HELP! Please. Nursing care plan assistance needed

  1. Good day everyone!

    I am posting after many hours trying to figure out how exactly to do a portion of an assignment I have. I am doing care plans from a psych ward rotation for the different Axis. So, the problem I am encountering is trying to write a pathophysiology for Axis I and Axis IV. The reason for this is that it is not an obvious "path". My biggest concern is for my Axis IV. Here I have a nursing diagnosis of "hopelessness r/t social isolation 2° being disowned by family." I have the picture in my head of how it works, but I am having one heck of a time trying to put it into words that is appropriate for a patho in a care plan.

    Please, can anybody help?

    The other patho I'm having a hard time with (although I have a sense if I am able to do the Axis IV this one would finally be able to be worded-it's often a issue of getting started that I have troubles with) is "disturbed thought process r/t hallucinations 2° Schizophrenia with psychosis."

    This is due in the morning, and I have tried for nearly a week to put these into words and have miserably failed. Thank you in advance for any and all help!

    I know this should be simple but I have a bad habit/tendency to over-complicate things.
