Description

This book describes Paranoid Personality Disorder, Diagnosis and Treatment and Related Diseases
“Anyone not paranoid in this world must be crazy
Speaking of paranoia, it's true that I do not know exactly who my enemies are.
But that of course is exactly why I'm paranoid.”
― Edward Abbey
Paranoid personality disorder (PPD) is a mental disorder in which a person has a long-term pattern of extreme distrust and suspicion of others.
People with paranoid personalities rarely confide in others, and tend to misconstrue harmless comments and behavior as malicious
The person does not have an advanced psychotic disorder, such as schizophrenia.
People with the disorder are more likely to have a relative with schizophrenia, indicating there could be a link between the two disorders.
People with a paranoid personality disorder are normally not able to admit their own negative feelings toward others but do not normally lose touch with reality.
They will not confide in people, even if they prove reliable, for fear of being exploited or betrayed
The precise cause of paranoid personality disorder is not known.
Doctors believe that a combination of biological and environmental factors can lead to paranoid personality disorder.
It seems to be more frequent in families with psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia and delusional disorder, which indicates that genes may be involved.
Other factors may have a part as well.
PPD appears to be more frequent in men.
Early childhood trauma may be a factor that contributes to PPD.
Paranoid personality disorder can occur from negative childhood experiences caused by a threatening domestic environment.
It is triggered by excessive and unfounded parental rage and condescending parental influence that cause profound childhood insecurities
Symptoms
People with PPD are very distrustful of other people.
As a result, their social lives are severely limited.
They often believe that they are in danger and look for proof to support their suspicions.
They have difficulty seeing that their distrust is out of proportion to their environment.
A mnemonic to symptoms of PPD is GET FACT:
Grudges held for long period
Exploitation expected
Trustworthiness of others doubted
Fidelity of sexual partner questioned
Attack on character are perceived
Confides in others rarely
Threatening meanings read into events
One of the main differences between paranoid personality disorder and schizophrenia is that hallucination is not a normal feature of paranoid personality disorder
Diagnosis
The doctor will ask the patient about the symptoms and history.
The mental health professional will do a comprehensive appraisal.
Treatment
The treatment is difficult because people with PPD are often very distrustful of doctors.
If treatment is received, talk therapy and medicines can often be successful.
The treatment for PPD can be very effective.
Psychotherapy is the most capable method of treatment for paranoid personality disorder:
1.Help the individual learn how to cope with the disorder
2.Learn how to communicate with others in social situations
3.Help reduce feelings of paranoia
Medicines can also be helpful, particularly if the person with PPD has other linked disorders such as depression or anxiety disorder:
1.Antidepressants for depression
2.Benzodiazepines for anxiety
3.Antipsychotics for the paranoia
Combining medication with talk therapy or psychotherapy can be very effective
Medicines are advised to be given for a short period because the patient can be distrustful of them after some time.
Psychotherapy should be continued for life because there is no cure for this illness
Properly treated the patient can even hold a job.

Introduction

I have been writing medical articles for my blog: http://kennethkee.blogspot.com (A Simple Guide to Medical Disorder) for the benefit of my patients since 2007.

My purpose in writing these simple guides was for the health education of my patients.

Health Education was also my dissertation for my Ph.D (Healthcare Administration).

I then wrote an autobiolographical account of his journey as a medical student to family doctor on his other blog: http://afamilydoctorstale.blogspot.com.

This autobiolographical account A Family Doctor’s Tale was combined with my early A Simple Guide to Medical Disorders into a new Wordpress Blog A Family Doctor’s Tale on http://kenkee481.wordpress.com.

From which many free articles from the blog was taken and put together into 800 eBooks.

Some people have complained that the simple guides are too simple.

For their information they are made simple in order to educate the patients.

The later books go into more details of medical disorders.

The first chapter is always from my earlier blogs which unfortunately tends to have typos and spelling mistakes.

Since 2013, I have tried to improve my spelling and writing.

As I tried to bring the patient the latest information about a disorder or illness by reading the latest journals both online and offline, I find that I am learning more and improving on my own medical knowledge in diagnosis and treatment for my patients.

Just by writing all these simple guides I find that I have learned a lot from your reviews (good or bad), criticism and advice.

I am sorry for the repetitions in these simple guides as the second chapters onwards have new information as compared to my first chapter taken from my blog.

I also find repetition definitely help me and maybe some readers to remember the facts in the books more easily.

I apologize if these repetitions are irritating to some readers.

Paranoid personality disorder

"Anyone not paranoid in this world must be crazy

Speaking of paranoia, it's true that I do not know exactly who my enemies are.

But that of course is exactly why I'm paranoid."

― Edward Abbey

What is paranoid personality disorder?

Paranoid personality disorder (PPD) is a mental disorder in which a person has a long-term pattern of extreme distrust and suspicion of others.

People with paranoid personalities rarely confide in others, and tend to misconstrue harmless comments and behavior as malicious

The person does not have an advanced psychotic disorder, such as schizophrenia.

People with the disorder are more likely to have a relative with schizophrenia, indicating there could be a link between the two disorders.

The word personality depicts deeply ingrained patterns of behavior and the manner in which individuals see, relate to, and think about themselves and their world.

Personality traits are conspicuous features of personality and are not necessarily pathological, even though certain styles of personality traits may cause interpersonal problems.

Personality disorders are continuing patterns of inner experience and behavior that move away markedly from the expectations of a patient's culture.

They must be rigid, inflexible, and maladaptive and of adequate severity to cause significant impairment in functioning or internal distress.
