My daughter is not on any meds. she hates them and does not think she is sick. most of the time she is well enough for conversations. She doesn’t work and thinks she can, but she has no drive or ability to make decisions. She hears voices, but says she doesn’t, she confesses sometimes that she lies about hearing voices. She is a college graduate and can convince most people she is well, like the crisis assessment team. She just spent two weeks in the hospital after a month long of psychosis, she was in a very bad way and not functioning well at all, acting like a 5 year old. She said she should have been taken to a psychologist for help instead, and that was all she needed. She doesn’t accept her illness and thinks she is fine. The best thing that helps her is sarcosine, an amino acid, but she won’t take that since it is like admitting she is ill. She is now taking a product called Juvo, which is full of amino acids and it is preventing another break down. So far so good. It has only been a few weeks.
She quit taking the Juvo and is beginning to slide downward. This morning she was walking around the house in a towel only. This seems to be her current pattern of being in a towel most of the time. She doesn’t feel worthy of God to wear clothes is what she has said in the past.
