His voices are begining to fade after being his "companions" for over four months. They occupied his attention and time almost completely. Only in the last one month thanks to Clozapine that we were able to get some parts of his attention.
Now there are larger and larger spaces of his time available to us and to himself...and another battle begins his and ours.
What does he fill his mind with.
Old ways of being are unavailable to him and we must invent or reinvent, things,people, places that would be of interest to him otherwise the danger of slipping into depression are really great.

How very true when the clozapine starts working we have other issues.It sure would be nice to have things run smoothly just for awhile so we could catch our breathe.Our son was diagnosed with schizophrenia/affective disorder at the age of 23 he is now 27.He is presently in along care facility and will remain there another year, he doesn't feel he is ill or requires medication.He probably began his unasked for journey of mental illness in his middle teens. We as parents of teen age boys thought it was just that teenage hormones.1 in a hundred will have schizophrenia little did we know how a small percentage could be so large when it hits home. Sorry to go on.We have to keep loving and giving and praying that one day our prayers will set these young men free.Red

Keep on fighting the good fight for your son.
You truly are a hero for writing this.
After all,the more people talk about things like this...the more they'll learn(about them and others).I truly hope that your son will get better soon.

Nothing but Love
