My daily back and forth conversations with my son have changed ALOT and wondering if you all have similar times like this… kind of concerned…
My son and I would speak/text throughout the day, He lives in an apartment and we always texted each other goodnight, sometimes with a photo. We would go to lunch or dinner at least twice a week, and see each other on weekends. Conversations are hard, sometimes a smile or a laugh, but they at least flowed for a short time. And sometimes he would bring up something to talk about.
This past month it all has changed. Little texting, no more nightly texts. Questions I ask come with a one word reply, if any. We do not see each other as much. I know about the ‘flat affect’ but it has not lasted this long. To me he seems mad. When I ask specifically about noticing a change he simply says, ‘I am fine’. He has never shared about hearing voices…he said that is personal. He does see a counselor and we have spokenabout this, however he said he does not see the change that I have seen.
I would love to how your days and communicating go with your loved one. Difficult and trufhfully feel hurt, but remind myself not to take in personally.
Thanks so much!!
