So, I cleaned up and organized, (expanded/explained where necessary) the sad little Camden Sophomores (1st generation) List, and I must say its looking pretty printable. Juniors are forthcoming, once we make up the other 20 or so of them.

I have a shitload of research on Schizophrenia, however I decided instead of posting all 19 pages, I would just post the five on Schizoaffectivity, which is what I have indeed diagnosed Mace with. The further research explains the rehab experience for those with shizophrenia, the medicines that are used against the disease etc. But this is an annotated version of just Shizoaffective criteria. Its quite fascinating.

Diagnostic Criteria Schizoaffective
A. An uninterrupted period of illness during which, at some time, there is either (1) a Major Depressive Episode, (2) a Manic Episode, or (3) a Mixed Episode concurrent with symptoms that meet (4) Criterion A for Schizophrenia.
Citerion A for Schizophrenia includes both Major Depressive Episodes, and Manic Episodes (known as Mixed Episodes, yes, paragraph number 3) and is what Mace obviously suffers from. You will see soon, I'm just telling you that now so you know that it is possible for Mace to fall under all 4 catagories.

Note: The Major Depressive Episode must include depressed mood.
I dont see why they even bother with that...

(1) Criteria for Major Depressive Episode

* Five (or more) of the following symptoms have been present during the same 2-week period and represent a change from previous functioning; at least one of the symptoms is either (1) depressed mood or (2) loss of interest or pleasure.

Note: Do not include symptoms that are clearly due to a general medical condition, or mood-incongruent delusions or hallucinations.

One of the reasons perhaps Mace isnt schizoaffective...the doctors can point this out, how mace seems too be thrown in his moods from D'mitri. But I would be different as D'mitri is his conscience...hmmm....besides, is Mace depressed anyway? Probably.

1. depressed mood most of the day, nearly every day, as indicated by either subjective report (e.g., feels sad or empty) or observation made by others (e.g., appears tearful). Note: In children and adolescents, can be irritable mood.
Uh yeah, is Mace irritable? I forget...
2. markedly diminished interest or pleasure in all, or almost all, activities most of the day, nearly every day (as indicated by either subjective account or observation made by others)
there should be some pivotol point when Mace just says no to something he love, like that poor Prozac bubble and the butterflies. Maybe Debate, or a school play... It would be really sad if he decided he didnt want to be in Damn Yankees anymore, but he got over his 2 week depression just in time to still be the sexy devil

3. significant weight loss when not dieting or weight gain (e.g., a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month), or decrease or increase in appetite nearly every day. Note: In children, consider failure to make expected weight gains.
There is slight weight loss in fifth year which would be his depressive episodes, but whatever
4. insomnia or hypersomnia nearly every day
Check
5. Psychomotor agitation or retardation nearly every day (observable by others, not merely subjective feelings of restlessness or being slowed down)
How many times does Mace get impatient and restless?
6. fatigue or loss of energy nearly every day
7. feelings of worthlessness or excessive or inappropriate guilt (which may be delusional and due to D'mitri?) nearly every day (not merely self-reproach or guilt about being sick)
8. diminished ability to think or concentrate, or indecisiveness, nearly every day (either by subjective account or as observed by others)
9. recurrent thoughts of death (not just fear of dying), recurrent suicidal ideation without a specific plan, or a suicide attempt or a specific plan for committing suicide
certainly have that accounted for...Suicide attempt one, two, and three


* The symptoms do not meet criteria for a Mixed Episode
* The symptoms cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
* The symptoms are not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication) or a general medical condition (e.g., hypothyroidism).
* The symptoms are not better accounted for by Bereavement, i.e., after the loss of a loved one, the symptoms persist for longer than 2 months or are characterized by marked functional impairment, morbid preoccupation with worthlessness, suicidal ideation, psychotic symptoms, or psychomotor retardation.
However, it is more often to see Inappropriate affect (a condition in which the patient display inappropriate reactions to such an event (e.g., laughing hysterically over a loss).
WORD.

(2) Criteria for Manic Episode

* A distinct period of abnormally and persistently elevated, expansive, or irritable mood, lasting at least 1 week (or any duration if hospitalization is necessary).
can anyone say, Sixth year. I say I do. But Just wait for it...
* During the period of mood disturbance, three (or more) of the following symptoms have persisted (four if the mood is only irritable) and have been present to a significant degree:

1. inflated self-esteem or grandiosity
Oh yeah, that is certainly present. "God...you're so fucking hot..." and Mace proceeds to make out with his reflection
2. decreased need for sleep (e.g., feels rested after only 3 hours of sleep)
How many hours of sleep did Mace get in the junkie years? Maybe one, if added all up together
3. more talkative than usual or pressure to keep talking
I think the Camden Professors will vouch for that one
4. flight of ideas or subjective experience that thoughts are racing
Which i believe is just a round about way of saying his mind is crazy fast
5. distractibility (i.e., attention too easily drawn to unimportant or irrelevant external stimuli)
You mean...short attention span? Mace? Never..."Jesus Haden you're such a fucking nazi! Be prepared for a very lenthy haranguing session from me, because this just isnt mor- wait a minute, where did I put my cigarettes? I'm finding it hard to breath with out them, i swear Marbolo should be marketed as a breathing appart- Did you see where Christian went? I meant to ask him for money " Acacia comes walking in "Oh good I need a good f-" Slater comes in "Fucking God, Slater, what have I told you about walking in here with a shirt on? There is a strict dress code here, no clothing alowed. Let me help you with that...")
6. increase in goal-directed activity (either socially, at work or school, or sexually) or psychomotor agitation
Socially=Declans, Work and School=Competition with Ezra hence Cum Laude) Sexually=Look above, darlings
7. excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have a high potential for painful consequences (e.g., engaging in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments)
sex, drugs and rock and roll! Not just while a junkie, but in the summer of 6th too


* The mood disturbance is sufficiently severe to cause marked impairment in occupational functioning or in usual social activities or relationships with others, or to necessitate hospitalization to prevent harm to self or others, or there are psychotic features.
* The symptoms are not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication, or other treatment) or a general medical condition (e.g., hyperthyroidism).
His condition occured before the heroin


(3) Criteria for Mixed Episode

* The criteria are met both for a Manic Episode and for a Major Depressive Episode (except for duration) nearly every day during at least a 1-week period.
atleast one week, but obviously if its a condition you have, the episodes reoccur
* The mood disturbance is sufficiently severe to cause marked impairment in occupational functioning or in usual social activities or relationships with others, or to necessitate hospitalization to prevent harm to self or others, or there are psychotic features.
* The symptoms are not due to the direct physiological effects of a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication, or other treatment) or a general medical condition (e.g., hyperthyroidism).


(4) Criterion A of Schizophrenia

* Two (or more) of the following, each present for a significant portion of time during a 1-month period (or less if successfully treated):

* delusions
Defined: a persistent false belief held in the face of strong contradictory evidence, especially as a symptom of psychiatric disorder
* hallucinations
Defined: the perception of somebody or something that is not really there, often as a symptom of a psychiatric disorder or as a response to certain drugs
I added the definitions of the last two terms, because I thought the difference between the two hazy


* disorganized speech (e.g., frequent derailment or incoherence)
not so much, but it can be...actually, when he goes on his streams of consciousnesses, its quite hard to comprehend.
* grossly disorganized or catatonic behavior
can happen, certainly
* negative symptoms, i.e., affective flattening, alogia, or avolition


* Only one 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.
Ding Ding Ding, we have a winner...this allows Mace to move freely with all the symptoms that dont fit, because he has D'mitri, his talking fucking conscience that totally keeps up "a running commentary on the persons behavior or thoughts


B. During the same period of illness, there have been delusions or hallucinations for at least 2 weeks in the absence of prominent mood symptoms.
C. Symptoms that meet criteria for a mood episode are present for a substantial portion of the total duration of the active and residual periods of the illness.
D. 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.


Specify type:
* Bipolar Type: if the disturbance includes a Manic or a Mixed Episode (or a Manic or a Mixed Episode and Major Depressive Episodes)
This is what mace would be diagnosed as... Criterion A, Bipolar Type
* Depressive Type: if the disturbance only includes Major Depressive Episodes

thats all. Peace.

Hey love-

I dont know if you've gone into this already (you probably have, knowing you) but I just decided to research some music for the Locker Room, so I popped into Allmusic and got a four page list, exclusively from the 80's, of New Wave/House/Electronica/Dance music...which are all genres for the same music: GAY BAR MUSIC!

I dont know if I should post all the bands considering presumptious ol' me is aha appropriately presuming that you researched this nonesense, but I'll put it behind a lj-cut to make the post worth my time. Haha reading through the list, LFO makes an appearance which just makes me sigh. Ha.

Read more...Collapse )

And on other news, I thought of some pretty fab ideas for Cliche when driving back from WPI which is an experience that needs to be shared at sometime. Until then...

Hey, I was reviewing the years of the tracks on my livejournal, and I like you have come to the conclusion that it really, really sucks that the era of the Locker Room barely skims the core of techno/new wave music...I mean, all of my bestest songs to contribute to the Locker Room are 1989...not to mention the illfated release of the Selectors "On my Radio"...bummer.

So, I have a proposition...boost up the years just a bit. I know we love to have Second Generation in our time, but by the time we get anywhere with 2nd generation, we will have years on them, oui? I suggest we push First Generation to graduate in 91, i believe, to accomodate all the groovy music for Locker Room. Similar to what we did for Mace to have Halleluja Jeff Buckley style, which was also turn out quite nicely in this scenerio.

I know, its a dangerous thing, time, happy dumbledore hardcore mix, but I mean come on...isnt Erasure worth it? I say I do.

Alright, so input please? We need to discuss...

With all the fantastic characters we cram into Cliche, the creaters can blend into the crowd. We just cant compete with boys who make out with their reflection. Case and Point.

But we cant afford to be forgotten either.
