I have an odd request…
as some of you know,
Our boy is 14, Early Onset Scz with academic delays. He is home schooled right now, since his last suicide attempt while in public school. He has been heavily medicated and has been sleeping for almost a year and a half through all the med adjustments. We finally found the “right meds”, at least for now…and he “woke up”. Literally…wants to participate again (to a degree). He has started writing short stories…thinking that perhaps he could be a “writer”.
The point…he is interested in something and I don’t want to discourage him at this particular time with the realities of his future. (How do I even know? I can’t predict where he’ll be…)
My request is this…HE has asked if there is someone would read his work, and give some feedback? It’s an interesting request, as he refuses to interact with anyone online…and is specifically asking for “my friends who understand medication and scz”.
Is anyone willing to read his short stories and provide a one or two line feedback?
He has a few short notes that a few ladies sent posted on his wall. These notes mean the world to him…when, for so long, nothing really seemed to motivate him.
(He is academically delayed, so please don’t expect high quality writings. About 5th grade level.)
Thank you for listening…
