My brother was diagnosed schizoaffective. He left his halfway home and has been alone, traveling the country for 5 months. He just started calling me from a pay phone.
He is delusional. He thinks his food was poisoned a few weeks ago, and even though he’s pretty young (25ish) he thinks he’s gonna die of a heart attack. He is only contacting me and doesn’t want anyone else in the family to know where he is or that he’s calling me. I told him something today on the phone and he told me ‘They told me that’, they being the voices he hears. Our mom is schizophrenic so I’m familiar with some of the symptoms.
How do I help him? I ask him if he wants to come home. He says no. I ask him if he wants me to send him a phone card, he says no. He says he is sleeping in the lobby of a McDonald’s. I am sad and stressed.
