Most of us on this forum are troubled, depressed, burdened with a loved one with sz. If there is one thing that you could have done differently, knowing what you know now, what would that be? And if you had just 1 wish right now, and it could be granted, what would that be (within reason, of course)?
The thing I wish I could have done differently was seek help for him sooner, way sooner. Knowing and feeling and every bone in my body telling me there was something wrong with my son, I let it go for too long. I kept thinking it was just adolescent depression/anger issues, and thought he would eventually snap out of it. Little did I know that a catastrophe was around the corner for us, and he would be diagnosed with sz.
I won’t wish that he didn’t have sz (because I said within reason), but I wish every day that he will remain stabilized, and wish his negative symptoms do not get worse. I don’t think I’m asking for too much, or am I?
