My son checked himself into a hospital last week and has recently been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Since he lives so far away, I want to send him cards while he is in the hospital as I know he will enjoy getting them. I have been talking to him on the phone daily, and he is incredibly delusional, scared and confused…with a touch of paranoia.
I’m sitting here with cards for him and I have no idea what to write in them. But I don’t want to just sign them “Love mom” either. I don’t want to make the situation worse by saying something wrong or upsetting.
If anyone has any suggestions, I would really love to hear them. I read here somewhere that cards and letters could mean the world to someone when they are hospitalized…
