My brother is 21 and has been paranoid sz for about 2 years now. He was living with our mom and grandmother until last night. He talks to himself a lot. He smiles for no reason.
He isolates himself all the time. He stays up late turning lights on and off and going outside to smoke. He isnt a harm to himself but he has threatened our mom a couple of times. Lately, he has had real issues with what he looks like. He has thought his neck is to long, his arms are out of socket, his skull is shrinking and his shin looks different than all of ours. He tells us nothing is wrong with him. Clearly, he has to be lying. I dont know how he could think that.
Bc he want get help, he had to leave their house. Last night our aunt and uncle dropped him off downtown at a Out Reach place (A church), gave him his bag, a hug and told him we loved him. She said he stood there as they drove off. She felt like he probably thought they were coming back to get him. Breaks my heart! He has a phone but had no minutes on it. It pissed me off bc i dont think he even knows how to buy minutes for his phone. Someone should have done thay for him.
We dont know where he is. His phone has no minutes and his is sz. Wont get help, wont take meds. I think my family hopes this will make him realize he needs help. Not sure if this is the beat way to do it.
My mom just called me and said my brother called her and said he walkes for about 20 miles last nt and he needs a ride somewhere. My mom refused. She told me to call him on some #. I did and the phone is turned off. Now what will happen!!?
