Hi, I’m new to these boards and schizophrenia and so apologies for so many questions.
It’s my dad’s 60th today. My brother was diagnosed with schizophrenia a few months ago. He’s still in the early stages of medication, which is proving to be a battle.
He’s staying with a childhood friend at the moment, or so he says. Two days ago he’s blocked the whole family on his phone from WhatsApp. He’s never done this before. He directs his hostility towards his family. Do you think my dad’s 60th could be a trigger? My brother has always struggled socially. My dad has lots of friends and I wonder whether this could be a sore point.
I hope he unblocks us in the next day or two or else I’m going to drive to his friends to check he is ok.
