I’ve found myself in quite an odd position. Someone very close to me disappeared from my life along time ago. Now they’ve made contact and have paranoid schizophrenia. They didn’t have this before.
They treated me very badly (before the illness) and have caused me a lot of pain. I do want to meet with them, to get answers. However as they have this diagnosis I’m wondering if they’ll be able to manage such a meeting? Can someone with this illness see things from someone else’s perspective or do they become quite insular? Would the stress of the meeting cause a relapse?
Will they be the person I remember or would this illness have changed them?
