Hello, I am new to this forum feeling so relieved that this exists for families. My son is 19, he was misdiagnosed at 16 with Bipolar and recently last year with Schizophrenia - this diagnosis feels like an immense loss of the child I once knew and the idea of the adult he would become.
Maintaining a healthy relationship with him is utterly important to me. I try to exhaust all options to keep him safe at home but its exhausting at times. I have 2 daughters that I also have to think about. Like most people my husband isn’t very educated on serious mental illnesses. He is supportive but I’m the full-time caretaker and oversee all his care.
There are so many struggles but right now medicine compliance - he’s been off his meds for 2 months and psychosis symptoms have reappeared. I don’t ever want to be the type of parent to hospitalize him for any discrepancy but how can I best support him right now??
Thanks for your time.
