Is this quite “normal” son 25 is on 150mg of paliperidone depot each month.
Every day is the same, he will get up, shower have breakfast , usually nearing mid day.
He wont go anywhere himself , occasionally to the shop beside us.
However if I or his dad are going anywhere , even the most mundane place he will want to tag along.
His Dad travels a bit and twice now our son has got up early to go with his Dad, Dad has meetings , son walks about the local place while his dad in meeting then they meet up after, he stayed over a few times as hubbys work lets him have a hotel.
Now he will do all this then at home does nothing. He will do things for me if I ask, if it involves fetching things, picking up things, etc but off his own accord = nothing.
He doesnt get into much tv, except at night maybe in his bed.
Don’t get me wrong, I am so thankful we are in a much better place than last year.
What I sort of mean is he relying on us way too much? or is it a genuine symptom ?
I can’t seem to work it out. I don’t know how much of an “enabler” I am becoming.
Silly question maybe? could it be the meds?
