Question: How is schizophrenia different than bipolar disorder? I have states that are incredibly intense when I have nonstop racing thoughts that I can't stop. I found Zyprexa helps, which is also prescribed for schizophrenia. The closest term I heard is that I have mixed episodes; but it's truly terrifying; like a bad acid trip.

Answer: Schizophrenia doesn't involve mood swings. Practice one of the relaxation methods in sections 2, 11, 2c, or 2i, daily, and when needed, at Bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia are addressed in sections 10, and 40, at ezy build. (The following is a variant of EMDR therapy, which has been used successfully for those people suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, insomnia, and anxiety: it is easily learned, quick to use, yet can be very effective. It is easy to be dismissive of such a seemingly unusual technique, but give it a good tryout, for at least a few weeks, to see if it is effective in your case.). Prior to using either of the methods in the above paragraph, first sit comfortably, and take a deep breath. Then, without moving your head, move your eyes from the left, to the right, and back again, taking around a second to do so (say: "a thousand and one": this takes approximately a second). Repeat this procedure (without the words, although you can count, subvocally, if you like) 20 times. Then close your eyes and relax. Become aware of any tension or discomfort you feel. Then open your eyes, and take another deep breath, and repeat step one, closing your eyes, and relaxing afterwards, in the same manner. Then, repeat the procedure one last time. Some people may find that this is all they need do. With experience, you may find that you can practise this in public, with your eyes closed, which greatly widens the window of opportunity for its use, and avoids attracting unwanted attention. I have found that the 2 - 3 minutes spent using the EMDR markedly reduces distractions to the relaxation process, and is repaid many times over. Consider taking classes in t'ai chi, and/or yoga. Chamomile tea may help.
