I have a cousin who is a schizophrenic. He is 15 and at the moment is almost at the limit of
what drugs can do without having uncontrollable shakes etc. Last weekend he was staying with my mum and dad who live close and was in a
really bad state. Are you aware of anyone managing this condition with a method like, ‘How am I experiencing this moment’. It seems
sensible to tackle this problem when the attacks are at a low ebb, but as far as I know, no method has been employed in this case to even
attempt to change the status quo of the conditioning which is undoubtedly contributing to the problem.
When I was young (I am now 55) I suffered from paroxysmic tachycardia (I don’t know if I
spell it right). When I was bending, or jumping not always but sometimes, my heart was rising up to 180 pulses. That create in me one
insecurity and that insecurity create agoraphobia. Now for the last 25 years with a medicine (beta blockers) didn’t happened any more,
but the agoraphobia is rooted, became a conditioned reflex.
