HE- A Very Ill Man, Does Not Want My Help

Sometimes in life we have to count our losses and move on. HE's a grown man as some would say. Right now, HE does not want to hear any thing about psychiatric care. The way HE is acting, HE needs to be in a facility. HE is not paying his bills, he has come to have a gambling addiction and he is just not himself. If this is the way HE wants to be, then there is very little that I can do for to me HE is acting and looking like a bum. But I know what no one else knows-the bum in HE. HE is very likeable, but a lot of people are afraid of him. It depends on who HE is talking to. He can play the role of a con artist very well, it depends on who he is dealing with.

I have not heard from HE in several days, after his phone was suspended. Why is it suspended, for it should not be. Simply, HE did not pay the bill. HE has become a lottery ticket playing and gambling man who had a beer or two only to go asleep. HE is regressing back to the olden days when he was driving cabs, flirting with younger woman. What HE should do is to wrap that foot and keep off of it as advised.

Schizophrenia is not a picnic as those of you who have it know and those of you who are caregivers really know. You must take those meds faithfully. If the psychiatrist did not prescribe them for you, that's one thing. If they are prescribed, there'a reason. The prescribing of medicine is not to be taken lightly.

Well, in closing I would like to say that future entries are probably going to be based on what I know to be true about my father, trying to see if HE can get in an assisted living residence. In the meantime, I am still going to school at the university doing the best that I can so that I can learn more about life.
