My son was diagd in 2006 with paranoid schizophrenia with homicidal tendencies. This diag has been correct for all intents and purposes. He has a long hisotry of hospitalizations and treatments, he is not med compliant.
He was arrested for a driving offense and they found marijuana in the car. He has been actively symptomatic for some time. His jail doc agrees, knows him from previous incarcerations and helped him be transfered to the psych hospital for treatment. Within 5 days he was transfered back to the jail, with a brand new diag of personality disorder, since ‘he is sleeping, his speech is not pressured and he is social’
now I am fighting for treatment. How is it possible to change such a serious diag in just 6 days? Yes he was sleeping, he feels safer in the hospsital, yes he was social, he had been in isolation for two months! Pressured speech? What is that even? They obviously did not listen to the phone calls i was getting from him.
He is taking the least amount of medication he can get away with now, they are changing to an anti anxiety med rather than an anti psych med and i am very worried. How do i get this hospital to read their own records on him?
