My daughter’s psychologist mentioned this article: http://nymag.com/press/2018/12/on-the-cover-menopausal-schizophrenia.html
Now, my daughter is only 17yo. But her point was that the disease, like other diseases, can look different in women. My daughter doesn’t have a lot of government conspiracy paranoid delusions, not yet anyway. She is very immature, child-like even (picture a teenager 5’9" using baby talk). The few summer jobs she’s had haven’t ended well because although she usually starts out strong, after a few weeks it’s the same story - so-and-so is mean and says things about her, or is a bully. One thing that has seemed to be helping is CBD oil. She seems and reports feeling much happier, which gives me some hope. Right now the plan is to apply for guardianship in June when she turns 18. She enrolled in community college for next fall. We’ll see how things go I guess.
