INTRODUCTION Schizophrenia (from the Greek roots skhizein ("to split") and phrēn, phren- ("mind")) is a severe mental illness characterized by a variety of symptoms including but not limited to loss of contact with reality. Schizophrenia is not characterized by a changing in personality; it is characterized by a deteriorating personality. Simply stated, schizophrenia is one of the most profoundly disabling illnesses, mental or physical, that the nurse will ever encounter (Keltner, 2007). There are 5 subtypes of schizophrenia naming; paranoid, disorganized, catatonic, undifferentiated, and residual. Schizophrenia undifferentiated is the type of schizophrenia wherein characteristic symptoms (delusions. Hallucinations, disorganized speech, grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior, and negative symptoms) are present, but criteria for paranoid, catatonic, or disorganized subtypes are not met. Schizophrenia is not a terribly common disease but it can be a serious and chronic one. Worldwide about 1 percent of the population is diagnosed with schizophrenia. About 1.5 million people will be diagnosed with schizophrenia this year around the world. (mentalhelp.net). Ninety-five percent (95%) suffer a lifetime; thirty-three percent (33%) of all homeless Americans suffer from schizophrenia; fifty percent (50%) experience serious side effects from medications; and ten percent (10%) kill themselves (Keltner, 2007). According to study done 697,543 out of 86,241,697 of Filipinos or approximately 0.8% are suffering from schizophrenia

(cureresearch.com). Here in Davao, Dr. Padilla said that the Davao Mental Hospital receives an average of eight to 10 patients a day suffering from schizophrenia, depression and bi-polar illnesses (Positivenewsmedia.net). Schizophrenia Ranks among the top 10 causes of disability in developed countries worldwide (World Health Organization, www.who.int) Schizophrenia is a disease that typically begins in early adulthood; between the ages of 15 and 25. Men tend to get develop schizophrenia 4

slightly earlier than women; whereas most males become ill between 16 and 25 years old, most females develop symptoms several years later, and the incidence in women is noticeably higher in women after age 30. The average age of onset is 18 in men and 25 in women. Schizophrenia onset is quite rare for people under 10 years of age, or over 40 years of age (schizophrenia.com). The group 1 of BSN-3H was given opportunity to have a hospital exposure in Davao Mental Hospital last January 19 – 30, 2010 for their psychiatric exposure. It was on that said dates that the group found a creditable case sensible to be presented as case presentation as suggested their Clinical Instructor Apple V. Guiao, R.N. M.N. and was agreed by whole group. The patient, Bob, not his real name, was one of the patients admitted to the Crisis Intervention Unit of Davao Mental Hospital due to Schizophrenia Undifferentiated. The group chose Bob as their subject primarily because his case posed as a very intricate case requiring due understanding and knowledge. Making this case is a good avenue to broaden the proponents’ knowledge about the mental illness involved.

ANAMNESIS A. INTERVIEWS Informant #1 Name: Aina Age: 58 Address: Purok 1, Rizalian, Bayugan, Agusan del Sur Sex: Female Civil Status: Married Relationship to Client: Mother Length of Time Known by the Patient: Since Birth up to Present (40 years) Apparent Understanding of the Present Illness of the Client: According to Aina, her son, Bob, started having the condition when he stopped schooling in late August of 1987 and went back to Agusan because he thought lessons in school are becoming too difficult for him. Bob also verbalized that something is wrong with him and that he needed a psychological check-up. Yet, Aina did not pay attention to what he said; until two days after, Bob’s tongue shrunk, hindering his speech. This event forced Aina to bring Bob to San Pedro Hospital for a check-up. In San Pedro, no diagnoses indicating any mental illness resulted and they were asked to come back for a follow-up check up the following month. On November 1987, Aina brought Bob back to Davao City for a check-up but transferred to Davao Mental Hospital. There, Bob was diagnosed with Schizophrenia Catatonic Type and was admitted for two weeks; after which, he was discharged and was asked to go back to the hospital once a month for psychiatric evaluation and for monthly doses of a depot. Aina says that Bob at times would show extreme hostility and wild behavior. She believes that Bob’s wild behavior which is the reason for his second admission in December 2007 and 12

current admission this January 2010 is due to Bob’s incompliance with the advices of the doctor to stop drinking coke, alcoholic beverages and smoking. The current admission of Bob is already his third admission. Bob and Aina were only at the Davao Mental Hospital to have Bob’s monthly dose of his depot but Bob shouted at the doctor without any apparent reason, exhibiting extreme hostility and wild behavior. This action convinced the doctor that Bob may need a three-day admission at the CIU for observation. After which, he was then discharged Characteristics and Attitude of Informant: Sincerity and concern regarding the condition of the patient is highly evident in the verbal and non verbal cues of the informant during the interview. She looks straight to the eyes and is very cooperative all throughout the interview, trying her best to recall all events that took place in connection to the condition of her son.

Informant #2 Name: Emman Age: 39 Address: 162 Interior Tulip Drive, Matina, Davao City Sex: Male Civil Status: Married Relationship to Client: Brother Length of Time Known by the Patient: Since Birth up to Present (39 years) Apparent Understanding of the Present Illness of the Client: Emman said that the illness began when Bob went to Bukidnon in August 1987 to fetch him and go home with him to Agusan. On the night of Bob’s arrival, he started having a convulsion and 13

was given paracetamol. Hours later, Bob was caught eating his own feces and drinking urine from a potty. After the incident, they went home to Agusan. Since then, Bob started to think and talk illogically, displaying disorganized speech and delusions. Weeks later Bob was brought to Davao for a check-up, first as San Pedro then at DMH. Since then, Bob has always been visiting Davao Mental Hospital and was even admitted two times, one in November 1987 then in December 2007, prior to the recent admission. Emman sees Bob’s condition rooted from that convulsion which took place in Bukidnon. As to the reason of the convulsion and the events that took place prior to the convulsion, the brother does not claim any knowledge. Characteristics and Attitude of Informant: Emman was very open and receptive to the group during the interview. He had shown efforts to recollect all salient points regarding the condition of his brother.

Informant #3 Name: Carmz Age: 18 Address: 162 Interior Tulip Drive, Matina, Davao City Sex: Female Civil Status: Single Relationship to Client: Sister Length of Time Known by the Patient: Since Birth up to Present (18) Apparent Understanding of the Present Illness of the Client: Mae understands Bob’s condition because she is a student nurse. According to her, Bob’s manifestations are indeed characteristics of schizophrenia. She believes that Bob’s condition will be 14

best improved if Bob follows all medication orders of the doctor and strictly avoid everything that the doctor prohibits him to take. Characteristics and Attitude of Informant: The informant was very responsive in the conversation, showing strong desire to tell the group everything that she knows about the illness of the patient.

Informant #4 Name: Mimi Age: 39 Address: 162 Interior Tulip Drive, Matina, Davao City Sex: Female Civil Status: Married Relationship to Client: Sister-in-law Length of Time Known by the Patient: Since Marriage up to Present (20 years) Apparent Understanding of the Present Illness of the Client: According to Mimi , the patient has been isolated and withdrawn since she first met him when she married his brother, Emman wayback in May of 1990, the patient was 21years old by then. She noted that Bob is irritating to the family members at times because there are instances wherein he seems to act like a child. She cited incidents wherein he wakes them up in the midnight because he was hungry and asks them for something to eat or drink. Bob also occasionally asks his mother to sleep with him at night. Taking this information to consideration, the sister-in-law concluded that, somehow, Bob is a burden to their family. She can see that the siblings of Bob have been exhausted in trying to understand him. Yet, in spite this, the family still show their invaluable support and love to Bob. 15

Characteristics of the informant: The informant was open and hospitable to the group. She made ways for the group to contact the family and talk to other members of the family in order to gather data that she could not provide. The warm and welcoming attitude of the informant made it possible for the group to know more about the patient.

Informant #5 Name: Boy Age: 18 Address: 162 Tulip Drive, Matina, Davao City Sex: Male Civil Status: Single Relationship to Client: Nephew Length of Time Known by the Patient: Since Birth up to Present (18) Apparent Understanding of the Present Illness of the Client: Boy says that Bob’s condition was not improving. He said that what Bob’s actions now are the same as what he does in the past. He was always isolated, self-preserved and indifferent with others. He could even go for a whole day without talking to anybody and just watch TV. Boy also says that Bob’s strange actions like talking to the television, flight of ideas and hostile behaviors are not unusual of Bob anymore. Characteristics of the informant: Boy was at the first visit unresponsive to the questions asked by the group. However, on the next home visit, he volunteered to talk about what he knows about his uncle in a warm manner.

B. FAMILY HISTORY a. Maternal and Paternal Lineage Direct bilateral lineage of the patient show no conditions of mental illness. On the paternal side, prominent family illnesses only concern some members having hypertension. Aside from the condition, no other illnesses run the family. On the maternal line, no illness were reported to run in the family, except one family member having diabetes mellitus type 2, an illness condition occurring singularly to be considered familial. Generally, no mental illness can be traced on both sides of the family. b. Father The father is 59 years old; a known small time businessman in their place at Agusan; owning a small rice mill enough to support the needs of his family. He is a Civil Engineering Undergraduate and was able to finish only until 3rd year of the above course, due to his early fatherly obligation. He impregnated the patient’s mother, when he was only 19 years old, then eloped with her, thwarting him to finish his studies then at the University of Mindanao. As a father, he was lenient in his relationship with his children. Most of his time is spent in their rice mill and would only go home in the afternoon or at night. Moreover, he is a kind of father who would not spank or scold his children and he seldom verbalizes what he feels. He would only speak to his children wherever they do something incorrect.

17

c. Mother The mother helps in their small rice mill. Pregnant at the age of 18, she was unable to finish her college education at the University of Mindanao. She was in her second year in college when she dropped out of her Chemical Engineering course. The mother says that she brought her children up in discipline and love; she said she doesn’t spank her children because it does them no good. Like the father, she doesn’t also believe in punishing her children through spanking and the like when they do something wrong. However, as she states, she left her children to the care of nannies when they were young. And put her children in their house in Davao City to pursue their education from elementary school, leaving them, still with a nanny, and visiting them once a week. According to her, this is the best way for her to offer the best education and life to her children and help improve their business in Agusan. d. Siblings The family is composed of five siblings; Bob being the eldest, followed by the second informant, Emman, then by Carmz, Denns and then Yose . His relationship with his siblings is not so good. As a child, although they were the only ones that he would play with, he would still isolate himself when with them. He never shares his thoughts with them. Furthermore, when they grew up and the illness took place, the siblings gradually got irritated with him because of his hostility towards others.

18

III. Personality History a.) Prenatal Being the result of the early pregnancy of his mother, the patient was an unexpected child. Only 18 when she was impregnated, the mother was not ready and did not know what to do, so she eloped with the patient’s father without giving her parents the knowledge as to the reason why she ran away. The mother stayed with the father’s family in Cagayan for the whole duration of her pregnancy. On course of nine months, the mother has adequate prenatal check-ups at a nearby health center. Moreover, she was able to eat adequately because the parents of her husband supported them. They provided her with enough support for her pregnancy. b. Birth Bob was born in the Provincial Hospital in Cagayan de Oro City on the 9 th of April 1969 through Normal Spontaneous Vaginal Delivery. No complications took place in the delivery. The mother, Aina, described that her labor was very long, she started having labor pains in the morning and delivered in the afternoon. She did not also breastfeed the patient because she is having pain breastfeeding him and as reported, no breast milk would come out; so instead, she bottle fed the patient with a formula milk in a timed manner. Moreover, she hired a nanny named Nena to look after the baby because she did not have any experience in taking care of a baby, considering her age. c. Infancy and Childhood Characteristics After the birth, in June of 1969 Aina went back to Agusan to talk to her parents. She told them that she ran away because she was pregnant and apologized 19

for everything that she has done. Her parents did accept her apology and welcomed her back. On the August of 1969, Aina and Danni married each other and decided to reside in Agusan. Trying their luck in a new business, the couple got busy with their rice mill that they decided to leave Bob in the care of Nena, Bob’s nanny since birth, while they attend to their business. The nanny was very caring to the child, cuddling him always and looking after him. However, when Bob was almost five months, Nena went home to her province and was replaced by another nanny named Ging-ging. Moreover, Aina instructed her nanny to continue the timed bottle feeding routine every three hours, a routine which continued until the patient was three years old. She instructed to feed the baby every three hours, believing that this would help the nanny attend to other tasks while taking care of the baby. In cases that the baby would cry Ging-ging would just give him a pacifier for him to stop crying. Bob was toilet trained when he was 2 years old. Toilet training was mostly implemented by the nanny Ging-ging, and she is not strict in it. As he had a nanny, Aina instructed the Ging-ging to teach him to urinate and defecate in a potty because it irritates her to find urine and stool just anywhere. Aina is very strict in toilet training. But on instances that Bob would pee or defecate anywhere, Ging-ging would just clean the mess, not correcting Bob. Bob started talking when he was a year old and started walking on that certain age more or less as reported. As to the strategies and the relationship of the nanny to the child, the mother did not exactly describe because according to her, she changed nannies several times. According to her, the relationship of the nanny was not so important to her as long as the needs of her children are met and her children’s safety is not harmed. She 20

carefully instructed the nannies to give to the children everything they want to keep them from having tantrums that could hinder the nanny from doing other household chores. The mother could not remember whether or not the patient’s immunization is complete; but what she does remember is that the patient had measles before he was one year old. d. Psychosexual History The patient’s sexual awareness started when he was 16 years old, on his 4th year in high school. It was on this time that he started having a crush and actually had a girlfriend who after sometime broke up with him. This break-up with his only girlfriend bagged down his self esteem. In addition, his mother also keeps on teasinf him that his girlfriend’s teeth resembles that of a rat which further decreased his self-confidence and esteem as he tried to compare himself with the boys of his age. In his adolescence, he also engages in sexual activities with GROs. e. Play Life Bob does not engage so much in cooperative play and prefers solitary play. He would only sit by himself and play alone in a corner. His playmates were his siblings and would choose to play only in their yard. As a child, he is not talkative, he is uncooperative and becomes aggressive when forced to play with other kids. Furthermore, he likes being a follower in a game rather than a leader. f. School History The patient began preschool in June of 1974, when he was five years old where he was sent to Davao to study at Assumption up to second grade. He stayed in their residence in Davao which is in 162, Interior Tulip Drive, Matina, Davao City. He stayed 21

in Davao together with his brother Emman and their nanny. The first days in school were terrible for Bob, he would cry inside their classroom and would not separate from his nanny. In his third grade, he was transferred to Our Lady of Fatima School, which he did not really approve that he cries in between classes just to be sent home. He is withdrawn from the rest of his classmates and would talk only to a few people. His grades were also affected by his isolation, he did not perform well in school and was not interested in studying. He spent his high school days still at Fatima. In June of 1982, when he is 13 years old, he entered first year highschool, where he formed new set of friends which he grew much attached to. These friends of him were not of good influence because when they started hanging out, he began cutting classes, extorting money from his parents and having low grades. He started drinking and smoking. Also, he started using marijuana. His bad school records started worsening when his girlfriend in his fourth year high school broke up with him, these events pulled his confidence down, that he started isolating himself and increased his use of marijuana, drinking and smoking. Yet he is able to graduate from high school in the March of 1986. Troubles in school were rampant, being evident even when he is already in college. He was occasionally caught brawling with classmates. Furthermore, his mother was once called by the Guidance Office because he threw an eraser to his teacher because the eraser hit him when the teacher threw the eraser at his classmate. He was also suspected of using marijuana during this time but is persistently denying the accusations, although it was really true. Peer pressure can be seen as a great contributing factor in his use of marijuana because his friends would tease him when he refuses to use marijuana.

22

In his college days, he spent his two years of college education at the University of Mindanao, in the Civil Engineering course. However, he did not have good grades and still continued cutting classes and indulging in his vices. On his second year, he finally decided to stop, claiming that he is already having difficulty catching up with the lessons. g. Religious and Social Adaptability The family is Roman Catholic. However, when he was in college, their family converted to Seventh-day Adventists. However, the patient still follows the Catholic Faith and does not go to Seventh-day Adventist religious celebrations. h. Occupational History When the patient stopped studying during his second year in college, late in the August of 1987, he stayed in Agusan and helped in their rice mill business. There, he would help in the loading and unloading sacks of rice and also in operating the mill. Bob doesn’t get regular salary because what he gets is ten percent of the day’s income. i. Marital History The patient is single. However, he is looking forward to marrying someday. According to his verbalizations, he wants to be married so badly that he would even marry their maid at home. According to him, he already told the maid that he wanted to marry her, but unfortunately, after telling her, the maid ran away. j. Onset of the present illness The recent admission is already the third admission of Bob. Recurrence of hostile behavior is the primary reason why Bob was admitted for three days in the CIU of Davao Mental Hospital. He suddenly shouted at a doctor in the hospital upon having his monthly depot injection and check-up. 23

THEORIES OF DEVELOPMENT These are just a few of the fascinating aspects of the field of ―human development‖: the science that studies how we learn and develop psychologically, from birth to the end of life. This very young science not only enables us to understand how each individual develops, it also gives us profound insights into who we are as adults. Each theory has its own perspective on the development of man. ERIK ERIKSON’S PSYCHOSOCIAL STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT The Psychosocial Stages of Development developed by Erikson enumerates eight stages though which healthily developing human should pass from infancy to late adulthood. Every stage describes a task to be accomplished. These development stages can be seen as a series of crisis and each stage forms on the successful accomplishment of the earlier stages. Successful resolution of these crises supports a healthy self-development. Failure to resolve the crises damages the ego and maybe expected to reappear as problems in the future.

JEAN PIAGET’S STAGES OF COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT This theory pertains to the nature and development of human intelligence. LIFE STAGE CHARACTERISTICS ASSESSMENT In this stage, infants build an understanding of the world by coordinating sensory experiences (such as seeing and hearing) with physical, motoric actions. Infants gain knowledge of the world from the physical actions they perform on it. An infant progresses from reflexive, instinctual action at birth to the beginning of symbolic thought toward the end of the stage.  Thought derives from sensation and movement.  The child learns 39 ACHIEVED JUSTIFICATION The client as an infant was not by being her

that he is separated from his environment and that aspects of his environment continues to exist even they may be outside the reach of his senses. Preoperational Thought (2-7 years)  Thinking is still egocentric: has difficulty taking the point of view of others.  The children begin to represent the world with images and words. Symbolic thought goes further than connections of sensory information and physical action.  Objects are classified in simple ways, especially by significant feature; the child isn’t able to conceptualize abstractly. 40 ACHIEVED At this age, was fond of drawing that

Bob does not know how to arrange his things systematically or in order depending on its size, shape or any characteristics; other he’s

Children can execute operations and logical reasoning replaces intuitive thought as long as reasoning can be applied to specific or concrete examples.

Children show thinking is decentered -they consider multiple aspects of the problem (e.g. understanding the significance of height and width). They focus on the dynamic change in the problem. And, most importantly, they show the 41

reversibility of true mental operation.

A person with a delusion of reference believes that events or people refer specifically to him or her when they do not. For example, a woman with schizophrenia may believe that a television news

broadcaster is talking personally to her rather than to the entire viewing audience. A grandiose delusion is a belief that one is extremely famous or that one has special powers, such as the ability to magically heal people

PSYCHODYNAMICS

62

NARRATIVE PSYCHODYNAMICS Bob’s parents, Aina and Danni, eloped at the age of 18 and 19 respectively. They ran away to Cagayan because Aina got pregnant. They lived together with Danni’s parents there while Aina’s parents did not know about anything. Anxiety, guilt and shame caused emotional distress in both of them in this stage. Both undergraduates in their courses, Aina and Danni, stopped studying and were dependent to Danni’s parents to support them in Aina’s pregnancy. Danni’s parents, supportive of their child, provided a jeepney for Bob to use as a temporary means of income for them to use in the course of Aina’s pregnancy. In the course of her pregnancy, Aina had adequate prenatal check-ups at a nearby heath center. Young for pregnancy and emotionally anxious, Aina’s situation puts her child, Bob at high risk of fetal abnormalities. In the prenatal stage, the mother’s pregnancy is highly affecting the baby. According to researches, the mother’s emotional state during pregnancy may bring about long term effects in the fetus. This is so because stress-induced changes in the endocrine system of a woman during pregnancy is said to cross the placental barrier, thereby, affecting the fetal environment. Researches in low income African American populations in 2002 made by Mulder, et. Al., presented that depressed and anxious mothers during pregnancy were more likely to have negative consequences to the baby which extend far beyond the events of childbirth. During birth, the mother may experience complications, premature labor and delivery and even spontaneous abortion. Depression during pregnancy may also induce immunologic and neurological anomalies in growing fetus. Cognitive impairment, together with motor retardation may also be possible. 9th of April 1969. Aina felt labor pains early in the morning, unfortunately, Danni was out making a living, and it was some time before Danni was successfully called by a neighbor that his wife was already in labor. Aina was rushed to Cagayan de Oro Provincial Hospital. There, she

63

delivered Bob through NSVD without any complication. However, according to her labor was rather long and extremely painful. From birth, Bob was left in the care of a nanny named Nena. Aina entrusted Bob to Nena because she did not have enough skills in tending a child. Furthermore, she also has to go home to Agusan in order to talk to her parents. Bob was not breastfed because Aina felt pain when she attempted to breastfeed Bob. So she decided to feed him with formula milk in a timed manner every three hours. Bob being left to the care of a nanny and the limited presence of his parents, started building the sense of mistrust in the part of Bob as a baby. Furthermore, as Bob was not able to be breastfed, he was unable to absorb significant nutrients from his mother, together with oxytocin and colustrum, which directly contributes to poor mother-child bonding. In the August of 1969, Aina and Danni married each other in Agusan and moved there, starting a rice mill business. Trying their luck on their new business, the couple got busy in their rice mill and left Bob to the care of Nena. They would only go home at night and has poor bonding with the child. As a result feelings of Mistrust formed in the child’s psyche.

Moving on, in Bob’s toddlerhood, the core conflict in this stage, according to Erikson is Autonomy Vs. Shame and Doubt. And in the resolution of this conflict, the child must learn to imitate. Imitation being the core process involved in the resolution of the conflict in this stage, Bob is not at all fortunate. His parents’ availability was limited and the attitude of his mother and nanny were very variable. Thus, Bob developed a sense of confusion and inability to identify to any of his parents. Bob was unable to master skills such as eliminating and dressing up because everything was just handed to him readily by the nanny. Although this ―spoiling‖ of the nanny to Bob may

64

contribute to his sense of autonomy, his lack of figures of attachment bringing about confusion and inability to master certain tasks further outweighs his derived autonomy. Thus, Bob gained doubt. During his play age, Bob was a loner. He would want to be in solitary play. He would only play with his siblings and would only play inside their yard. He was not open to other children. In this stage, the core conflict is Initiative Vs. Guilt. Initiative is the inquiry of the child to the world. The child begins to explore and uncover the wonders of the world around him and use his senses to perceive the order of things. In this stage the child learns to adapt and resolve the conflict thru education. However, Bob was a loner, withdrawing from other people in play. Furthermore, first signs of hostility were noted on Bob at this stage, because he would become hostile whenever asked or forced to join other kids in their play. Bob is also a good follower rather than a leader in games. During this stage, he did not accomplish the developmental task of forming initiative but instead formed sense of guilt. In school age, Bob was as withdrawn as he is in his past developmental stage. He has a difficulty in relating to others and as a result, his school performance is highly affected. He consistently has separation anxiety and cries inside the classroom every time his nanny would be out of his sight. Because of this, Bob was unable to form meaningful relationships with others and thus formed inferiority. In his adolescence, Bob entered high school at the age of 13 in the June of 1982. Bob became attached to a certain group of friends who doesn’t seem to be a good influence to him. As a shy person, Bob didn’t have many friends, so when this small group of people asked him to hang out with them, Bob was overwhelmed, believing that they could provide belongingness and acceptance. Bob treasured this small group of friends because this is all that he has. Bob was easily affected by peer pressure. Fearing rejection if he does not do what his friends would want him to do.

65

So when his friends asked him to join them in their vices, Bob also joined in. Bob started drinking alcoholic beverages and smoking. Worse, Bob also began using marijuana. During his fourth year in high school, Bob was 16 years of age, he met a girl named Rowena and courted her. Rowena became Bob’s only girlfriend. There was actually a time wherein Bob brought Rowena home, but his mother disapproved of her because she said her teeth looks like rat teeth. This created anger and insecurity in Bob. Later on, Rowena broke up with him for an unknown reason. This break up bagged down Bob’s self esteem. He started isolating himself again and increased his use of marijuana, drinking and smoking. In this stage, Bob is obviously not in control of his life. His decisions were affected by the people around him. Even his role in the society and the people that he chooses to be with are dictated by peer pressure and the ideas of his mother. Bob therefore has role confusion. Entering college at 17, Bob went to the University of Mindanao for Civil Engineering course. However, due to his constant to constant absences and tardiness, Bob’s academic performance trampled. Coupled with his consistent use of marijuana, cigarettes and alcohol, Bob’s life was greatly affected. Behavioral changes emerged, his hostility grown so large that he already fights with teachers and brawls with classmates. He was also called in by the Guidance Counselor regarding his behavior. With this in mind, Bob therefore failed to achieve this stage of development and formed isolation. It was also in this stage that the first onset of the illness happened. Bob was 18 back then when Bob stopped studying, he went back to Agusan with his brother. Prior to going to Agusan, he had a convulsion in a trip to Bukidnon in the August of 1987, there he ate his own stool and drank urine from a potty. First persecutory delusion also emerged there. After the incident, Bob was never the same again. He is already having flight of ideas, disorganized speech, hallucinations and extreme hostility. Because of this and his verbalization that there is something wrong with him, he 66

was brought to Davao City for a psychological chec-up. In San Pedro Hospital, no mental illness was diagnosed, but upon their return the next month and transferred to DMH, Bob was diagnosed with schizophrenia catatonic type. After then, Bob constantly visits DMH for his depot. At first, control of symptoms were at its best, but as the years progressed, he was again admitted in the December of 2007 because of the recurrence of symptoms of hostile behavior. The following admission, which is on the 19th of January 2010 was also due to his hostile behavior.

Facial Expression – The patient’s facial expressions are very much appropriate to his verbal responses during the interview. He was composed and receptive to whatever the group asks him.

68

C. Behavior The patient was friendly and warm to us during the interview. He was sitting on bed calmly. He interacts well with the group and as what we had observed; he has a good relationship with his mother and his sister-in-law who were present at that time. D. Attitude towards the Examiner The patient accepted the group warmly. He entertained our questions and answered almost all of them. However, his eye contact was poor. He often looks down. II. STREAM OF TALK A. Characteristic of Talk – During our conversation with the patient, we noticed that he is spontaneous most of the time. However, there are times in which blocking is evident in between his speech. His articulation words were clear but the content is slightly vague. B. Organization of Talk – The patient was eager to talk with the group. He tries to answer every question the group asks him however, in his answers, we apparently observe succession of circumstantiality and tangentiality. He provides an excessive amount of irrelevant detail before finally arriving at the answer, or at times, he doesn’t arrive at the answer at all. III. EMOTIONAL STATES AND REACTION A. Mood – At the course of the interview, the patient’s mood was euthymic. His feelings were appropriate to the situations as he relays his answers to the group. His mood was just appropriate and basing from his gestures and other nonverbal cues, his mood is fitting to the situation. 69

B. Affect – The patient’s affect is appropriate as well. There is a marked harmony between thought content, emotional response, and expressiveness. When asked, ―Unsa may nabati nimu kadtong nagka-uyab mo?‖, he replied, ―Lipay kaayo ui. Alangan. Kaw gud daw magka uyab.‖ with a smile. IV. THOUGHT CONTROL A. Perceptions – Throughout the interview, the group observed manifestations of illusions and hallucinations. When the patient was asked if he experiences any of the two, he told us that there are times that he hears someone whispering to him. ―Naa may gahong-hong sa ako usahay na mag wild daw ko.‖, as claimed by the patient. He denied that he had any visual hallucinations however, the mother and the sister-in-law attested that during tantrums, the patient verbalizes that he sees someone whom they cannot see. B. Delusion – There are several types of delusions that are present in the patient as claimed by the patient himself, and confirmed by the mother who witnessed them all. First, the patient claimed that there is some sort of outside force controlling his thought, compelling him into the belief that somebody has aa plan to kill him – which is a clear sign of persecutory delusion. He also has a feeling that others, especially his friends, hate him because they are jealous of him. V. NEUROVEGETATIVE STATE A. Sleep The patient usually sleeps at 12 in the midnight and usually wakes up at 5am getting at least 5 hours of sleep. He says that he finds it hard to sleep at night and instead, he just spends his time watching television until he falls asleep. Five in the morning for the patient is too early for him to wake up that is why he 70

attempts to go back to sleep, but then, he is unable to do such. This is a manifestation of late or terminal insomnia. B. Appetite The patient has increased appetite. He eats a lot however, he is choosy in his food. ―Ganahan man gud ko mukaon samot na kung lami ang sud-an.‖, reported by the patient. ―Kusog kaayo mukaon nang bataa na, pero pili-an lang jud ug sud-an.‖, as verbalized by his mother. C. Diurnal Variation The patient’s mood varies during the day. He is usually fine in the morning and gets, uneasy, restless, and irritable as the day progresses. Other times, his day starts out worse in the morning and feels better later on. VI. GENERAL SENSORIUM AND INTELLECTUAL STATUS A. Orientation The patient is well oriented of the time, place and person. When asked during the interview if what date and time was it, he answered correctly. However, as the conversation progressed, we noticed that he is confused and not well oriented with the time. When asked, when did he last used marijuana, he answered, ―Two months ago. Mga 2008.‖ The group finds this statement confusing since two months ago, basing on the date of the interview, is around November of last year (2009). The patient is also oriented with the situation since he knows that he is the Davao Mental Hospital for his treatment. B. Memory The patient has difficulty recalling remote memories. When asked what his age when he went to Bukidnon was, he replied; ―Ambot lang. Wala ko 71

kahinumdom.‖ On the other hand, the patient has a good memory when it comes to remembering recent and immediate memories. C. Calculation The patient was given simple mathematical tasks like 1+1, 2-1, 18-7, 6x7 and the like. He was able to answer all of them but there we long pauses before he can finally give the answer. D. General Information The patient knows basic general information like the current president of the Philippines and even of the United States. He know the capital of some Philippine provinces and he was able to name the national hero of the country. E. Abstract Thinking, Judgement and Reasoning The patient was given a maxim translated in Visaya to evaluate his reasoning and abstract thinking. He was asked to explain the quote Try and try until you succeed. He was able to explain it but not profoundly. He said, ―Maningkamot gud.‖ And when asked to elaborate, he refused to. He was also given a situation wherein someone left her wallet, and he was asked what he should do. He replied, ―Akong i-uli. Di man na akoa so dapat nako i-uli.‖ VII. INSIGHTS The patient understands that he needs to go to the hospital for his treatment. Since he was 18, he knew that there is a problem in him and he even asked his mother to bring him to the doctor. However, he does not have concrete understanding of what his illness is. He believes that there is a lube (grasa) in his brain that is why he is acting differently, thus, he has a fair insight.

FINAL

Name: Bob Age: 40 years old

Diagnosis: Schizophrenia Undifferentiated Physician: Gioia Fe D, Dinglasan, MD

Place of Interview: 162, Interior Tulip Drive, D.C. Date of Examination: January 23, 2009

I.

PRESENTATION A. General Apperance During the home visit the group did, the patient was wearing a blue shirt and denim pants. Again, Bob looked younger that his age which is 40. He was properly groomed and looked like he had just taken a bath. He was actually getting himself ready to go back to Agusan. His fingernails and toenails are still long and dirty. During the interview, the patient was again warm and yet a little aloof to us. He looked happy to see us again for the second time. B. General Mobility a. Posture and Gait – The patient still slouches when seated but holds himself erect when standing and walking. His mannerisms are still present and evident throughout the interview. b. Activity – During the interview, the patient was able to sit straight and focus on answering the questions asked to him. There is no overactivity or underactivity nor impulsiveness noted. He was very calm and composed along the interview. c. Facial Expression – The patient was able to exhibit appropriate facial expression towards a certain topic. 73

C. Behavior/Attitude towards the examiner The patient was still accommodating to the group but we noticed that he is a little shy this time. He seated on one corner and has minimal eye contact. II. STREAM OF TALK A. Characteristic of Talk – He speaks in a loud tone and his words were very clear to us. Blocking was still evident especially when we bring in the discussion on his use of marijuana. He maintains limited eye contact this time and prefers to look down and do his mannerisms. His attention was still in the conversation though. B. Organization of Talk –Most of his statements were not comprehensible this time. Circumstantiality and Tangentiality still surfaced during the interview. He still cooperates with the discussion and still, he tries to answer the questions we gave him. III. EMOTIONAL STATES AND REACTION A. Mood – The patient was able to maintain a normal mood all through the home visit. He was responding well to the conversation and his mood was appropriate for the discussion. B. Affect – The patient’s affect was still appropriate as well. His statements jive very well with his facial expressions and gestures. IV. THOUGHT CONTROL A. Perceptions – Throughout the interview, the group did not observe any manifestations of illusions or hallucinations. He was very calm and composed. B. Delusion –Delusion of paranoia was present. He believes that his friends were very much jealous of him since his family owns a rice mill. When he was asked 74

why did he say so, he answered, ―Dugay ra ko gaduda ana nila. Maka ingon jud ko na na sina ni sila nako kay din a muduol nako.‖ This is a manifestation of delusion of paranoia. He was also asked about his illness. ―Naa man koy grasa sa utok. Murag gud ug makina. Madaot.‖ This is a manifestation of a somatic delusion. V. NEUROVEGETATIVE STATE A. Sleep The patient said that he had a good sleep the night before the interview. According to his sister-in-law, he slept at around 11pm and woke up at around 5am. He said that he did not have any difficulty sleeping at night. ―Na injectionan man gud ko gahapon mao nang maayo akong tulog.‖ B. Appetite The patient had a good appetite. He was eating his breakfast well and was able to consume a moderate amount of rice and viand. C. Diurnal Variation It was around 7:30am when we conducted the home visit and so far, he was relaxed and comfortable. He did not have any feeling of discomfort or uneasiness during the interview. VI. GENERAL SENSORIUM AND INTELLECTUAL STATUS A. Orientation The patient is well oriented of the time, place and person. He was still able to recognize our group after two days of not seeing each other. He is aware of the time and the place as well.

75

B. Memory Most of our questions to him were about his adolescent life and we can say that he has difficulty remembering details. Long pauses before answering indicate that he was trying to retain information for him to come up with the answer. The nurse asked, ―Pila man imong edad gasugod kag gamit ug marijuana?‖. He replied ―Ambot lang‖ and ―Dili ko sigurado.‖ C. Calculation The patient was given again given mathematical equations. Still, he was able to answer all of them correctly and quickly. D. General Information The patient was asked to enumerate the presidentiables he knows for this upcoming election in May 2010. He was able to name Villar, Aquino, Estrada, and Gordon. He said that he would vote for Aquino since his mother was a good example to everyone. ―Si Noynoy jud akong iboto kay maayo nang tao, liwat sa iyang mama.‖, said with calm emotion by the client. E. Abstract Thinking, Judgement and Reasoning The patient was given another set of situations and questions to evaluate him. He was asked to tell the group the meaning of certain idiomatic expressions like parang basing sisiw. He was them each correctly but with limited words. When asked if he would cheat on a quiz if the teacher is not around, he insistently answered NO. ―Dili mana maayo nang manikas ka. Maski wala pa gatan-aw ang teacher, gatan-aw man ang Ginoo.‖ He explained.

76

VII.

INSIGHTS The patient still had the same understanding of his illness. Manifestation This time, he insists his false belief that marijuana is not harmful to him and even claimed that it is therapeutic for him. Delusions were more evident this time. He also insists that his vices especially smoking and drinking Coke, which the doctor prohibited, are helpful to him. With these statements, we can say that he has a poor insight.

77

MULTIAXIAL ASSESSMENT Axis I- Schizophrenia Undifferentiated This type of schizophrenia is manifested by pronounced delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thought processes and behavior, but criteria for other types of schizophrenia are not met (Antai-Otong, 2003). Axis II Schizotypal Personality Disorder Schizotypal personality disorder, or simply schizotypal disorder, is a personality disorder that is characterized by a need for social isolation, odd behavior and thinking, and often unconventional beliefs. These people tend to turn inward rather than interact with others, and experience extreme anxiety in social situations. People with schizotypal personality disorder often have trouble engaging with others and appear emotionally distant. They find their social isolation painful, and eventually develop distorted perceptions about how interpersonal relationships form. (Psychiatric Nursing: contemporary practice. Mary Ann Boyd. 2007) Individuals with schizotypal personality disorder have odd thoughts, affects, perceptions, and beliefs. Diagnostic criteria fort 301.22 Schizotypal Personality Disorder A. A pervasive pattern of social and interpersonal deficits marked by acute discomfort with, and reduced capacity for, close relationships as well as by cognitive or perceptual distortions and eccentricities of behavior, by beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by five or more of the following: 1. Ideas of reference (excluding delusions of reference) 2. odd beliefs or magical thinking that influences behavior and is 78

inconsistent with subcultural norms (e.g., superstitiousness, belief in clairvoyance, telepathy, or ―sixth sense in children and adolescents, bizarre fantasies or preoccupations) 3. unusual perceptual experiences, including bodily illusions 4. odd thinking and speech (e.g., vague, circumstantial, metaphorical, overelaborate, or stereotyped) 5. suspiciousness or paranoid ideation 6. inappropriate or constricted affect 7. behavior or appearance that is odd, eccentric or peculiar 8. lack of close friends or confidants other than first-degree relatives 9. excessive social anxiety that does not diminish with familiarity and tends to be associated with paranoid fears rather than negative judgments about self B. Does not occur exclusively during the course of Schizophrenia, a Mood Disorder with Psychotic Features, another Psychotic Disorder, or a Pervasive Developmental Disorder      

Note: If criteria are met prior to the onset of Schizophrenia, add ―Premorbid,‖ e.g., ―Schizotypal Personality Disorder (Premorbid) 6÷10 ×100 =60%

79

Axis III- Axis 3 is not applicable to the client. Axis IV- inability to go back to school, unemployment Napoleon was unable to finish his schooling. He was a 2nd-year undergraduate at the University of Mindanao with a course of Civil Engineering. The reason for stopping school was due o the onset of his illness. As a result of the patient’s mental illness, he has not landed a permanent job and is currently unemployed. The patient’s educational attainment also made him unable to land a job. The patient is currently living with his parents and depends on them for his basic needs. Axis V- Global Assessment of Functioning a) Initial Assessment (51-60) Moderate symptoms or moderate difficulty in social, occupational, or school functioning. According to the patient, he finds it hard to sleep at night. He usually sleeps at around 12am and wakes around 5am. Circumstantial and tangential speech is also noted since he provides an excessive amount of irrelevant detail before finally arriving at the answer, or at times, he doesn’t arrive at the answer at all. According to Bob, he has very few friends. Also, he is quite withdrawn to people around him like the workers of his parents’ business. b) Final Assessment (51-60) Moderate symptoms or moderate difficulty in social, occupational, or school functioning. During the final assessment, circumstantiality and tangentiality is still noted in his speech. He was also quite aloof to the group, when the interview and assessment was being conducted.

DEFINITION OF COMPLETE DIAGNOSIS SCHIZOPHRENIA UNDIFFERENTIATED SCHIZOPHRENIA Schizophrenia is one of the most common causes of psychosis. It is not characterized by a changing personality; it is characterized by a deteriorating personality. Simply, schizophrenia is one of the most profoundly disabling illnesses, mental or physical. It is a diagnostic term used by mental health professional to describe a major psychotic disorder. It is characterized by disturbances in thought and sensory perception (hallucinations, delusions), thought disorders, and by deterioration in psychosocial functioning. Keltner, et. al, Psychiatric Nursing (p. 351).3rd Edition (1999) Philippines: C&E Publishing Inc. Schizophrenia is a disorder associated with a variety of a complex combination of symptoms, including hallucinations, delusions, disorganized speech, disorganization, flat affect, alogia, and avolition (APA, 2000; Bleuler, 1950). Persons experiencing an earlier onset of schizophrenia usually have more problems with movement from adolescence into adulthood and development of inappropriate social relationships and interactions.The course of the disease may be different for each person, depending on when the disorder manifests itself and if symptoms of the schizophrenia are compounded by a person’s use of alcohol or other substance (Brunette and Drake, 1998). Deborah Antai-Otong. Psychiatric Nursing: Biological and behavioural concepts (p. 347). Australia; Clifton Park, NY: Thomson/ Delmar Learning (2003).

Refers to a group of psychotic disorders in which there are certain characteristic disorders like disturbances in reality testing, hallucinations, delusions, withdrawal from society, etc. 101

Schizophrenia is a major mental disorder having a characteristic set of symptoms. It is most closely approximate what most of us think as ―craziness.‖ Schizophrenia ranges from mild to intense. It is the label given to a group of psychoses in which deterioration of functioning is marked by severe distortion of thought, perception and mood, by bizarre behaviour and by social withdrawal. Jafar Mahmud. Abnormal Psychology (p. 186). APH Publishing Corp. (2002)

Schizophrenia is a brain disorder that affects the way a person acts, thinks, and sees the world. People with schizophrenia have an altered perception of reality, often a significantloss of contact with reality. They may see or hear things that don’t exist, speak in strange or confusing ways, believe that others are trying to harm them, or feel like they’re being constantly watched. With such a blurred line between the real and the imaginary, schizophrenia makes it difficult—even frightening—to negotiate the activities of daily life. In response, people with schizophrenia may withdraw from the outside world or act out in confusion and fear. Maria Loreto Evangelist-Sia. Psychiatric Nursing: A Textbook and A Reviewer (p. 231). RMSIA Publishing, Quezon City, Phils. (2004)

UNDIFFERENTIATED TYPE Undifferentiated schizophrenia is manifested by pronounced delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized thought processes and behavior. Deborah Antai-Otong. Psychiatric Nursing: Biological and behavioural concepts (p. 348). Australia; Clifton Park, NY: Thomson/ Delmar Learning (2003).

102

Subtype in which the clients clearly meet the general criteria of schizophrenia, yet do not fit into any of the other three subtypes. James Hansen & Lisa Damour. Abnormal Psychology (p. 406). Hobeken, N.J.: Wiley (2005). Clients with diagnosis of undifferentiated schizophrenia display forbid psychotic symptoms (delusions, hallucinations, incoherence, disorganized behavior) that do not clearly fit under any other category. Forti Nash & Holoday Worret. Psychiatric Nursing Care Plans (p. 113). 4th Edition. Mosby Inc., St. Louis, Missouri. The essential feature of undifferentiated schizophrenia is that it cannot be classified in any category listed or that meet the criteria for more than one of the other mentioned schizophrenic disorders. Jafar Mahmud. Abnormal Psychology (p. 188). APH Publishing Corp. (2002) This type is characterized by some symptoms seen in all of the other types but not enough of any one of them to define it a particular type of schizophrenia. Maria Loreto Evangelist-Sia. Psychiatric Nursing: A Textbook and A Reviewer (p. 231). RMSIA Publishing, Quezon City, Phils. (2004)

103

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS SCHIZOPHRENIA Schizophrenia is one of a cluster of related psychotic brain disorders. It is a combination of disordered thinking, perceptual disturbances, behavioral abnormalities, affective disruptions and impaired social competency. The diagnosis of a particular subtype of schizophrenia is based on the clinical picture that occasioned the most recent evaluation or admission to clinical care and may therefore change over time. They are defined by their symptomatology. The disorder lasts for at least 6 months and includes at least one month of the active phase symptoms namely two or more of the following: hallucinations, disorganized speech, catatonic behavior, negative symptoms). The subtypes are: 295.30 Paranoid Type 295.10 Disorganized Type 295.20 Catatonic Type 295.90 Undifferentiated Type 295.60 Residual Type

Diagnostic Criteria for Schizophrenia A. Characteristic symptoms. Two or more of the following, each present for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period (or less if successfully treated): (1) delusions (2) hallucinations (3) disorganized speech (e.g. frequent derailment or incoherence) (4) grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior (5) negative symptoms (i.e. affective flattening, alogia or avolition)   

Only one Criterion A symptom is required if delusions are bizarre or 104

hallucinations consist of a voice keeping up a running commentary on the person’s behavior or thoughts, or two or more voices conversing with each other. B. Social/occupational dysfunction. For a significant portion of the time since the onset of the disturbance, one or more major areas of functioning such as work, interpersonal relations, or selfcare are markedly below the level achieved prior to the onset (or when the onset is in childhood or adolescence, failure to achieve expected level of interpersonal, academic, or occupational achievement) C. Duration Continuous signs of the disturbance persist for at least 6 months. This 6month period must include at least 1 month of symptoms (or less if successfully treated) that meet Criterion A (i.e. active-phase symptoms) and may include periods of prodromal or residual symptoms. During these prodromal or residual periods the signs of the disturbance may be manifested by only negative symptoms or two or more symptoms listed in Criterion A present in attenuated form (e.g. odd beliefs, unusual perceptual experiences.) D. Schizoaffective and Mood Disorder exclusion: Schizoaffective Disorder and Mood Disorder with Psychotic Features have been ruled out because either (1) no Major Depressive, Manic, Or Mixed Episodes have occurred concurrently with the active-phase symptoms; or (2) if mood episodes have occurred during active-phase symptoms, their total duration has been brief relative to the duration of the active and residual periods. E. Substance/general medical condition exclusion: The disturbance is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g. a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition F. Relationship to a Pervasive Developmental Disorder: If there is a history of Autistic Disorder or another Pervasive Developmental Disorder, the additional diagnosis of Schizophrenia is made only if prominent delusions or hallucinations are also present for at least a month (or less if successfully treated.

Substance-Induced Psychotic Disorder The essential features of Substance-Induced Psychotic Disorder are prominent hallucinations or delusions that are judged to be due to the direct physiological effects of a substance. Hallucinations that the individual realizes are substance induced are not included here and instead 111

would be diagnosed as Substance Intoxication or Substance Withdrawal with accompanying specifier With Perceptual Disturbances. The disturbance must not be better accounted for by a Psychotic Disorder that is not substance induced. The diagnosis is not made if the psychotic symptoms occur only during the course of delirium. Diagnostic criteria for Substance-Induced Psychotic Disorder A. Prominent hallucinations or delusions. Note: Do not include hallucinations if the person has insight that they are substance induced B. There is evidence from the history, physical examination, or laboratory findings of either (1) or (2): 1. the symptoms of Criterion A developed during or within a month of, Substance intoxication or Withdrawal 2. Medication use is etiologically related to the disturbance C. The disturbance is not better accounted for by a Psychotic disorder that is not substance induced. Evidence that the symptoms are better accounted for by a Psychotic Disorder that is not a substance induced might include the following: the symptoms precede the onset of the substance use (or medication use); the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time (e.g., about a month) after the cessation of acute withdrawal or severe intoxication, or are substantially in excess of what would be expected given the type or amount of the substance used or the duration of use; or there is other evidence that suggests the existence of an independent non-substance –induced Psychotic Disorder (e.g., a history of recurrent non-substance related episodes. D. The disturbance does not occur exclusively during the course of delirium. 

Note: This diagnosis should be made instead of a diagnosis of Substance intoxication or Substance Withdrawal only when the symptoms are in excess of those usually associated with the intoxication or withdrawal syndrome and when the symptoms are sufficiently severe to warrant independent clinical attention. 1÷5×100 112

ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY The nervous system is an intricate, highly organized network of billions of neurons and neuroglia. The structures that make up the nervous system include the brain, cranial nerves, spinal nerves, ganglia, enteric plexuses and sensory receptors. The two main subdivisions of the nervous system are the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. The brain is the center for registering sensations, correlating them with one another and with stored information, making decisions and taking actions. It also is the center for the intellect, emotions, behavior, and memory. The major parts of the brain include: the brain stem, cerebellum, diencephalon, and cerebrum. The spinal cord is connected to a section of the brain called the brainstem and runs through the spinal canal. Cranial nerves exit the brainstem. Nerve roots exit the spinal cord to both sides of the body. The spinal cord carries signals (messages) back and forth between the brain and the peripheral nerves.

115

The brain stem is continuous with the spinal cord and consists of the medulla oblongata, pons, and midbrain. The medulla oblongata forms the inferior part of the brain stem. The medulla contains the cardiac, respiratory, vomiting and vasomotor centers and deals with breathing, heart rate and blood pressure. The pons is a bridge that connects parts of the brain with one another. The midbrain extends from the pons to the diencephalon. The midbrain is a short section of the brain stem between the diencephalon and the pons. Posterior to the brain stem is the cerebellum. Traditionally, the cerebellum has been known to control equilibrium and coordination and contributes to the generation of muscle tone. It has more recently become evident, however, that the cerebellum plays more diverse roles such as participating in some types of memory and exerting a complex influence on musical and mathematical skills. Superior to the brain stem is the diencephalon, which consists of the thalamus, hypothalamus, and epithalamus. The thalamus acts a relay center for all sensory impulses, except smell, to the cerebral cortex. The hypothalamus is involved in the acceleration or deceleration of the heart. Impulses from the posterior hypothalamus produce a rise in arterial blood pressure and an increase of the heart rate. Impulses from the anterior portion have the opposite effect. The hypothalamus is also involved in body-temperature regulation. If the arterial blood flowing through the anterior portion of the hypothalamus is above normal level, the hypothalamus initiates impulses that cause heat loss through sweating and vasodilation of cutaneous vessels of the skin. A belownormal blood temperature causes the hypothalamus to relay impulses that result in heat production and retention through the initiation of shivering, the contraction of cutaneous blood vessels. The hypothalamus is also involved in the regulation of hunger and control of gastrointestinal activity. Low levels of blood glucose, fatty acids and amino acids are partially responsible for the sensation of hunger elicited from the hypothalamus. When sufficient amounts of food have been ingested, the 116

hypothalamus inhibits the feeding center. It also regulates sleeping and wakefulness. A specialized sexual center in the hypothalamus responds to sexual stimulation of the tactile receptors within the genital organs. Also, the hypothalamus is associated with specific emotional responses, such as anger, fear, pain and pleasure. The hypothalamus produces neurosecretory chemicals that stimulate the anterior pituitary gland to release various hormones. The epithalamus is the posterior portion of the diencephalon. Supported on the diencephalon and brain stem is the cerebrum, which is the largest part of the brain. The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain and controls voluntary actions, speech, senses, thought, and memory. The surface of the cerebral cortex has grooves or infoldings (called sulci), the largest of which are termed fissures. Some fissures separate lobes. The convolutions of the cortex give it a wormy appearance. Each convolution is delimited by two sulci and is also called a gyrus (gyri in plural). The cerebrum is divided into two halves, known as the right and left hemispheres. A mass of fibers called the corpus callosum links the hemispheres. The right hemisphere controls voluntary limb movements on the left side of the body, and the left hemisphere controls voluntary limb movements on the right side of the body. Almost every person has one dominant hemisphere. Each hemisphere is divided into four lobes, or areas, which are interconnected.

117

The frontal lobes are located in the front of the brain and are responsible for voluntary movement and, via their connections with other lobes, participate in the execution of sequential tasks; speech output; organizational skills; and certain aspects of behavior, mood, and memory. The parietal lobes are located behind the frontal lobes and in front of the occipital lobes. They process sensory information such as temperature, pain, taste, and touch. In addition, the processing includes information about numbers, attentiveness to the position of one’s body parts, the space around one’s body, and one's relationship to this space. The temporal lobes are located on each side of the brain. They process memory and auditory (hearing) information and speech and language functions. The occipital lobes are located at the back of the brain. They receive and process visual information. Neurotransmitters are chemicals which relay, amplify, and modulate signals between a neuron and another cell. Some neurotransmitters are commonly described as "excitatory" or "inhibitory". The only direct effect of a neurotransmitter is to activate one or more types of receptors. Examples of neurotransmitters are acetylcholine, dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid, dopamine, glutamate, 118

aspartate, and serotonin. The chemical compound acetylcholine (often abbreviated ACh) is a neurotransmitter in both the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and central nervous system (CNS) in many organisms including humans. In the peripheral nervous system, acetylcholine activates muscles, and is a major neurotransmitter in the autonomic nervous system. In the central nervous system, acetylcholine and the associated neurons form a neurotransmitter system, the cholinergic system, which tends to cause excitatory actions. Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. It plays a role in regulating neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. In humans, GABA is also directly responsible for the regulation of muscle tone.

Dopamine has many functions in the brain, including important roles in behavior and cognition, voluntary movement, motivation, punishment and reward, inhibition of prolactin production (involved in lactation and sexual gratification), sleep, mood, attention, working memory, and learning. In the frontal lobes, dopamine controls the flow of information from other areas of the brain. Dopamine disorders in this region of the brain can cause a decline in neurocognitive functions, especially memory, attention, and problem-solving. Reduced dopamine concentrations in the prefrontal cortex are thought to contribute to attention deficit disorder. Dopamine is commonly associated with the pleasure system of the brain, providing feelings of enjoyment and reinforcement to motivate a person proactively to perform certain activities. Dopamine is released (particularly in areas such as the nucleus accumbens and prefrontal cortex) by naturally rewarding experiences such as food, sex, drugs, and neutral stimuli that become associated with them. Recent studies indicate that aggression may also stimulate the release of dopamine in this way. This theory is often discussed in terms of drugs such as cocaine, nicotine, and amphetamines, which directly or indirectly lead to an increase of dopamine in the mesolimbic reward pathway of the brain, and in relation to neurobiological theories of chemical addiction (not to be confused with psychological 119

dependence), arguing that this dopamine pathway is pathologically altered in addicted persons. Projection neurons that produce dopamine are found in the diencephalon and the brainstem. In the diencephalon, dopamine cell bodies give rise to tuberopophysial dopamine projections, e which inhibit the release of prolactin and melanocyte-stimulating hormone from the anterior and intermediate lobes of the pituitary, respectively, and the incertohypothalamic projections, which connect the zona incerta in the posterodorsal diencephalon with the anterior hypothalamus and septal area. A third dopamine projection system arises from neurons scattered along the ventricular system in the periaqueductal gray, the dorsal motor of the nucleus of the vagus, and the nucleus solitarius. The preventricular system provides terminals in the gray matter along the course of the ventricles.

Longer dopamine projection systems arise from the substantia nigra and the ventral tegmental area (VTA) of the midbrain. The former, the nigrostriatal dopamine system, is particularly important in the control of motor function. The function of the VTA’s dopamine projections to the forebrain, called the mesolimbic and mesocortical systems, has been linked to the complex group of disease we refer to as schizophrenia. Sociability is also closely tied to dopamine neurotransmission. Low D2 receptor-binding is found in people with social anxiety. Traits common to negative schizophrenia (social withdrawal, apathy, anhedonia) are thought to be related to a hypodopaminergic state in certain areas of the brain. In instances of bipolar disorder, manic subjects can become hypersocial, as well as hypersexual. This is credited to an increase in dopamine, because mania can be reduced by dopamine-blocking anti-psychotics.

The locus ceruleus at the rostal end of the floor of the fourth ventricle on each side marks the position of a nucleus with a rich vascular supply and consisting of neurons containing melanin pigment. The nucleus (also known as nucleus pigmentosus) is partly in the pons and partly in the 120

midbrain, lying dorsolateral to the oral pontine reticular nucleus. The locus ceruleus is the largest of about a dozen nuclei I the brainstem that produce cathecolamines. Most produce norepinephrine, but some of those in the medulla produce epinephrine. A third catecholamine is dopamine, a transmitter used by the large neurons of the substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area, and by certain nuclei of the hypothalamus.

Serotonin or 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is a monoamine neurotransmitter that is primarily found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and central nervous system (CNS) of humans and animals. Approximately 80 percent of the human body's total serotonin is located in the enterochromaffin cells in the gut, where it is used to regulate intestinal movements.[1][2] The remainder is synthesized in serotonergic neurons in the CNS where it has various functions, including the regulation of mood, appetite, sleep, muscle contraction, and some cognitive functions including memory and learning. Modulation of serotonin at synapses is a thought to be a major action of several classes of pharmacological antidepressants.

Serotonin secreted from the enterochromaffin cells eventually finds its way out of tissues into the blood. There, it is actively taken up by blood platelets, which store it. When the platelets bind to a clot, they disgorge serotonin, where it serves as a vasoconstrictor and helps to regulate hemostasis and blood clotting. Serotonin also is a growth factor for some types of cells, which may give it a role in wound healing.

Serotonin is eventually metabolized to 5-HIAA by the liver, and excreted by the kidneys. One type of tumor, called carcinoid, sometimes secretes large amounts of serotonin into the blood, which causes various forms of the carcinoid syndrome of flushing, diarrhea, and heart problems. Due to serotonin's growth promoting effect on cardiac myocytes, persons with serotinin-secreting carcinoid

121

may suffer a right heart (tricuspid) valve disease syndrome, caused by proliferation of myocytes onto the valve.

Glutamate is the most abundant excitatory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate nervous system. At chemical synapses, glutamate is stored in vesicles. Nerve impulses trigger release of glutamate from the pre-synaptic cell. In the opposing post-synaptic cell, glutamate receptors, such as the NMDA receptor, bind glutamate and are activated. Because of its role in synaptic plasticity, glutamate is involved in cognitive functions like learning and memory in the brain.

CRANIAL NERVES

Cranial nerves are nerves that emerge directly from the brain stem, in contrast to spinal nerves which emerge from segments of the spinal cord. There are 12 pairs cranial nerves emerging from the brain, and these are:

PROGNOSIS GOOD FAIR POOR Onset of the illness ☻ JUSTIFICATION Bob first experiences the signs and symptoms of schizophrenia when he was 18 years old and now he is 40 years old. The first signs that Bob showed was when he ate feces and since then people who are close to him noticed that he has illogical speech and flight of ideas. It was until after two months, November 1987 that they decided to bring Bob to the hospital for check-up when Bob’s tongue shrunk. The onset of illness was poor since the family waited that the situation of Bob worsened and did not immediately seek medical advice immediately when there was changes in his behavior like when he ate stool and showed illogical speech and flight of ideas. Duration of illness ☻ The client has been diagnosed with schizophrenia catatonic 22 years ago. The patient went to the Davao Medical Hospital for his third admission last January 19, 2010 and was diagnosed with schizophrenia undifferentiated. As we can see, the duration of illness has been very long since it was years ago since he was mentally sick thus rating him with poor prognosis.

176

Precipitating factors

Intake of drugs, substances or chemicals which increase levels of dopamine and developmental factors are the present precipitating factors seen in Bob. The proponents rated this area as poor since Bob is abusing substances like marijuana, alcohol, cigarette and soft drinks. In his development, Bob developed mistrust, shame and doubt, guilt,

inferiority, role confusion, and isolation which rated him poor. Mood and Affect ☻ During the interview, Bob has appropriate mood and affect therefore rating him with good prognosis. Family Support ☻ During the interview the mother and the sister-inlaw was with the patient. As the interview progresses the student nurses observed that the family is supporting the patient. The patient is receiving appropriate family support since his family is doing all they can to help him recover. They are helping him financially as well as emotionally. The family understood what he is undergoing and giving him the support he need for his recovery. Willingness to take medications and treatment ☻ Bob was brought to the hospital for check-up because he demanded to his parents saying that something is wrong with him. Bob submits himself properly to the medication without missing any single dose. He may be taking the proper regimen, however, he is not listening to the advice of the doctor to stop alcohol, smoking, taking marijuana and even drinking soft drinks. For a person to be treated he must not only take the drugs prescribed but also to stop things that are contraindicated for 177

him for his treatment. Because of this, Bob was rated with prognosis with the willingness to take the medication and treatment. Depressive features ☻ During the interview, the patient does not show any depressive features. Bob knew that something is wrong with him and he need medical attention. Even though he is aware that something is wrong with him, he is still not depressed with this fact. He didn’t finish college but he is not depressed with this fact. Not getting the things he wants won’t make him depress but instead, Bob goes wild and becomes hostile. Computation:  Poor: (3*1)/7  Fair: (1*2)/7  Good: (3*3)/7 Total 3 1 3 Total: General Prognosis: 1-1.6 = POOR 2.00 = 3/7 = 2/7 = 9/7

1.7-2.3 = FAIR 2.4-3.0 = GOOD

Rationale for Fair Prognosis: Bob has a fair prognosis therefore he has small chance, according to the calculation, of recovering from his illness. The onset of illness was 22 years ago. He was not immediately brought to the hospital but they waited 2 months and decided to bring him to the hospital because of shrinking of his tongue and he demanded so. The duration of illness is long since it was last November 1987 that he was first diagnosed of Catatonic Schizophrenia and just this last January 19, 2010 that he was diagnosed of Schizophrenia undifferentiated. He also abused many substances like

178

marijuana, alcohol, cigarette and soft drinks. And during his development, he developed mistrust, shame and doubt, guilt, inferiority, role confusion, and isolation which rated him poor. In addition to that, he didn’t listen to the advice of the doctor to stop alcohol, smoking, taking marijuana and drinking soft drinks. However, he submits himself to the regimen, taking the medications promptly even going to the hospital every month for his medication. Furthermore, during the interview, Bob has appropriate mood and affect therefore rating him with good prognosis. He has good family support as evidenced by the support of his mother and sister-in-law while he is in the hospital. His father is supporting him financially but is not able to go with him because of his work back in Agusan. The family understood what he is undergoing and giving him the support he need for his recovery. Lastly, the patient does not show any depressive features. Bob knew that something is wrong with him and he need medical attention. Even though he is aware that something is wrong with him, he is still not depressed with this fact. He didn’t finish college but he is not depressed with this fact. Not getting the things he wants won’t make him depress but instead, Bob goes wild and becomes hostile.

179

RECOMMENDATION The group 1 of section 3H would like to recommend the following:

To the patient: He is advised to take part in complying with the treatment; the medication and therapeutic regimen designed for his rehabilitation. He should realize the importance of complying with his medication and the benefits this practice would bring to the improvement of his well-being.

To the patient’s family: The patient’s family plays an important role in the patient’s mental illness and recovery. The family should make themselves physically present so that the patient would feel their support and concern. They are encouraged to continue interacting with the patient so that ideas of violence towards self and others will be diverted. In addition, it is of prime importance that they are oriented and educated regarding the patient’s mental illness so that they will understand him even better and assist him in his daily activities.

To the Ateneo de Davao University- College of Nursing: The faculty and staff are encouraged to continue improving the standards of the Ateneo Nursing Curriculum by providing quality education to students. Also they, themselves, must be equipped with the knowledge and skill that they may impart to student nurses. They are challenged to not just teach but impart to us as well nursing experiences that we may apply in the course of caring for our future patients.

180

To the Davao Mental Hospital: The group recommends that they should improve their facilities in treating the mentally-ill patients, because still they deserve due treatment. The patients must be kept clean, well-fed, and have mattresses to sleep on. The hospital must provide a safe and therapeutic environment to the patients and staff. Address the needs of each patient by first assessing the level of severity of the patient’s condition; let every patient be submitted for history and physical examination and be evaluated by a psychiatrist, so that appropriate care is rendered to them. The proponents recommend that the psychiatric team would work together in order to provide mental health care service that promotes rehabilitation of the patient. Also they are recommended to know the latest trends in improving therapeutic communication between them and the patients.

To the student nurses: Even if nursing students find it difficult to establish therapeutic relationships with mentallyill patients because of the relatively short time spent in the clinical area, still we have to render amounts of effort, time and trust to our patients; and improve our therapeutic technique in caring for our patients; that we may play a part in the rehabilitation of our mentally-ill patients.

181

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This study will be a significant undertaking in depth understanding the reason behind our subject’s mental illness. This study will also be beneficial to the students and clinical instructors in College of Nursing in making use of different concepts taught inside the classroom related to psychiatric nursing.

This case study will give us better understanding regarding mentally-ill patients; provide recommendations on how to deal with them in the future. It will give us better grasp why certain people experience being mentally unstable by looking deeper into the history, physiology, brain chemistry; development of physical, emotional and cognitive; and social relations of the patient.

Some of the mentally ill patients remain undiagnosed and untreated because they never sought medical attention due to old stigmas and societal attitudes towards mental illness. Stigmas results in the social exclusion of people with a mental illness and is detrimental to the part of the family. Moreover, this study will be helpful to aid the family in caring their mentally-ill member; giving them more understanding, acceptance, and how to deal with the illness and issues concerning it.

APPENDICES DIAGNOSTIC STATISTICAL MANUAL CRITERIA FOR DIFFRENTIAL DIAGNOSIS

Schizophrenia is one of a cluster of related psychotic brain disorders. It is a combination of disordered thinking, perceptual disturbances, behavioral abnormalities, affective disruptions and impaired social competency. The diagnosis of a particular subtype of schizophrenia is based on the clinical picture that occasioned the most recent evaluation or admission to clinical care and may therefore change over time. They are defined by their symptomatology. The disorder lasts for at least 6 months and includes at least one month of the active phase symptoms namely two or more of the following: hallucinations, disorganized speech, catatonic behavior, negative symptoms). The subtypes are:

295.30 Paranoid Type 295.10 Disorganized Type 295.20 Catatonic Type 295.90 Undifferentiated Type 295.60 Residual Type

Diagnostic Criteria for Schizophrenia G. Characteristic symptoms. Two or more of the following, each present for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period (or less if successfully treated): (6) delusions (7) hallucinations (8) disorganized speech (e.g. frequent derailment or incoherence) (9) grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior (10) negative symptoms (i.e. affective flattening, alogia or avolition)

Only one Criterion A symptom is required if delusions are bizarre or hallucinations consist of a voice keeping up a running commentary on the person’s behavior or thoughts, or two or more voices conversing with each other. 183

H. Social/occupational dysfunction. For a significant portion of the time since the onset of the disturbance, one or more major areas of functioning such as work, interpersonal relations, or selfcare are markedly below the level achieved prior to the onset (or when the onset is in childhood or adolescence, failure to achieve expected level of interpersonal, academic, or occupational achievement) I. Duration Continuous signs of the disturbance persist for at least 6 months. This 6month period must include at least 1 month of symptoms (or less if successfully treated) that meet Criterion A (i.e. active-phase symptoms) and may include periods of prodromal or residual symptoms. During these prodromal or residual periods the signs of the disturbance may be manifested by only negative symptoms or two or more symptoms listed in Criterion A present in attenuated form (e.g. odd beliefs, unusual perceptual experiences.) J. Schizoaffective and Mood Disorder exclusion: Schizoaffective Disorder and Mood Disorder with Psychotic Features have been ruled out because either (1) no Major Depressive, Manic, Or Mixed Episodes have occurred concurrently with the active-phase symptoms; or (2) if mood episodes have occurred during active-phase symptoms, their total duration has been brief relative to the duration of the active and residual periods. K. Substance/general medical condition exclusion: The disturbance is not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g. a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition L. Relationship to a Pervasive Developmental Disorder: If there is a history of Autistic Disorder or another Pervasive Developmental Disorder, the additional diagnosis of Schizophrenia is made only if prominent delusions or hallucinations are also present for at least a month (or less if successfully treated.

Substance-Induced Psychotic Disorder 191

The essential features of Substance-Induced Psychotic Disorder are prominent hallucinations or delusions that are judged to be due to the direct physiological effects of a substance. Hallucinations that the individual realizes are substance induced are not included here and instead would be diagnosed as Substance Intoxication or Substance Withdrawal with accompanying specifier With Perceptual Disturbances. The disturbance must not be better accounted for by a Psychotic Disorder that is not substance induced. The diagnosis is not made if the psychotic symptoms occur only during the course of delirium. Diagnostic criteria for Substance-Induced Psychotic Disorder A. Prominent hallucinations or delusions. Note: Do not include hallucinations if the person has insight that they are substance induced B. There is evidence from the history, physical examination, or laboratory findings of either (1) or (2): 1. the symptoms of Criterion A developed during or within a month of, Substance intoxication or Withdrawal 2.

Evidence that the symptoms are better accounted for by a Psychotic Disorder that is not a substance induced might include the following: the symptoms precede the onset of the substance use (or medication use); the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time (e.g., about a month) after the cessation of acute withdrawal or severe intoxication, or are substantially in excess of what would be expected given the type or amount of the substance used or the duration of use; or there is other evidence that suggests the existence of an independent non-substance –induced Psychotic Disorder (e.g., a history of recurrent non-substance related episodes. D. The disturbance does not occur exclusively during the course of delirium.

Note: This diagnosis should be made instead of a diagnosis of Substance intoxication or Substance Withdrawal only when the symptoms are in excess of those usually associated with the intoxication or withdrawal syndrome and when the symptoms are sufficiently severe to warrant independent clinical attention. 192
