Expect The Unexpected - Schizophrenia: The Perspective of a Father & Brother-in-Law

Expect The Unexpected

Living with two schizophrenics presents a challenge each day, especially when you live with two that are forty years apart in age. One has appeared to give up on his health possibly because he is just tired of the struggle and figures he has little time left on earth while the other, my son is trying to find his health and get a life for himself. And, you might say, where does this place me? Square in the middle being pulled by all sides including a wife who has issues affecting her that somehow reach me as well. Recently we acquired a new furry friend, a cat who looks like one of our others and he is just a delight, we call him Little Bear , he just looks like Harry, our long hair, only younger and strangely enough, acts like him in so many ways, it's kind of surreal.
And of course, we still have the duck who makes a habit of attacking everyone in sight by biting, we have found him a home, just a matter of time until he makes it there, and I will be very pleased for he is causing me a lot of stress, just recently my anti-depressant was increased and it is already showing results and it has only been about a week, goes to show you how the mental state of mind can be affected by positive thinking. Now I have to work on the wife, she is showing signs of breaking down though she will not seek help, I'm just about ready to give up on her. Oh, well, more next time, goodbye.
