What took place in this picture was absolutely heartbreaking

What took place in this picture was absolutely heartbreaking At therapy tonight, Gavin wanted to bring us up to speed on his missions. It's important to understand that these missions are related to his Schizophrenic hallucinations, and done with a team that only he can see. It was heartbreaking to hear the depths of his delusions anymore. Dr. Pattie and I just looked at each other in disbelief when he was finished with his debriefing. He had talked nonstop for almost twenty-minutes, without taking a breath. It's gut wrenching to see where his mental health has taken him at this point. I wish there was something that we could do, besides love and care for him, but sadly, that's all we can do. I'm a fixer by nature and this is something that can never be fixed..

    You know, Bartonella Henselae has been linked to hallucinations. It is also known as cat scratch fever. It will also cause immunosuppression if untreated long term. Cats carry it, but also fleas (you have dogs, right) ticks and lice. Toxoplasmosis is also linked to schizophrenia. The other thing your doc can do is order a CNS antibodies panel through Athena Diagnostics. Many autoimmune brain diseases have hallucinations and delusions as a symptom and mirror schizophrenia, bipolar and other mental illnesses. It’s worth a shot to keep pushing to get to the bottom of it. These things always have a cause, and maybe if you find the cause you can treat that, and maybe the hallucinations will ease up or reduce or stop altogether.
