Just needing a little advice or opinions…
I realize no one can diagnose, but now-after 20 years, my son may be getting a different diagnosis. The case manager at mental health court-along with her team are baffled by my son. He will not talk about his schizophrenia or let me say-he never admits to, or talks about any hallucinations
- he is very secretive about his life. Very quick to anger, no patience, seems not to care about anyone else`s feelings or what is happening with them. extremely manipulating.
He has been off drugs for 2 years. doesn’t seem to appreciate the support he gets (have to say that it
s mainly just me and an aunt in california) Doesnt want to get some tests done for his seizures. Mentioned this site to him and he tells me that he`s heard enough about his disease to last a lifetime.
Afew weeks ago, he called me to say he was having hallucinations. That was a first. He is 37 years old.
His case manager is suggesting that maybe he has a personality disorder.
Schizo something personality disorder???
I have a sister with bipolar, a father that was diagnosed with borderline schizophrenia-----this was a LONG time ago.
They are trying to push him to get these tests so they can see if anything organic is going on…from the accident he had at 19, or from the drugs he used. My son is stubborn as a rock. Can`t talk him into anything.
What do you think of this?**
