quote from wikipedia:

"There are three forms of brief psychotic disorder: 1. Brief psychotic disorder with a stressor, such as a trauma or death in the family. 2. Brief psychotic disorder without a stressor, there is no obvious stressor. 3. Brief psychotic disorder with postpartum onset. Usually occurs about four weeks after giving birth."




this is what i meant, in terms of this particular disorder and you are trying to describe all the symptoms of depression which are both inaccurate and cost defective.

I don't know at all what you mean and where did I say in this thread: "a depression is..."?
And furthermore I didn't put the wikipedia link in there. If you go back to what I originally wrote you wouldn't find it! 8O
So PLEASE qoute me at least accurate!

I most certainly do not need to re-quote what it was you said. You are presuming to be totally accurate, in your supreme findings of autism and shizotypical behaviour when i am afraid, they are not the same, nor does one influence the other. Most of it starts off with mania which can be on many of the spectrums which we see today and i am unsure what you mean i should understand what you're trying to imply in your pm.
All i know is, your findings are not scientifically accurate and mine are. if you had posted the correct link for the correct cause you would have amassed the presice actions debated by you across the whole forum.

For anyone else who wishes to assume me wrong, please check your own findings without trying to ridicule someone elses first in the process of diagnosing yourself without correct theories or ideas. Thank you and happy easter to all of you who want to enjoy the festivities!

I found a very intersting article:

The Relationship of Asperger’s Characteristics and Schizotypal Personality Traits in a Non-clinical Adult Sample
http://libres.uncg.edu/ir/uncg/f/T_Kwap ... p_2006.pdf

Quote:
The Relationship Between AD and SPD
These findings have implications for conceptualizing schizophrenia and autism spectrums; i.e. whether or not they exist on distinct or separate spectra. While both AD and SPD are considered separate diagnoses, they share traits at a descriptive level (see Tables 1, 2) and according to our semi-partial correlations (see Table 5). This relationship has clinical implications if considering whether there are actually two distinct spectra. Consider, first, what would be the case if the two disorders, usually thought of as being members of two distinct spectra, were members of the same spectrum. If so, it may be that the behavioral phenotypes as described in the DSM IV would in fact be one and the same although they come to appear different when positive symptoms emerge in some cases. Consider, on the other hand, what would be the case if the disorders actually do come from two different spectra. If so, it may be that at some point in the developmental course of the two disorders, they may appear almost identical, and in fact, individuals on the two spectra who become “stuck” within this behaviorally similar period may never be able to be differentiated based upon behavioral tests, alone.

I listened the last days to an expert discussion about schizophrenia, because my half-brother had schizophrenia. So I'm a bit interested in this disorder. They also talked about the fact that some schizophrenic people have autistic like symptoms in childhood, sometimes with learning disorders, but unlike autistic people they suddenly catch up in teen years/young adoolthood and then develop schizophrenia. Well besides of the schizophrenia, that's exactly what happend in my case. I mostly catched up within a very short period of time, with 14 years of age and had nearly complitly catched up in young adoolthood. But I had many typical autistic signs in childhood and also dyslexic, but was always somehow social.
Sadly I don't really find anything about that statement that some schizophrenics have autistic-like symptoms in childhood...!? :?
So I wonder if I maybe developed schizotypal personality disorder instead and if this also applies for this disorder?


This is kinda funny because 14 is when I had my major psychotic break. (At the time though, since I was so guarded, it was seen as mostly overvalued ideas and I received a schizotypal diagnosis from the same doctor who had before diagnosed me with Asperger's.) Of course, it's not clear what it was. Because of some grandiose themes in the delusions, it could have been mania; it could even have been an atypical psychosis that sometimes develops in ASD; or it might have been something on the schizophrenia spectrum.

Anyway, what makes this so funny, is that after I was put on a high dose of antipsychotics and the psychosis had lifted, I had a major functional improvement, becoming more functional than I ever had been in my life, relative to age. I had problems with disorganized speech for years before even the psychotic episode, but after that it disappeared*; I had major problems with inhibition and controlling my emotions--those improved as well. Even when I went off the antipsychotic on my own, I still maintained my improvements. It was like I got the improvement, but it was after the psychotic episode.

* This might have been due to better self-monitoring. I suspect I still have a high level of cognitive disorganization.

This is a really interesting thread, thanks for the links to the tests:

AQ: 46 8O
SPQ: 27

I'm just really un-paranoid about people talking about me, etc. I'm always absolutely SHOCKED when someone says "oh, so and so and I were talking about you..." I'm completely baffled as to why anyone, even my friends and family would talk about me when I'm not there, even in a good way. It's like I think I stop existing for them when I'm not in the room. So strange. I'm also way, way too trusting, I guess. I don't think my friends are conspiring against me, if they did, they wouldn't be my friends. As for my coworkers, I guess it's that thing of I don't think I'm that significant when I'm not there. I find gossip really puzzling.
