In Part 2 of Talking with a Schizophrenic, Gavin details his latest mission to save the timeline from his evil self. It’s very important to understand that this is not an issue of an overactive imagination.
If you missed Part 1, you can find that here.
In Gavin’s mind, these things are actually happening and they are very real.
He does his best to recount his actions but struggles with memory recall. He’s very proud of these missions, wants to share them and truly believes he’s saved the Universe. We don’t feed the delusions but we don’t challenge them either.
Our job is to listen when he wants to talk because as long as he’s comfortable telling us these things, we have a much better understanding of where he is and how we can help him.

You’re a Good Dad Rob, it can’t be easy to sit and speak calmly with Gavin about his hallucinations with reinforcing or challenging them.
