Schizophrenia is known as a severe mental disorder that can lead to the patient’s incapacity, that is, the inability to function normally in everyday activities. People with schizophrenia suffer from an abnormal interpretation of reality and this can manifest itself through delusions, hallucinations and severe disturbances of thought and behavior.
The symptoms can be varied and usually appear in men around the age of 20 and at the beginning of this decade; in women, at the end of their 20s. In exceptional cases it may appear before these ages, in adolescence, for example. The most common symptoms are:
Hallucinations: the person sees and hears things that do not really exist, but that they live with total intensity.
Fantasies: the patient believes false things, such as being persecuted or harassed.
Disorganized speech and thinking: ideas cannot be organized in a coherent way and this is manifested in the speech.
Abnormal motor behavior: occurs when the patient becomes overly agitated, resists doing tasks, moves aimlessly, among other manifestations.
