My son takes 15 mg of ability daily. He rarely mentions delusions etc, I know he still has some of them as he writes a lot of stuff done . I actually didn’t think he still had these but recently found his writings.
He’s not moving forward at all in terms of socialising. Yes he keeps saying “but hello it’s Covid !!!” He says he has low energy levels, he still manages to eat and never misses the offer of food .
He’s gained so much weight , it saddens me , but it’s his for what of another word his “laziness” that’s getting harder to cope with for us at home. He will do nothing except sit on laptop all day .
What I’m wondering is again I’m doubting myself here, could it be the abilify that’s causing this ? He has no interaction now with doctor or the mental health team as he’s been discharged. He never accepted them or accepted he needed help anyway.
I suggested lowering them and asking our GP to perhaps cut the dose slightly to see if this help but he’s against any involvement with GP, he says he’s stopping them anyway by himself
He’s incapable of seeing how this affects his Dad and me, it’s like we are made of stone . ( not literally)
