So...I've been thinking about what rembo1 was saying..and I can honestly say....I enjoy being mentally ill...my life before mental illness was boring....and thinking like a non mentally ill person was difficult....and boring....so...I have been diagnosed with an unknown phychosis....which to me means in medical jargon....WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER...SO WE'RE GONNA GIVE HER A LABEL ANYWAY SO SHE CAN FEEL OUT OF PLACE AND TERRIBLE FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE....so...I could accept that...lay down and be depressed...or find out what the medical professionals are missing in their misdiagnosis of people such as myself....and what they're afraid of...science is flawed and boxed in...and tries to box me in with their line of reasoning and labels....so does religion...the energy of the universe is bigger than science...and constantly shifting and changing....no one rule applies to anything...and no matter how hard we try there are things out there no one can explain fully...so why do people feel the need to explain or label my brain....I'm quite happy with my brain...it's fun...expanding in ways that are cool....and I got to tell you off rembo1,who seems to represent the very thing I detest... and that made me feel better...so...thank you...perhaps that's one reason why you showed up...
I believe science will touch on these experiences after a paradigm shift or two, but please understand we are using the language that we have - like someone in the 1700s trying to describe a smartphone, or like "mental illness" instead of something more palatable. It can be off-putting if you are not open to that form of expression, but maybe we will agree on accurate descriptions eventually.
Yes, if these are actual hallucinations, Mouse should have them checked out to be sure they are not a health hazard. But she did say she's had them all her life, so that seems less likely than the field research tack.
As far as schizophrenia is concerned, I am hoping for many repetitions of successful treatment by shamans, and perhaps after a while we will understand what is actually going on: http://www.wakingtimes.com/2014/08/22/shaman-sees-mental-hospital/ .
