This may be encouraging.
Yes, thank you. The link is encouraging. I also find your posts and others very encouraging.
From the link: “If schizophrenia is treated quickly and consistently…with good response to treatment, the prognosis is usually very good.” (This is why parents try to force people to treatment they don’t want, because we read that early treatment helps. I am not a doctor, so I do what doctors tell me to. I have stopped pushing, but I tried for a few years.)
My son has been ill for almost four years and declines treatment. I am hopeful that he will find a way to be himself while making his way in the world.
