Sandy, Your son and you have touched my heart. I see this was written Aug 31st And it is Nov 9th now so praying all is well now for you, your son & family. I also have been were you are as I had to call the police on my son after a few times police had picked him up and he was treated so inhumane on those occasions but this one time I had to call the police as I felt for his safety as he left the house I thought he was going to go hurt himself, I listened to police on my house phone take him down and had him drip to his knees hands behind head etc IT KILLED ME and I am the one my son trusted the most he to would not look at me or except my visits etc…and hard to explain to them when there lost in there brain of why. Still today after that last relpse he says please don’t ever do that again, I said my son/baby please understannd it hurt me more but I am your Mother and feared for you and longggggggg talks he gets it but still with each relapse he throws it in my face. Please know Sandy, the specialists gave up on my son and said he would live his life in an institution, hellllllllll no I said, we fought hard and he was relapse free for 3 damn yes with no meds as long story but I thought it was gone then he relapsed Sept 5th and just this week he coming around but ya never know his roller coaster. Sandy NEVER give up. I fought form 1’s etc actually I think that is when my son gained trust in me and man what a battle. Thing is as a Mother and your beliefs get thrown out the window to help so there comfortable is the worst feeling this damn disease. I fought docs, police, husband, family but guess what he beat the odds for 3yr anyways arghhhhhh. Sandy, if you need anybody please add me as a friend. We can commute Facebook, email if you need anyone for aupport. Thinking of you and your son.
