My brother was relapsing with his schizophrenia for the past few months and during this most recent episode he’s completely unresponsive. No, he is not on a rampage as the stereotype for schizophrenia goes. He just plain cannot communicate with us anymore. I feel like I can’t even reach him; his mind is in another dimension. I hope it’s a nice dimension, because he has a permanent smile on his face. At least it’s not a depressive/paranoid episode.
Please pray for him to get better. We are already trying everything we can to help him, but with our stupid healthcare system he probably won’t get an appointment with his psychiatrist for five months, and we can’t take him off his meds or make any changes to his prescription without a doctor’s approval.
I just want my brother back.
