Anti-inflamatory drug and psychosis

I have been researching for literature concerning pain and psychosis (e.g., schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder)... more specifically... looking to see what kind of pain measures are used for the researchers to perform the assessments....

Then, today, as I was going through the abstracts, I encountered several articles discussing anti-inflammatory-drug-induced psychosis....

  1. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10468178
  2. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8707453
  3. http://ajp.psychiatryonline.org/cgi/content/full/159/9/1606-a
It sort of got me all excited because what this line of research tells me is that... I am not crazy-- or, ok, I am crazy, yet it was actually sort of normal for me to become institutional grade kind of abnormal... (what kind of logic is that... 8-O lol 8-X)

Isn't life strange? How could what be so right be so wrong?

Sort of like what this old psychiatrist said to me one time after I provided him with observations concerning the increased level of psychotic symptoms...

He said, "It is positive."

I asked, "It is good?" 8-O

He explained, "Positive symptoms." 8-O lol
