It’s like being throat punched back into reality

While we were waiting for the movie to begin, Gavin kept pulling out his invisible phone and texting back and forth with Sonic The Hedgehog. 

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen him do this and I’m sure it won’t be the last either. 

Please understand that this isn’t just an overactive imagination. He’s delusional to such an extent that he cannot be convinced that these things aren’t real. We don’t question him because doing so isn’t in his best interest.  We do however, talk to him about these things and ask him questions about the missions he goes on. 

He really likes talking about this stuff and doing so helps us to keep tabs on just how bad things are getting. 

All that being said, he really liked the movie and had a good time. That’s important to us and we’re thrilled to just spend the time with him outside the house. 

Watching your almost seventeen year old son, interact with his schizophrenic hallucinations is a level of heartache that I just don’t have the words to adequately describe. 

Nonetheless, we took advantage of the time together, even if we weren’t alone. 

After picking up the boys and arriving back at home, Gavin informed me that his friend from Equestria would be staying with us for a little while. Apparently, her parents to think she’s in danger and only Gavin can keep her safe.. 🙁 

I’m going to sleep and when I wake up in the morning, I’ll once again think this was all just some crazy dream before being throat punched back into reality.
