I’m writing as an update. I posted about my husband’s issues over a year ago. The cycle continued: homelessness, drug use, psychosis, hospital admission, med refusal. Last January he was arrested for possession and was in jail for close to 10 days when he attempted suicide. He was unsuccessful. I bailed him out and he went in the hospital. Again the cycle continued.
In May he went in the hospital and something clicked… the Dr made the official SZ diagnosis and he began invega. After a few bumps… my husband is at home and 120 days clean. He hates invega and the side effects- esp. sexual- so it’s an argument each month but he’s never seriously tried to stop. He admits he’s happier now and admits he has SZ.
I’m just so grateful!
