Thanks for creating the group for the caregivers like us. Sometimes it’s really hard for us to share everything in public but i can open up about everything happened so far. My brother (26) has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia in 2015. Initially, our family didn’t accept the fact because of unawareness and lack of knowledge about mental health issues. But as per the doctor’s advice we’ve started the treatment but it didn’t go well as most of the patients he also refused to take meds and believed he’s fine. Once he’s off the meds, the situation got worse and we had to face terrible pyschotic episodes of him. My parents had to left their jobs , since then we’re not financially sound.
In 2019, proper medication has been started. But he’s still facing auditory hallucinations and very intense delusions. Like he thinks that aliens exists and they’re on television. Also, we possess some magical power to get vanish suddenly. We are trying to make him understand but its not working. Please help us out on this.
