I really need help in copeing


#1

I have a son who is extreamly talkative to no one…please, please anyone out here who can help me?


#2

Does he talk to himself a lot? What’s his age?


#3

It comes with the territory sometimes. Don’t try to change him, accept him the way he is. He doesn’t talk for reasons that to him are good.


#4

He talks from the min his eyes are open, to whenever it is he goes to sleep, non-stop. Inside the house, outside…he slaps whatever there is around him, fights it, argues it, and laughs with it. I don’t try to change him, I try to calm him sometimes when its a bit much


#5

Sorry, I thought you meant he won’t talk much to anyone. Does his Dr know about this?


#6

I find this somewhat concerning. If he is physically interacting with his hallucinations it may be time to seek some outside help.


#7

I cant find help on the outside. Yes he starts up the min, and I do mean the min he awakes, un stop til he sleeps. I had to ask the “other” to leave my home the other night, “IT” went, but so did my son. I am heart broken, scared to death for him, I don’t know where to turn anymore. Someone out here has advise, someone out here has a answer.

He refuses to seek a doctor, he says his other voice is his best friend
