Hello everyone, I am new here.
I have been lurking for a while now, and have learned so much from all of you.
My son has not been specifically diagnosed with sz, but has been released 14 days ago from a 27 day inpatient stay ( non voluntary) at age 19 with the diagnosis of psychotic disorder. They were unable to confirm sz, and are waiting 6 months to see if it was drug induced due to his history of heavy pot smoking and use of hallucinogens.
I’ve been trying to learn all I can to better help and support him.
My question is this: he says his prior use of hallucinogens has caused a spiritual awakening in him. This is something that caused him to behave bizarrely prior to his hospitalization. Although he is currently prescribed, and compliant with his medications, he is still secretly creating alter like spaces in his bedroom, with colored pens , candles, and meaningful objects like coins.
I am looking for input from other family members and those of you who are diagnosed as to what to make of it. Should I be concerned or let it go?
It seems harmless, and he has told me he is now focusing on positive energy rather than evil energy like he was doing previously.
