Daughter in hospital recovering from her 1st relapse after sz diagnosis 14 years ago.
Until her hospitalisation, apart from a blip here and there needing pyschiatric support, she’s had no really bad delusions or behaviour, at least nothing that was terribly shocking or gave us cause to be scared of her. In some ways, reading the cries for help on here, we felt lucky we were all managing so well. However, just before we hospitalised her, and during her time in hospital as they’ve weaned her off her current medication in order to try a new one, we’ve witnessed delusions and agressive behaviour that have been very unpleasant, and I know anybody reading this will know what I mean.
She’s about to be discharged and we’re going to have her staying with us until she’s able to live independently again. The trouble is, because we’ve seen this new side of her sz, seeing her at her very worst, with no medication to dampen her symptoms, we’re actually a little scared of her. It’s horrible, feeling scared of our own daughter.
Anybody got any advice that can help us deal with this?
