My 22 year old son spent June to August in an institution. The ward was friendly and relatively free. He was let out symptom free (as in no voices or at least totally back to being in control of them) and came home to a world full of promise. New case worker. Nice social worker (the first time he has been assigned a personal one).
Now this. I saw him starting to peak again and called his pdoc. Pdoc admitted him on the spot. New doctor does not know my son is not dangerous to others and has only ever harmed himself ( he has had SZ since he was 14).
I’m a single Mother. Alone here tonight with a phone call telling me he is in a solitary unit and they had to strap him to the bed. For a young man with asthma and excema and SZ this has to be so horrible. Feeling afraid for him. In need of support emotionally. I don’t live in USA. I have no other family but him. I am not allowed see him yet but will meet the new pdoc tomorrow. I know he is peaking, I know he is really out of control (he broke his knuckle banging his fist into the wall this morning in frustration). Sigh. Here we go again :((((((
