My son was hospitalized for three weeks in Sept. He had stopped taking his meds and spiraled downward. The meds were changed to a monthly injection and daily meds for anxiety,etc. He is desperate to have a wife and kids all of a sudden (at age 52). It is a nightmare to get him to go in for the injection,not to mention that he drinks all kinds of herbal teas and is afraid to take his daily meds when he drinks them.He becomes mean and irritable without meds . Has anyone else faced this problem ? I understand how he feels but am at a lose as to a solution. The doc says when he is stable and in a relationship he can cut back on the injections. He insists he has a rare disease that was transmitted 24 years ago through sexual contact; of course the docs can't find anything wrong but he is stuck in that scenario and can't let go of it. Then there is the intense religiosity added in which he says he is paying for the sin of fornication. if I were not afraid of him un-medicated this would all be hilarious but I am. Some of you may remember me from last year around this time...........Here we go again...
