April Burrell: Treat Lupus, Cure Schizophrenia

Postby Copy_Cat » Sun Jun 04, 2023 6:50 pm

"The awakening of April - and the successful treatment of other people with similar conditions - now stand to transform care for some of psychiatry's sickest patients, many of whom are languishing [being tortured] in mental institutions.

Researchers working with the New York State mental healthcare system have identified about 200 patients with autoimmune diseases, some institutionalized for years, who may be helped by the discovery."


"Markx ordered a full workup on April, and test results showed she also had lupus, an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks various body organs. Could it have attacked April's brain? April underwent a serious regimen of chemotherapy designed to treat lupus, in which she was bombarded with medications once a month for six months. By the time her treatment was completed, she had returned to reality, reconnected with her family, and was discharged from the psychiatric hospital to a rehabilitation center. "
I survived psychiatry.

That's pretty wild, but unsurprising to me also. Because PANDAS. Although PANDAS is seen as a childhood thing, it's not been lost on me that my own mental issues seemed to appear after I had had a mysterious infection at a young age. At least, I don't recall obsessions and anxiety before it. So this isn't surprising, but it is very hopeful news for folks with serious issues like April.
