How ironic (and institutionally endemic) that a psychologists opinion should be slighted by the idea that Lori experienced a liberating sense of respite and remission during a period on medication.
That's because there's an underlying neurological process taking place that the language centres of the brain can't modify when someones psychotic. In fact those very areas are affected by the process itself resulting in the symptomatic presentation of expressive language deficits and thought disorder.
You may not like but to date no 'talking therapy' has had any effective utility among the acutely psychotic patient group.
Its great when they've stabilised and are able to restore a degree of retentive and expressive communication, but in many cases its medication which gets them there in the shortest time period, along with a reduction in the distress so typically associated with an individual experiencing such chaotic shifts in neurological activity.
All that aside, take Lori's account on its a fantastic and necessary insight from someone who knows and is able to evoke the inner-world of this condition.
