it may have some truth to it.
My son has not being doing well since May 20 & getting more and more paranoid. I had to take to ER 2 days ago because he could not sleep and wanted to confront my roommate and tell him bad words so his stomachache will go away.
My roommate called him mentally ill like 10 days ago but I spoke to my roommate and ask him to avoid my Son and not to address him as mentally ill.
for the last 4 days, My roommate was kind of locked in his room after coming back from work.
it has been very uneasy situation.
my Son keeps on saying that the damage is done and he wanted to confront my roommate to feel better. he wanted me to kick him out and he said that he cannot stand him in the house.
when we went to ER, I did ask the doctor to admit him to mental hospital and told him about all the delusional things he has been experiencing like: he thinks his skin is decaying, his arms are skinnier and his belly is getting bigger and his skin has brown spots all over… and there is a chip in his ear and he thinks he needs brain surgery.
but doctor still thinks that my son is not symptomatic and he said he would not admit to hospital against his will and it would be cruel to admit him since he not was showing any symptoms.
I was really frustrated since I got the 90 days emergency guardianship toward the end of May and cannot enforce treatment. it is like the doctor does not believe me. My son is very manipulative and convincing when he talks to doctor. he takes the meds when he is in Hospital. When we get home, he argues with me over and over until my head hurts that he is not sick and does not need the meds…
Now, my only option to get a court order for Involuntarily commitment which I cannot do before next appointment date of Tuesday June 20. but my son may leave to California since he has to appear at May 26 for a Court violation.
I know if he goes to California, he will for sure will be non-complaint on Meds.
he took his meds for the last 3 days but now, he wants to stop.
I feel I am just patching up a cut/scrape with temporary band aid and wait until it gets worse and patch it up again.
sorry about this long report.
