment debate on the fight against loneliness in the House of Commons and managed to highlight some of the fantastic work done by the Campaign to End Loneliness and the countless charities which provide a lifeline to socially isolated older people. Tackling this issue will not only help thousands of older people in communities across the country but will help to save on the massive cost of loneliness for local ...

(1/807) An analysis of multiple misplaced parental social contingencies.

This study analyzed the training of a mother to modify five subclasses of her attention to her young child's noncompliance with instructions, and also displayed the changes in her child's behavior correlated with these events. Training in four subclasses consisted of teaching the mother to withhold various forms of social attention to her daughter's undesired behavior; training in the fifth subclass involved introduction of a brief room-timeout procedure for noncompliance. The effectiveness of the parent-training procedure, consisting of initial instructions and daily feedback, was demonstrated through a multiple-baseline design across the five subclasses of parent behavior. Sequential decreased in the first three subclasses of the mother's social attention to undesired child behavior resulted in incomplete improvements in some child responses; however, a decrease in the fourth subclass resulted in a significant increase in undesired child behavior. Complete remediation of all child behaviors was achieved following the training of a timeout procedure for noncompliance. Postchecks conducted up to 16 weeks later showed that these effects were durable.  (+info)

(2/807) The effects of social punishment on noncompliance: a comparison with timeout and positive practice.

The effects of social punishment, positive practice, and timeout on the noncompliant behavior of four mentally retarded children were assessed in a multitreatment withdrawal design. When programmed, the experimental procedure occurred contigent on non-compliance to experimenter-issued commands. Commands were given at 55-sec intervals throughout each experimental session. The results showed (1) lower levels of noncompliance with social punishment than with the positive-practice or timeout conditions, and (2) that relatively few applications of social punishment were required to obtain this effect. The advantages of social punishment over other punishment procedures, considerations to be made before using it, and the various aspects of the procedure that contribute to its effectiveness were discussed.  (+info)

(3/807) Blockade of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor activation suppresses learning-induced synaptic elimination.

Auditory filial imprinting in the domestic chicken is accompanied by a dramatic loss of spine synapses in two higher associative forebrain areas, the mediorostral neostriatum/hyperstriatum ventrale (MNH) and the dorsocaudal neostriatum (Ndc). The cellular mechanisms that underlie this learning-induced synaptic reorganization are unclear. We found that local pharmacological blockade of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the MNH, a manipulation that has been shown previously to impair auditory imprinting, suppresses the learning-induced spine reduction in this region. Chicks treated with the NMDA receptor antagonist 2-amino-5-phosphonovaleric acid (APV) during the behavioral training for imprinting (postnatal day 0-2) displayed similar spine frequencies at postnatal day 7 as naive control animals, which, in both groups, were significantly higher than in imprinted animals. Because the average dendritic length did not differ between the experimental groups, the reduced spine frequency can be interpreted as a reduction of the total number of spine synapses per neuron. In the Ndc, which is reciprocally connected with the MNH and not directly influenced by the injected drug, learning-induced spine elimination was partly suppressed. Spine frequencies of the APV-treated, behaviorally trained but nonimprinted animals were higher than in the imprinted animals but lower than in the naive animals. These results provide evidence that NMDA receptor activation is required for the learning-induced selective reduction of spine synapses, which may serve as a mechanism of information storage specific for juvenile emotional learning events.  (+info)

(4/807) Effects of isolation housing and timing of drug administration on amikacin kinetics in mice.

AIM: To study the influences of social condition and drug administration time on amikacin metabolism in mice. METHODS: Forty Male ICR mice were randomly assigned into 4 groups according to 1) housing condition: individual housing (I, one mouse in a cage) or aggregated housing (A, 10 mice in a cage) and 2) drug administration time: at midday (D) or at midnight (N), i.e. I-D, I-N, A-D, and A-N groups. Amikacin was injected s.c. 15 mg.kg-1 after 4 wk of raising at D or N. Blood samples were taken at 5, 10, 15, 20, 30, and 60 min after medication in each mouse. Plasma amikacin was measured by enzyme immunoassay. The concentration-time data were fitted with one-compartment open model in each mouse and data were analyzed with group t test. RESULTS: The clearance (Cl) of amikacin was larger and the half-life (T1/2) was shorter in A-N group than in A-D or I-N groups respectively. AUC(0-1) in A-N group was less than in I-N group. No differences of kinetic parameters between 2 isolated housing (I-D and I-N) groups were found. CONCLUSION: Aggregated housing and midnight drug administration increased the disposition of amikacin.  (+info)

(5/807) Socioeconomic status and determinants of hemostatic function in healthy women.

Hemostatic factors are reported to be associated with coronary heart disease (CHD). Socioeconomic status (SES) is 1 of the determinants of the hemostatic profile, but the factors underlying this association are not well known. Our aim was to examine determinants of the socioeconomic differences in hemostatic profile. Between 1991 and 1994, we studied 300 healthy women, aged 30 to 65 years, who were representative of women living in the greater Stockholm area. Fibrinogen, factor VII mass concentration (FVII:Ag), activated factor VII (FVIIa), von Willebrand factor (vWF), and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) were measured. Educational attainment was used as a measure of SES. Low educational level and an unfavorable hemostatic profile were both associated with older age, unhealthful life style, psychosocial stress, atherogenic biochemical factors, and hypertension. Levels of hemostatic factors increased with lower educational attainment. Independently of age, the differences between the lowest (mandatory) and highest (college/university) education in FVII:Ag levels were 41 microg/L (95% confidence interval [CI], 15 to 66 microg/L, P=0.001), 0.26 g/L (95% CI, 0.10 to 0.42 g/L, P=0.001) in fibrinogen levels, and 0.11 U/mL (95% CI, 0.09 to 0.12 U/mL, P=0.03) in levels of vWF. The corresponding differences in FVIIa and PAI-1 were not statistically significant. With further adjustment for menopausal status, family history of CHD, marital status, psychosocial stress, lifestyle patterns, biochemical factors, and hypertension, statistically significant differences between mandatory and college/university education were observed in FVII:Ag (difference=34 microg/L; 95% CI, 2 to 65 microg/L, P=0.05) but not in fibrinogen (difference=0.03 g/L; 95% CI, -0.13 to 0.19 g/L, P=0.92) or in vWF (difference=0.06 U/mL; 95% CI, -0.10 to 0.22 U/mL, P=0.45). An educational gradient was most consistent and statistically significant for FVII:Ag, fibrinogen, and vWF. Age, psychosocial stress, unhealthful life style, atherogenic biochemical factors, and hypertension mediated the association of low educational level with elevated levels of fibrinogen and vWF. Psychosocial stress and unhealthful life style were the most important contributing factors. There was an independent association between education and FVII:Ag, which could not be explained by any of these factors.  (+info)

(6/807) Suppression of the secretion of luteinizing hormone due to isolation/restraint stress in gonadectomised rams and ewes is influenced by sex steroids.

In this study we used an isolation/restraint stress to test the hypothesis that stress will affect the secretion of LH differently in gonadectomised rams and ewes treated with different combinations of sex steroids. Romney Marsh sheep were gonadectomised two weeks prior to these experiments. In the first experiment male and female sheep were treated with vehicle or different sex steroids for 7 days prior to the application of the isolation/restraint stress. Male sheep received either i.m. oil (control rams) or 6 mg testosterone propionate injections every 12 h. Female sheep were given empty s.c. implants (control ewes), or 2x1 cm s.c. implants containing oestradiol, or an intravaginal controlled internal drug release device containing 0.3 g progesterone, or the combination of oestradiol and progesterone. There were four animals in each group. On the day of application of the isolation/restraint stress, blood samples were collected every 10 min for 16 h for the subsequent measurement of plasma LH and cortisol concentrations. After 8 h the stress was applied for 4 h. Two weeks later, blood samples were collected for a further 16 h from the control rams and ewes, but on this day no stress was imposed. In the second experiment, separate control gonadectomised rams and ewes (n=4/group) were studied for 7 h on 3 consecutive days, when separate treatments were applied. On day 1, the animals received no treatment; on day 2, isolation/restraint stress was applied after 3 h; and on day 3, an i. v. injection of 2 microg/kg ACTH1-24 was given after 3 h. On each day, blood samples were collected every 10 min and the LH response to the i.v. injection of 500 ng GnRH administered after 5 h of sampling was measured. In Experiment 1, the secretion of LH was suppressed during isolation/restraint in all groups but the parameters of LH secretion (LH pulse frequency and amplitude) that were affected varied between groups. In control rams, LH pulse amplitude, and not frequency, was decreased during isolation/restraint whereas in rams treated with testosterone propionate the stressor reduced pulse frequency and not amplitude. In control ewes, isolation/restraint decreased LH pulse frequency but not amplitude. Isolation/restraint reduced both LH pulse frequency and amplitude in ewes treated with oestradiol, LH pulse frequency in ewes treated with progesterone and only LH pulse amplitude in ewes treated with both oestradiol and progesterone. There was no change in LH secretion during the day of no stress. Plasma concentrations of cortisol were higher during isolation/restraint than on the day of no stress. On the day of isolation/restraint maximal concentrations of cortisol were observed during the application of the stressor but there were no differences between groups in the magnitude of this response. In Experiment 2, isolation/restraint reduced the LH response to GnRH in rams but not ewes and ACTH reduced the LH response to GnRH both in rams and ewes. Our results show that the mechanism(s) by which isolation/restraint stress suppresses LH secretion in sheep is influenced by sex steroids. The predominance of particular sex steroids in the circulation may affect the extent to which stress inhibits the secretion of GnRH from the hypothalamus and/or the responsiveness of the pituitary gland to the actions of GnRH. There are also differences between the sexes in the effects of stress on LH secretion that are independent of the sex steroids.  (+info)

(7/807) Developing communality: family-centered programs to improve children's health and well-being.

Despite decades of enormous investment in research and public programs, the United States continues to face pandemics of preventable health problems such as low birth weight, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, and interpersonal violence. With some justification, these problems have been blamed on the failings of families. The reasons why families may function poorly in their child-rearing roles have not been coherently or vigorously addressed by our social policies; sometimes these policies have aggravated the problems. This paper provides background to allow a better understanding of families' role in the social determination of children's health, and argues for programs and policies that assist families through the creation of social supports embedded in communities that are characterized by trust and mutual obligation.  (+info)

(8/807) An expansion of the peer-tutoring paradigm: cross-age peer tutoring of social skills among socially rejected boys.

We examined the effects of a cross-age peer-tutoring program on the social skills of 2 sixth-grade and 2 kindergarten socially rejected and isolated boys. Peer tutoring consisted of the older boys conducting social skills training with their younger tutees. The frequency of positive social interactions increased for all 4 boys, with maintenance of treatment gains following a 5-week interval.  (+info)


The guy I am dating just told me he is suffering from Social Isolation?


I just recently started dating this guy, he mentioned he is very lonely person with social isolation and experiences depression. I am quite unfamiliar with this term. I researched online but I can't quite put my finger on it. 

Can someone explain this to me? Is there anything I can do to help him? When we hang out, he doesn't seem depressed at all but he admits he has been feeling down lately and lost in life.

Do you mean social phobias? i'm agoraphobic and anthrophobic, basically i have fears of open/crowded places and people, due to them i'm isolated quite often as i can't cope with social situations. Most of my human contact, outside family, is online.


Is there any medical breakdown that associates with social isolation?


To break it down is there any kind of breakdown or attack a person can face due to heavy social isolation and if so can someone tell me what's it called thank you
----------

Some people speculate that it is one of the factors that causes depression, but it is hard to tell symptom from cause. 
Depending on the environment (lack of sunlight, boredom) "cabin fever" could arise.
I really can not find anything though.


How do bipolar people make new relationships with all the stigma in society?


There is no hiding the fact that I am bipolar. I take meds regularly whether I am at home or away. Seeing as bipolar disorder and social isolation go hand in hand I would invite a way to experience social inclusion.

What sort of people would steer clear of us and what sort would accept us. 

Do you think using mental health groups, facebook, chat sites, or possible voluntary work are good options or not.
well it would be obvious to people that I am bipolar coz I take meds regularly
----------

I don't think it's helpful to have a "them" and "us" attitude.  Those with mental health problems and those who don't have far more in common with each other than things that seperate them. People who don't want to get close to people with mental health problems like bi-polar are ignorant and the best way to find out if you can trust someone enough to disclose to them is by getting to know the person.  Don't be in any hurry to tell people about your diagnosis, I believe mental health problems don't or shouldn't define who you are.  Getting to know your personality, like, dislikes is what a person should be seeing when they first meet you.  At times I've taken 3/4 medications daily related to my mental health problems-it's done in private and no one needs to be aware of this if you don't want them to be!

I know several people with bi-polar with brilliant social skills and social lives, don't think you're doomed!  I think voluntary work is a great way to meet new people while doing something constructive, and the positive thing is that your employer will likely to be understanding if you need to take time off due to mental ill health.  

Mental health social support groups can be great and a good way to socialise and become more confident in an environment that isn't daunting and has support from staff. I've made some good friends in this way but I've met much more people at groups who have or could have caused me a lot of stress.  Other people's problems can bring you down, especially if they are not managing their illness and people in these settings can be very clingy.  I've found at groups lots of people can have a long history of living in hostels, hospital admissions or substance misuse and their instinct can be to take what they can get from others and use them, especially if they see you as an "easy target" so just be aware of this.

If you want to use chat sites then go for it.  Just don't replace the real life with a virtual world.  I've been scared off mental health problems because I've been freaked out by users who view a forum as their world.  That's not helpful and just makes functioning in society seem more daunting as the person avoids it, and can hold back progression and recovery.  

Good luck with everything.


Is using social networkig website good for mental health or bad?


Does social networking website cure and prevent social isolation related mental disorders like paranoid personality and schizophrenia?
----------

Social networking does not "cure" social isolation, and it certainly doesn't cure personality disorders or schizophrenia.  These mental health problems don't have any cures at all and things that do help are medical and psychological treatments backed up by research.

I don't think there is any problem with social networking in moderation regardless of a person's mental health.  Excessive use of social networking when someone has social isolation issues related to mental illness will only make it worse. I agree with the above answers points.

The Internet should be used alongside "real life" contact not replace it. I have mental health problems, including social anxiety and have been freaked out going on m.h forums in the past and the way a lot of users view it as their whole social life: from stating they think about other members lots when they're away from the computer from suicide attempts and ending up in hospital over online "arguments".  That's ridiculous.

I've known people who depend on the Internet fully for socialising lose touch with reality, thinking because a few people on a small forum state an opinion it is a widely held one in society.  Also having really big egos or very low confidence that's only based on their own thoughts because they don't get much chance to see how others react to them.

Another thing to consider is time spent online can take away from attempting socialising with people in person.  Avoiding situations people find hard or scary fuels the anxiety over it.


How to survive independent study in high school?


I got kicked out of school over a year ago for substance possession and although they'll let me back in at my old school, my parents won't let me go back until the end of the semester. It's incredibly boring sitting in my house day after day doing nothing and the social isolation is kind of depressing. What would you do in this situation?
----------

I'm actually in a similar situation.

Try getting a part time job, so you will have money which will let you spend any remaining free time enjoying yourself.

If you don't want to work, find a time consuming hobby, something good for you like reading or working out/ sports.


If there was a club for socially inept invdividuals, would anyone join it?


Isn't that the tragedy of social isolation that any attempt to bridge the gap between people is doomed to failure?
----------

It's sad because it's nobody's fault.  Socially inept people either don't realize their ineptitude, which means they are constantly damaging relations with potential friends, or they do realize it, so they withdrawal and isolate themselves.  Regardless, depression and anxiety affect them daily.  And then to top it off, most people who are socially apt don't realize that socially inept people don't do so on purpose, so they reject them for not acting the way they should, because they figure that if someone doesn't act like they like them, then they probably don't like them.

But I think clubs like that do exist, and that by sharing common behaviors socially inept individuals can get along with each other, realizing they're all in the same boat and have similar feelings.  I think ANY social interaction is better than none, and that the more comfortable people become with that interaction, the more likely they will be able to go out there and lead productive, social lives.  Human beings are social animals, when we are left alone, we get too much into our own heads.  This makes that ineptitude even worse.  The most important thing is if someone wants to be isolated, then that's fine, but there are very, very few people like that.  Most are forced into isolation.  I think people like this simply need courage, and really you gotta figure, you are who you are, you can't really change that, so you can either live in misery about it, or you can live in bliss with it.


I read that people who do good in Arts and bad at PE are more likely to get schizophrenia, is that true?


It was in a study. Also immatureness, unpopularity, social isolation, creative mind and anxiety.
----------

I don't see how that is necessarily true.  What you read about was merely a correlation, not proven fact.


Do you find people accept the positive symptoms of schizophrenia (voices, delusions) more than the negative?


(poverty of thought, lack of motivation, social isolation, blunting of emotions etc)
Which symptoms do you suffer from?
Wocco - i wonered who would leave the first tiresome comment they are deluded into thinking is "wit"
Tuddy - there are what is called "positive" and "negative symptoms of schizophreia. Positive does not mean good in this sense, it means there is something there that isn't there in normality. Negative symptoms take something away that is there in normality.
----------

I worked with people diagnosed with schizophrenia for twenty years and my opinion is that although the 'positive' symptoms often cause the most distress initially it is the 'negative' symptoms which usually cause the most disability.  Most people learn to live with and accept a certain degree of voice hearing, etc but the lack of motivation, difficulty concentrating and loss of social skills seriously affect their ability to live a 'normal' life. But how people are affected varies greatly, some are able to get back to work, etc whilst others just don't seem to be able to get their lives back on track.
