The respective years of psychosis / total disability of myself, our middle brother and the oldest brother.
our oldest is now almost as bad as it gets. Alcohol and mental health together… in Stage 4 alcoholism with psychois for 6 years living with my Dad (we all did for long periods as adults with long term acute or residual illnes)
my prognosis at around 30 was really bad having spent 2 years out of 3 in florid psychosis - at least half of that in hospital
I don’t know how crazy alcoholics get.
is background bizarre beliefs and behaviours for 6 years with worsening periods of florid psychosis normal for alcoholism?
I have read it leads to psychosis in late stages but what her diagnosis would be I would really like to know
are periods of florid psychosis the norm with alcoholism as well as years spent with background delusional ideation?
