My Son is Schizophrenic

On November 7, 2007 my son was discharged from the hospital after a week of treatment after making threats against himself and others. While hospitalized it was discovrered he is paranoid schizophrenic , bi-polar and
having multiple personalities. The latter was the cause of his making threats as he doesn't remember doing it.
If this wasn't bad enough a young woman he was living with look a DVO out on him, failed twice to show up in court and it was thrown out. By the way she is bipolr and is unpredictable in her behavior. She also broke up with him and is shacked up with a new man. She calls our house on occasion and the latest tie she fussed at him about finding a job, why would she care if they are not involved with each other? Can't answer that one.
She is definitely one for the ages. If she calls again I'm going to block the number. Speaking plainly, the girl is nuts. On top of this he can't keep a job due to his illness, his doctor has recommended he draw disability, we
are trying to get it for him. We are in a holding pattern. Today he talked to Job Corps and has another meeting with them. He hasn't had much luck in the last three years , at times he was virtually homeless, moving around from place to place. It was really sad. We are hopeful things will change. -30-
