Well, My father has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, he has it since I was born, he just got worse year after year and now he is very intolerable and troublemaker.
he always denied the fact that he is ill, he has been unemployed for almost 15 years, having delusion that he is Jesus or some kind of leader also always having the idea that my mom has an affair and somebody constantly stealing his “imaginary documents” every single day.
he has never been there for me, we didn’t have a typical “father-son moment”, he was more like a big selfish housemate than an adult father to me.
all doctors say that he has to be hospitalized for at least a month, but he ignores any kinds of medication and believes he is mentally healthy.
I love him and I don’t wanna break his heart but he is totally ruining our family, he made us all depressed by putting us under his financial and mental problems.
his misbehavior made us all ill and hopeless.
all I’m asking is :
Is it moral to force a 63 year old man to get hospitalized for treatment against his will ? is it late for him to get treatment? is it right to simply let it go and stand him just the way he is ?
