@Vallpen Yes indeed! very similar....glad to have an opportunity to converse. My son also does not always answer the door either-nor will he usually return phone calls to anyone. I recently had an old friend of mine from high school drop by for a visit and my son would not come out of his room while she was here.
You said that your son has recently had a remission of the voices, that is such good news!
I recall about 6 months into my son's clozaril therapy his voices began to fade away and it kind of amazed him...like a new reality. It definitely takes a lot longer for my son to process changes-internal and external,
My son has lived with me since his diagnosis a little over 10 years ago except for a brief time when I tried to having him live in a monitored group home and he almost killed himself there, so I gave up on that idea all together.
He has had a case manager for the past 5 years and I just recently told the case manager we were good without him because the case manager did nothing to help any aspect of my son's life. No offense to the case manager, I already had everything covered, so.....there really was nothing left for him to do...so since even attending appointments stress my son out and he has to go to all of the medical and psych ones-I decided that this was one appointment we really didn't need. The guy was a nice guy but he made no connection with my son in the 5 years he was his case manager. Maybe that's normal I don't know but for now I am 'case manager' ...
