Went to visit my dad with paranoid SZ for the first time in a long time with my family. He recently had a stroke. So he’s stuck in his own body with his voices. After we left, he attempted suicide by slicing his throat with a kitchen knife. Mom (also mentally ill) called 911. All happened Dec 25th evening. Mom blames me for coming home. I honestly told her she is not thinking clearly if she’s blaming anyone for his attempt. Dad couldn’t say much to us and seemed frustrated while we were there. Obviously, he was unstable enough to attempt suicide.
I found out dec 26th morning with a text message from my dads brother. Called my mom, and got a lot of discrepancies. Called the hospital, he was okay but very unstable. Upped his Thorazine. Also on Prozac, zyprexa, and risperodone. Transferred from med surge to the psych unit today.
A lot to process through. My dad’s in so much pain.
