Hello new to this forum, but need some advice. My boyfriend, who was diagnosed with mild schizophrenia 8 years ago, but has shown no syptoms since, recently had a crises and has now been in a physicatric hosptial for nearly 2 weeks in an isolated room. We are in the middle of buying our first home together and as the signing date got closer, the more stressed he got. Needless to say we havent signed yet as the weekend before he had a car accident ( due to tiredness ) and is now contained. He is very angry with the nurses and doctors and keeps telling them that he needs to be released so he can sign for the house, they are also not letting him see me ( I have seen him once and with me he is calm ) even though he is asking. Its very distressing for all concerned. As this is the first time for me to experience anything like this, I was wondering if anyone has any advice... what are these crises ? How long do they last ? Whats the best way to deal with them ? Will he be able to keep his job ? How can we make sure he can "survive" on the outside ? Would it be best not to buy the house ( therefore not the stress ) ? Help please !
