I still have to say, LEAP methods did work. The first attempt took a year, the second attempt took two years.
TWICE now we have gotten him to a psychiatrist to try meds, that is pretty impressive. He didn’t refill his prescriptions for the meds that were prescribed in July. Of course we had high hopes while telling ourselves to not get our hopes up too high.
Gearing up for round three, may take 3 years, personally, I never know what exactly is around the bend in this business. I don’t know what may happen tomorrow.
Quick update, my 35 year old son suffers from scz and has the symptom of anosognosia - its a big word that means he doesn’t know he is sick. He is pretty sure his life would be just peachy if all of us would quit yelling mean words at him, threatening to kill him, and most recently he has added that his dad and I need to stop sexually abusing him.
My son’s form of scz and his other presentations suggest that his sort of scz is the sort that can have the least possible positive endings. BUT, as Dr Torrey also tells us in his book, “There are enough exceptions to make anyone humble about predicting”
So I remain hopeful, working LEAP, and trying to get through each day.
TWICE, LEAP used with extreme diligence, has worked twice.
