can someone get ssi without taking medicine and seeing a therapist.
I did a trust few years ago and now, I will work on getting the trust modified so I can appoint my brother to care for him in future or may be a good friend.
I am able to get him hospitalized because he keeps on escaping to California and was homeless for few months and I would reporting him as missing. Police found him couple of time and took him to Hospital.
I did pay $1500 in 2015 to my lawyer to do emergency involuntarily commitment and he was hospitalized for 5 weeks. but every time, he get out from hospital, he would stop medicine after 2 to 3 weeks. I am in viral cycle,... seems like no end to it.
he was hospitalized like 8 times and still not complaint on meds.
his headache which I am thinking now are being caused by Physocis are primarily reason for his relapses and also the fact that he hates the side effects of those meds. He just does not want to take meds.
Regarding guardianship; my lawyer told me it is the best to get him committed to hospital in order to get him Guardianship. but I am tired of forcing him into hospitals and this will cost me like $3000.00
my son is now coming back tomorrow home with a friend from California and called me and told me that if I have intention of forcing meds on him, he will stop some place along the way like Utah or Wyoming and live like a homeless person better than taking meds.
not sure what to do! I need to find a way to convince him to take the med without hospital
I had paid for his friend ( older man) to travel with him by greyhound. can you image that how much he is costing me $. I have to work 2 jobs to keep take care of his screw ups and paying for someone to care for him when his is in California so I can prevent him from being homeless.
