This doctor worked with cognitive behavior therapy, I believe she was trying to help him examine his situation. He would have concerns (delusions) about me and she was able to point out things that she knew I was doing for him.
I am so sorry your son lost his dad. No, my son’s dad is in the picture. We made a lot of mistakes in the early years of my son’s scz. My husband didn’t understand the importance of LEAP for building trust. My husband would question my son’s delusions and would tell him that he had a mental illness. As they say can happen if we challenge their delusions, my husband “became” a part of the delusions. Little by little, my son began to focus on his dad. My husband grew extremely fearful of our son - especially after a mom from our Family to Family class was killed (along with her husband) by their smi son.
Long story short, my husband stopped interacting with our son in any way. That’s why the doctor didn’t have anything she could use to build a positive case “for” my husband.
I have continued to make sure my son does know the things I do and over time he does trust me enough to let me know when he needs helps. I hope this relationship of ours will lead to meds at some point in the future. Currently we had agreed to disagree on the subject of meds. Current Plan we have Partnered on - is he runs the show and I support his decisions.
Our sons sound similar, both are determined to do things their way, they live on their own with life supports in place and both have anosognosia.
