Okay. Dark and let me tell you, Robert. You are a very very special and loved guests that you have the amazing boy thinking Robert a lot of us don't even know what schizophrenia is a lesbian. A family member or friend.

We know of someone you briefly explain what it is. Well, our lifetime and usually comes around 2022 years old. You people often hear voices and believe things to be true that are not true. Pretty much the space of difficult sure there's a lot of misconceptions about schizophrenia can share some of those certainly well. Perhaps you created. You incapable of controlling their behavior which is not always but it's always usually also wrapped around my you look at the population.

Amy is no more yet.

I just wanted to mention that because that's actually this is one of the most common misconception about real people doing the violence. You know it's not really their fault.

It's the environment it's the media anytime you see a show that has bipolar and it there always doing the extremely bipolar one, not a bipolar two and that's just just what we see and that's why we have people like Robert Weiss you know I'm one of those because I get you to get your mother that Dominic what you get these hallucinations and things that are so real. They're very visual and you really hear them in their soul real scummy letter necessary for person dealing with schizophrenia.

What is it that they need to Buy crackers for certainly help work around the person help the lone soldier combination report from family and friends, Mike. I love your altered network called fog. All very effective for many people barrier that needed island recovered God the Lord in my life only I now show for me.

My relationship with God the part of the cure is an amazing testimony. That's why you think that the money Robert because just the same way that you see things in the air and super convincing that's what I was thinking when pickpocket was things that were not true until I read the Saints battled Satan and I found it was a rocket like God is the one that guided me to that book.

Otherwise, I was believing things that were not true either schizophrenic right distinguish distinguish things like what's real and what's not, really, really not Mike, you got it figured out that you about other people. What about you thinking what I'm hearing is going on. Otherwise I don't know what are comfortable that all but I lean on God for. That's the only way I can do it to other $and you know like schizophrenia schizophrenics over there looking at me thereafter me and myself. It doesn't matter. God will protect me. Oh, you have enough God will provide you offered it up and the only thing that can cure even cancer. Amy Couto and this is the cure will continue talking in his book on conquering schizophrenia from the desk of a therapist and a survivor life can bring many difficult situations to mystic violence, addictions, poverty, and sexual abuse by your loved ones. The issue is not stay there, but to overcome all obstacles and show that with the love of God, your husband and your family. You can succeed.

Love is the answer. God is the key word reveals baby combos life, a warrior who didn't give up and achieve the dream of her life. You can get to know more about her at her story on God is the key or buying her book on you will find someone is welcome back is Amy capital and glories, and thanks for remember that you can listen to the show live here on Jamie That I post this on the superseding. I can imagine God guiding us tentatively seen density. We expect to make a couple coffee for you to wait for his morning show and we have had me seem like it's all again, you can't say don't stamp stressing. Don't be sad, don't just mean instead of leaking, he will cast and going at it helps me appreciate everything we are talking to Robert Francis is helping us reveal how to deal with schizophrenia, especially in these trying times from the unique perspective survivor and a therapist, Robert, earlier you mentioned your faith in God. How did you come to quiet your faith help you in coping with schizophrenia.

But along the way with you have a lot of trial and my burden. When you have peace with God you like don't matter so much the bigger picture in my problems are still all work like cure during your but just like you cope with it since I can live a normal life, which is great. All of course, the closer you get to God that someone you should expect Satan to bother you and try to get you to go back. That's only it's only normal. That's only natural. If not double like the same thing.

So about religious ideations kid is there is there a chance that they will experience something that's clinically so-called just allegations in your book all Congress gives a friend or from the therapies survivor making sense of, or so you you call clinically called mold multitude mold mold so experiences where I feel like I'm in touch with God quickly people not true. You know you favor what I've done. I open my.

The one thing that I have learned how you on my ideations. God your rational logic learn my own mind and not talk about really know people think all you might why my own mind.

You. I just learned not that people would equate with you is.

I was interacting schizophrenic because not long ago I went to convention this lady that wrote about.

She said when I was younger I danced with God was God really dear dancing with her really dance with God doesn't have a mental issue so just mean she's spiritual or close to God. That's the issue with having a mental think it's part of your illness or condition and no you could just have a good relationship with God. I mean I wouldn't I wouldn't think anything of it say great everybody experience and I know life is not easy.

It's the harder row that we handle it much better and it's it's if you are at peace. Robert number one just and everything comes together. I never had perfect timing. Now I do. Robert what living with schizophrenia taught you about life and people ask the question or no just very big questions are no trial on one of the most part and board people are against me if you like people are like people in my environment hostile when I offered up again funny because the players in my environment, but if I don't have peace with God that the people are hostile reception shift. People are kind again equate hardware and what would you tell the parents of newly diagnosed with schizophrenia or doesn't start each week, long way in the treatment around you know that you want her daughter recover go on a regular life and yelled so fast.

Robert and Robert Francis super interesting. The conquering schizophrenia from the desk of therapist, survivor, metaphysics, philosophy and theology amazing work of the puzzle where books are yes anywhere but either way it will be in will also put the information on the website as we do with THANK you so much Robert, thank you so when we will continue with the very special question are analogous about the helpful suggestions also are some questions and will do some are emerging lines in welcome back and things pertaining she is also here.

If anybody has a question about upon the lighting please give us a call 1866 34 through is moral of the story's here is some mistake, get me that's all right that's okay and I can't sing love about this song. I pursued this song when I was giving regret that Scott's suite we have seen it to keep Misty. He knows this better for that's the story no one is perfect.

We are all human's coronavirus has demonstrated he cannot be just equally and equally piece of the God who sees past our mistakes as long as we are always trying we can continue talking about 19 endemic in its effects because it's something that's really weighing heavily on the bus and down today we have our special guest, Dr. Parsley, that's so cool thank you so give her more background singers are but go go horse special guest you sick to cats.

While the school he wears many nice folks, please wash your hands frequently keep the social distance 6 feet away and try not to touch her face. I know it's hard sometimes that's how the virus is transmitted and if he did touch her face wash her hands. Whenever you can. Boris there's a lot of talk now about wearing masks in public what you think about. I think that is actually a good idea. The program is the dull news. The medical mosque because there really sconce right now and there needed for the medical personnel but you can always make yourself from some material like clothing or you can by probably one of those material mosques on Amazon or anywhere and then important think is to wash it every day and try again. The that your face you will know you have a mosque and don't think that because you have a mosque that's all you need not to get it because that might lower your guard and also the idea videos for you to give the social distancing anyway and washouts and also doesn't do not sell in case Amazon employees can't say what equate there is a way to teach paper towels and full day like folded folded folded and then pulled in the end to prevent use.

It's really cool you can make your own paper towel.

Two of them to spend and you don't get it, but it's possible I thought this morning a little sooner so so a lot of so Dr. Nicola what is me on the front of the treatment we inform well. There is a lot of study someone, you are no which medication can be used for for the call with 19 and there is no clear answer yet but there is the most promising medication that is coming up is the hydroxychloroquine which is a medication for malaria, but with everything on my license but not necessarily those studies actually show when you little grin reduced duration of the disease reduced admission during physical unit of short-term shortness of breath. It's the fever gets result foster and people don't need integration sold on the ventilator studies actually done in your unit but he still not approved by the FDA treatment.

Truth: I think going other countries like China and soak up some countries in Europe are becoming part of the protocol will publish a got the window when a crisis, and people are dying and if there dying and it's better than nothing will actually FDA approved it though. For both of use, special circumstance treatment for lighting I'm dying and I can't brace feeling horrible. I don't care if it's if you are not taking I agree. And also there is your own bodies. For those who have recovered from COBIT 19 and down within two weeks of symptom. There is a lot of save up to three people and you can infection in others.

That's a really good thing. Our trip as well is still under investigation of the clinical study to and then the needs to use her situation. The court would like to ask your doctor to go check about that will always call your doctor first time just brushed the yard because you think you have covered 19 yes, please don't go to the ER unless you are really feeling sick. The problem is I you know when you go to the ER. You can be around other sick people and he can get in, wash, take what you can get more sake seizing up the resources that are needed for people that are very sick. Unless you struggling to breathe machine to do it for you. Just take Tylenol rest. Let's liquid he well and you can call you. Okay but anyway you can call you. You.always call Dr. now that they can help you. It's really important because we all need to just be honest about things and realize that things can happen. Diseases can happen. Illnesses can happen in the important thing is that for alternate to pull together and realize nothing lasts forever and realize that God will provide an realize that everything's just momentarily.

In fact we don't live in a country, there will never be not enough things will always, the vaccines will come out ready treatments and I'm working on fixing already or yes there are very 11 companies from working single but this is a solution for this moment.

It's going to be available for mother's tuition program next year. They say here. I had, I highly doubt think it's much less it's needed much less timing. I don't think it's can it take that long, but Dr. helped care system working. Can we handle all these cases, virus actions is anything we should concern ourselves about well the healthcare system is working very sore thumb places that might be overrun, but then the government is preparing like with extra hospitals like the Army medical ships are helping out New York use one of those sensors for no so-called" and but it seems like there getting over the big no speaking of New York. I understand like Cuomo is asking for so many ventilators when there's a 50% chance of survival in a ventilator yet he's blocking life-saving medications, neglect that you know if they're given these medications. There's not too many ventilators need so that's my take on New York welder is so a lot of the physical models. The note, this is very true. Some statistical models say that the you New York, for example, when it only 10,000 ventilators which they do half. So while promoting 30,000 30,000 is for the whole United States physical model of adjuster okay will get the thing about this new medication that my sin hydrochloric Lorene hydroxychloroquine. Yeah, that one thing about it. Spikes that are on this coronavirus. It makes takes away their efficacy in the cell does not become so friendly to them. Cell won't accept so it actually stops the virus and its tracks.

It right.

That's what our effective uses the time of symptom is the time of fever and the person feels well. It's almost like a think what a 90% success rate for the trials that they've had so far. 99% super successful since it's working back questions when he 34 1866 life can bring many difficult situations, domestic violence, addictions, poverty, sexual abuse by your loved ones.

The issue is not stay there, but to overcome all obstacles and show that with the love of God, your husband and your family. You can succeed. Love is the answer. God is the key word reveals baby cobbles life, a warrior who didn't give up and achieve the dream of her life. You can get to know more about her at her story on God is the key or buying her book on's just will.

Thanks for tuning in writing any capital displayed with did 90 nights a week I was in my own for long enough, the dark side felt cold and empty and I was drowning in the night, until I felt God's touch and now I'm blinded by God's light which is taught me to love forget easier live in gratitude grow stronger soon about theirs have faith and courage help the world week until I sleep, even though the city schools and empty it doesn't matter. Others touch me because I'm blinded also to remind you about this we started. Let us know suggestions for a song that we can play on the show through our contact us page. God is the and if we play it and we will pick it up you will receive a $25 gift certificate talking with Boris. Let me about COBIT 1920 give you guys more helpful information.

If possible, they know you probably know so much already knows no that many will know that you know they were seen Boris that the higher risk individuals were those with underlying conditions and those that were older of older age and desires sinew to us that were discovering many things we thought that the young thoughts didn't have to worry about it.

The millennial's.

The kids have so many right, the virus party doesn't distinguish who gets infected the differences certain group of people are more prone to get severe complications and this is a people 60 people with serious conditions. Specifically reduce high blood pressure is the heart disease, and asthma.

Smoke immunosuppressed patients and the they're more likely to get more severe symptoms that require the secure unit integration and that is of the ventilators and what is the sentence because there's so many symptoms they can we know the regular symptoms are fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Other things like ice loss.

Now, loss of smell and there's gastrointestinal's changes as well. The company any symptoms basically related to any respiratory infection from sore throats, runny nose, headaches, muscle pains, the shortness of breath. The difficulty breathing Rio nausea variety of symptoms.

So if you have any idea that maybe you have a contact with the Carbonite infected patients.

Please call your primary care physician and there will be able to help you and you can have all kinds of weird sometimes.

I was sick not to long ago and I thought I covered 19 and it was a First Amendment sake. Also all winter and I just cheated myself like a cobra 19 person and I thought I was sick that we are to symptoms like rash that you can see on top of my lip dialing you hurt when I put lotion on my face back think I can only cure with Neosporin so you can get really weird sometimes and it was so surprising and sunny to me. I thought I was half of the 19 I'm probably dying. That's the dramatic me. Of course he didn't die.

And of course I came negative, 19 fever and I did feel pretty beat up right will so you might a paradoxical night and I can see someone else will.

Let's check you out there is the speaking about the there's the snow Available to check the immunity against Carbonite and so it is very interesting. You can your doctor in their office and also rollup and determines whether you have covered night getting the past there, whether you are immune so that this is becoming much more interesting is right now they have a test that will show the antibodies within the first few weeks that show up after you've recovered, which is the IGN and infection or doing infection dessert antibodies that can be picked up and up to a month, but the ones that are permanent are the IgG, with a test that picks up on both antibodies right there. Are there is no it's interesting because of the sergeants developing their supposed to determine whether you have the virus in your body. This weather have the immunity how your body reacts to some questions that you something I think is about cats and dog spread the disease.

No likely please don't gargles the book can be very harmful to you like some people are doing, but it's just very dangerous and you will not kill the virus mouthwash mouthwash in support of this can antibiotics kill the virus now because the virus nope no question the surgical you can tell he will detect everybody infected know because you don't need a favor for the use only certain percentage of people do have Ken Parcell spread virus. While that's a question like if you troubles for several days, weeks, no, but if you troubles for a day or two maybe. So you need to be careful in your part of the washer. Hudson depleted what they suggest that when you order things in the boxes come to your house, leave them outside for what about three hours is not what you do well the defense unless you have like grocers of the obviously but you know delete the box outside.

They say you can get infected from just speaking to someone he could still get to the communicable way some vaccines like flu and pneumonia vaccines protect against, 19 know even if you can get pneumonia because of Corbett does love the simpler, more new books in that it's available only almost finishing with a visual only a few minutes left them if they think each of audio producer Jasper for being with us today for making music possible and thanks to Christian, I guy probably telling more face continuing guidance shall it's pretty awesome.
