My Brother-In-Law Is A Paranoid Schizophrenic

He has been for the past thirty-five years, it was the result of a nervous breakdown, we suspect. Prior to that he had been an active person with a job, money and loved to tinker with cars and trucks, enjoying the latter with his older brother for a long time. He still works on his truck occasionally. For the past few months he hasn't been very active, about all he does is sit in his room, smoking like an old locomotive, drinking tea to excess, going to the restrom, sometimes not quite making it and urinating on himself, when he brings his laundry to be washed it reeks. It smells about as bad as the pet duck he was supposed to care for but doesn't,
Probably his illness has everything to do with it. It changes your life and others around you and it is frustrating as hell. I can tell you it has for me. For a long time I had some real problems with it because I didn't understand it but do now. You don't want to have it, it is debilitating and it can be hell on earth, just ask any blogger on this site. -30-
