online medical dictionary

While we try to make sure that all the difficult terms are defined in each writeup, inevitably some may still be hard to understand. Here is a good online, searchable medical dictionary put on by pubmed that may help alleviate some problems with understanding the vocabulary you may encounter while looking at some of these articles. Let us know if this is helpful...

To whom it may concern,

I am 19 years old and believe my Mother has scizophrenia/Multible personalities. I believe this as she was abused very badly as a young child and had a dramatic early life experience.
Her attitude changes all the time, i find she is constantly changing her voice mail on her phone. Her voices change all the time and the way she acts.
One day she might be carm and relaxed and easy to talk to. Next day i find she will be trying to play a roll of someone else, which i just dont understand. She has moments where she will yell at her dog for no reason, like go right off the roof.
She seeks help from a psycologest weekly, but i am not sure what for. Though she is not taking any medication and even though i only get to see her once a year, i find it is very hard to have a mother and daughter relationship over the phone. It is a real nightmare.

Please if you can send me some information or advice on what i can do or how i can study on the condiction i feel she has.

Thank you

Kind regards Melissa

It sounds like you have a lot of questions. One place for you to ask those questions is on the general schizophrenia message boards that are linked from the main webpage.

Good luck,
