Oh, I see. Thank you for letting me know.
The shift towards describing mental illnesses as dimensions is not anti-psychiatry, and it probably will happen for sz too as research supports the use of dimensions to describe psychosis.
I do agree that’s it’s all a spectrum. Even looking at the few of us here that’s obvious. But I don’t know about disregarding the diagnosis altogether.
It’s all in a spectrum.
I think they they should do away with the “schizo” labeled diagnoses and how they are defined.
It’s time for new perspectives.
Some sz symptoms real but some of them is about social insecurity like justice, politic polarization socio cultural perceptions.this unhealthy political environment mimic paranoid sz very well.
“psychosis (typically characterised by distressing hallucinations, delusions, and confused thoughts) is also argued to exist along a continuum and in degrees.”
There are clearly degrees in psychosis and subsequent disabilities. I can daily measure these differences at work where some other Sz co-workers are clearly more able to do some complex or hard tasks, not only due to more confident or responsible personality . There is a low profile, under the radar competition between us. My therapist try to avoid me comparing my abilities with high functioning ones. But they tend to overpower the group with arrogance.
