My son 26 is doing ok on aripiprazole , he mentions his delusions much less, they are weaker than they were, perhaps twice a week he will get frustrated and bring them up as opposed to much more frequent.
He goes to his bedroom 9pm every night, he watches tv , you tube etc for a while .
We don’t see him again till noon on a good day when he will get up, can be 1-2pm.
Sometimes I will tell him I’ve made something to eat and he will get up.
It’s during the day though he does nothing, nothing of note.
Walk around , watch sport on tv (lightly) he won’t spend any length of time doing anything.
He will go to gym “if” his dad goes, and he bought himself a bike about a month ago, he’s been on that about 5 times but by default his days are spent at home.
At times he will follow me room to room, it sometimes gets stifling, but all I do is think back to how bad it was then I feel ok.
Not sure if it’s good to do such a thing, but it’s my way of dealing with it.
I guess what I’m trying to say is , could the meds be doing this? Again it’s treading water. Is this how this illness progresses?
On a plus though he is more like himself and what he was like before this illness struck.
Anyone have similar ?
