Son has been on Invega-Sustenna depot injection for one month now. He had previously stopped taking his ap’s in January, spiraled down into psychosis until he was committed to the hospital in May.
For the past year or so I could not get son interested in anything we were having for dinner. He never wanted to be around me or my husband much less eat what were having for dinner. His eating habits were very sporadic.
So this evening I’m in the kitchen preparing chicken sausage, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Son walks in, says “that sure does smell good, when will it be ready”. So 30 minutes later he comes up in his Hugh Hefner-ish robe and loads his plate up:) This may not sound like a big deal but it’s a big change from his previous behavior.
As he’s walking out of the kitchen he says “Mom, ya know since I’ve been eating three meals a day lately, I can’t believe how normal I’m beginning to feel”. Feeling pretty happy right now
