What are you supposed to do when you hear the word schizophrenia used in the same sentence as your 10 year old son’s name? It feels like the end of the road. As far as mental health goes can it get any worse? You might say “at least you’re not dealing with a sociopath” to which I would respond “that’s on the list of possibles as well.
Is it really possible to have all these separate conditions? So far we have a rare form of aspergers,ocd,pica,sid,bipolar,psychosis,ptsd,adha and now schizophrenia. There are more in the list then what I named but I can’t think straight now.
Are we even qualified to be doing this? Hell, the professionals don’t even know what to do. I honestly saw this coming, we both did. It explains so much. The voices, the “imaginary” friends, the worlds he interacts with and the trouble recognising the difference between real and imaginary. I thought it was schizoaffective disorder. My understanding of that is basically extreme bipolar to the point of hearing things ect..That always made sense to me.
Either way if this pans out we will have a whole new set of challenges facing us.
