Happy New Year! - Schizophrenia: The Perspective of a Father & Brother-in-Law

Happy New Year!

Okay, it's January 6th, but it is still a new year. As of this date my son is still in the process of trying to get dis-
ability. He as landed a job and he and some friends are still trying to get a band together. Finally some positive things are coming his way. In the case of the brothe-in-law, he appears to be going downhill what with a bad ankle, nearly constant coughing, and his habits. He missed a recent psych appointment with the VA, claiming he was told he didn't have to go. WRONG! He just didn't want to make it, now it has to be rescheduled.
In my opinion he needs to be in an assisted care facility.

On another subject my wife is showing signs of some sort of mental illness, maybe bipolar disorder, what we used to call manic depression, my ex father-in-law has it along with other ailments. I often wonder if there's anything wrong with me. Earlier tonight my wife fussed at me about nothing new in particular and she blamed me for her anguish, I complimented her for finally admitting what I had suspected for a long time, that I am the cause and the blame for all her problems, I suspect everything is getting to her, she just doesn't handle pressure very well at all. She could take a lesson from me. Choose the battles you wish to fight, waht you can do something about go after, and what you can't let go. See ya. -30-
