This was a rare precious moment. When he has been on his meds for a couple months, his “positive” symptoms , ie hearing voices , lessen. Whilst he has told me in a big hug, and in tears, that he loves me so much. He has also told me that I am not his mother, but the devil and evil.
I have found that unless a carer or friend has actually spent some time with someone suffering sz, that they cannot understand why their way of thinking is so totally different.
Fortunately , my son, 31 has supported housing, though at the moment, he is in Japan, without his meds, overstaying his visa, and under the attention of the U.K. Consulate. I cannot get any news of him unless he wants me to know. Privacy laws! Even tho he is my next of kin and is a high functioning sz sufferer.
