The guinness guy tucson sannoussi Why did you want to create this. I had. I've always wanted to write a book about my experiences with psychosis but i kind of felt that it would have more to offer offers a book if i listed the help of a co author. He was a professional in mental health. An augment stephen a conference on and it was about schools. New routes tibet to catholic schizophrenia. anti newell basket sphere. Its area of expertise. Less ask him. let's ask him and he was for. And so we started writing this book together But just felt the kind of just mike spirit. Just the expert by experience will lived experience on and maybe wouldn't hold water. I thought that it would be much better. Talbot's that too. What about east stephen so obvious similar oversee from a professional perspective. So as okay said. I have kind of specialized in researching schizophrenia for twenty five years and look after any large number of patients with illness and other and had wanted to write a book that would be accessible to them and to a wider audience. But also one. That wouldn't be too dry rocket dynamic and around about the time. I'm i'm erica. I also told by various agents event. If i wanted to write a book like this. I definitely need to get Lots of people stories in it so lots of people with lived experience contributing Beating erica was a very happy coincidence and from there took us a while to get going but i think we broke during two eighteen and then finished off in nineteen before publishing of this year. And who would you say that. It's forty anyone with schizophrenia. And anyone is interested in like working schizophrenia. Or care and put some moments schizophrenia. Like a friend or a loved one. Yeah i think. I anyone who's got Or any other type of psychotic illness. This a few different types of psychotic illness Bipolar disorder for example People often have psychotic symptoms of that and other conditions. That are less common so anyone kinds of problems. Anyone looking off to them girlfriend. Mother father sister brother hawks would also. Perhaps anyone is our cassette. Just interested in knowing a bit more about psychosis genuine schizophrenia in particular so one of the psychiatry senior trainees kindly read the book. drafts and coming to the drafts to improve the readability. Apparently who has no connection health connection was he apparently likes reading the extent. For at least it's it's worked. It's an interesting one for me. Because i was now hundred solder and i had psychosis so it would have been lucky to have a ham but like the i think when i i have my my first bit of mania because the thing is it happens and then you get back to normal source of reading. I what's happened to. Why as happened what to do next radius. That's almost as bad as well as just happened in a way. That kind of Mystery around it. Will this fair around it. You're right to tell us a bit about your experiences again our. We've always had you on the poco before that was a while ago. now so you're right to tell we re to go right to tell listeners about your experiences psychosis first episode. Was rhinos on about twenty two Fourteen hours say it's been about two decades of living with psychosis Something i can manage quite well with medication and different therapies But it can be quite terrifying when you have a psychotic episode and there's definitely more at the start of the illness later on and i think the police spying on me. I think i've committed really henious cry and all much like a burglary or you know so of a monkey or something really say area slight blowing up canary war types areas And i just really believe. It's true. And i might start to think the The songs i hear on the radio have been written especially for me to kind of condemn more behavior or the tv might be talking to me in subliminal messages and is terrifying united states ironic to me how much fear or inspire notice when they hear a half psychosis when the reality is you know. I'm just terrified myself. Really in a housebound when it's happening. I mean tim's of my sort of experience it was so had delusions and it was. It wasn't really terrifying at the time. But i think the tara finding soon afterwards realizing that you know. I wasn't suv. No-one things like to go back to normal and is interesting. You said what you're saying about things on the tv and stuff. Because i remember having exactly the same thing in one of my Monica facilities where young. I saw the people on the radio with talking to me. You know not in the normal way of business directly And being able to control the weather and things like that. How have you felt supervising this. And what have you learned from it In terms of well the total pig we spent a really authority experience. Writing it down A blunt law. Like when i go and see a psychiatrist on my only have a fifteen minutes with With my psychiatrist so little of unanswered questions. I've i've always had at the back of my mind That i wouldn't necessarily have the time to go through with my psychiatrist. So this is kind of been like you know well as questions like causes and you know Things like cannabis. you know. it's kind of helped me sort through my in history of what my of course my psychosis And just of like you know different medications in different types of diagnosis and white take so long to arrive at one diagnosis and how they might. Kind of change over time different Old questions. I might have had is kind of addressed some of those. Yeah because it does take time. Doesn't it it was not to twenty four. So then i have my first minute kept say when i was about seventeen eighteen years. If kind of certifying that you've gone a minded not really knowing will the issue as i think the erica said there are quite a lot in the book and is one of the review is set. It's a lot into back to two pages but hopefully a relatively way all those sorts of questions that people might have a while. What's the value dogmas in. The first place was what is the diagnosis mean. Will the cools is will know of these different conditions and most importantly what what what are all the treatments about the pros and cons of drugs in general in different drugs in particular. What are all the kinds of things that people with psychosis of one fulmer. Another might benefit from there. There's a lot of different things in there. I think it's one of the publisher said when she read through a draft on the at the very least books going to give people an overview of the sorts of things that they might be able to benefit from that they may not appeal to them but my appeals them. they may be having had maybe haven't been offered the are available if they may.

"Alex do they know. what causes it. what call what is the actual action of the candy and see on no row. so we yes so are as the as the cannabis advocates will tell you we have something called the endo cannabinoid system there are two main class of receptors the CB one and CB two receptors. receptors are in our brain mainly the CB two receptors are elsewhere and teach see which is the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis of sex both are are CD DVD which you're you know people may have heard a lot about affects mainly the CB two receptor doesn't bond with the C. B. one receptor anyway it turns out that when you when you use cannabis when you when you use T. H. C. you know they they teach the bonds with the C. B. one receptor in your brain and it causes all these are facts that that we all know about right it it it distorts our perception of time it makes you use for it it do so seats you a little bit it sensitize you to surf music you know it's an aphrodisiac for many people there's there's lots of people used to eat it makes them feel good for a lot of people it even in low doses it seems to have perhaps reduce anxiety in the short term but you get a rebound effect that and for for some people while fairly large number of people medium to high doses of THC and for some people really want us to increase your kernel. and you know one of the really interesting thing that I want to see you know over the over the last fifty or seventy five years really even after prohibition it was we started to to hear from people who have problems with alcohol right we we prohibited alcohol it you know I didn't really work we want to legalize it again and then after that AA started after that you know there's a famous book called the lost weekend it came out and people who were alcoholics started to talk about why they were alcoholics and what the drug it for them and it wasn't just you know one just a moral crusade was was let's talk about what this drug does and how it feels and we haven't really gotten that with cannabis we the only you know the only people talk about our people at least at this point you know really like it and some of those people seem to be adequate which to me from the outside the user Tom and they talk you know it may be it seems to be the focus of their lives healthy way but they but they haven't we we don't have the person who's written the book it says I had profit leases are lined all at the I really have problems with this drug and here's why I continue to use it so you know I've heard from some of those people in it since my book came out to tell your children came out but we haven't gotten that memoirs so I think there's a you know I think and as the use of this drug grows and it is continuing to grow in the United States the levels really that we've never seen in this country Lisa turtle high potency stuff I think we're gonna get back. so why you can't say that everyone. this one's canvases gonna become schizophrenic will certainly would you say that anyone who is schizophrenic and I have a user of Canada's out to stop and see what happens yes absolutely any and it goes beyond that I mean any psychotic would tell you that any any any decent psychiatrist would would tell you that they it's quite clear that if you if you have a diagnosed severe mental illness and you use cannabis your outcomes are much worse you're much more likely be hospitalized again you're you're you're you're much more likely to commit violence and if you don't use cannabis for people have been known mental illness is a a and I'm not talking about what the questions are you get about the severe psychotic illnesses bipolar disorder or psychosis depression psychosis schizophrenia if you have one of those things you should absolutely not be using the structure and barley unfortunately those people tend to be very heavy users there they they tend to be heavy drug users in general and cannabis is the drug be used the most and the industry says their self medicating and the question is I mean and it's a very obvious question if their self medicating how come there outcomes are so much worse than the people who don't. here's another a you know a warning that the that the industry Walmart you know when I proposes a few months ago the drug policy alliance which is that you know which is our goal group that supports full legalization I said how about a warning to people if you have a you know if you have a first degree relative if your mother or father or brother or sister you know has a psychotic disorder you shouldn't use this how about a warning that if you ever have wound up in the hospital in the ER after using you certainly shouldn't use this and and they wouldn't say Hey these are good ideas let's talk about these warning what state they don't wanna with knowledge this as a problem and I think the reason is if you if you draw a line of drugs legal and illegal you talk research societal acceptance of I I think we all agree that on one and would be caffeine everyone you know everyone agrees to caffeine is a you know it's a pretty safe drug almost al Lowe tons and tons of people use it and as luck of caffeine is an addictive you can certainly get are going to caffeine withdrawal it's because you know caffeine is a relatively mild stimulant and that somewhere in the middle you have something like cocaine you know cocaine is not a you know a lot of people don't like cocaine cocaine is you know easy use is a pretty marginal drug at this point but it but it's not it's not PC P. right so PC P. would be a drug that is the box nobody nobody would admit to using TCP anyway if you if you do that if you do that and opiates are also you know there sort of in the middle with cocaine probably if you do that if you draw that Sir diagonal lines with caffeine on one hand and PCP on the other end and you can you draw a line of drugs propensity to cause psychosis and severe mental illness those two lines will stack up almost exactly so are you know caffeine tobacco alcohol then in the middle you have sort of a strong stimulants cocaine methamphetamine the opioids. and at the higher you have Sir PCP and Alice the. the marijuana really belong in terms of I'm not talking about it over all negativity from talking about specifically about its propensity to cause psychosis belongs at the at the high end of that spectrum. I'd be curious to know how many. mass shooters are ever had a lot of caffeine before this year in Gaza I think I'm serious caffeine may be under under estimated because of bad behavior because it you know how we can make you. crabby yeah I know it doesn't mean that doesn't mean that it doesn't have an effect on violent behavior that's just so I know several to general can calls on his no question which is our go back for one second if so the city is so the the industry spent a lot of time saying you know marijuana really six but if you if if they're going to admit that it can cause psychosis which is so scared for people then then that they know they know that's going to affect the public perception of the great and that's why they need me and that's why he tell your children that they cannot stand be or the book okay you know it's a couple more minutes before this next break can we use that meant those minister go back to the actual action of it we talked about that and I can have an endo cannabinoid system the THC but they're kind of tell that from my understanding of the actual action that causes the psychosis. so okay so this is a this is a really complicated interesting issue psychiatrist has spent a set a hundred years trying to figure out cycles this really comes to you know it cuts the heart of what consciousness is how the brain perceives reality and even now if you give somebody you know with psychosis of brain scans yeah you can point to serve small changes in the structure of their brain but but this is not a disease you can diagnose that way AP whether or not the person as a possible cannabis use are you you can only diagnose psychosis clinically so the person either tells you I'm hearing voices I'm having a loose connection I'm having these going off I can't control or the person behaves in such a way that it's obvious that they are having this problem and by the way you know this is a lot of what psychiatrists get trained to do especially psychiatrist like my wife you know is the person pretending K. U. dilution all or is here she actually to loose on it and and they get they get very skilled it's pretty hard to for psychiatrists it's been trained so so what I'm trying to say really is that is it if you're gonna ask me how C. B. D. how affecting the C. B. the this is the CD research the end of cannabinoid receptors the C. B. one receptors in the brain causes psychosis I will tell you we don't know when I'm going to just pause here because we have to break and hopefully we can pick up exactly where we left off I hope you can I may not be able to remember so hopefully you can WBZ Boston's news radio.
