Hi, Doc John. I'm a sad mother whose son is 28 and has paranoid schizophrenia, going on three years now. Where should I go in the forums? I can't seem to find the right place.

Hi so glad I found this forum, have been caring for my mother since she was diagnosed a few years ago. She is on the invega monthly injection, through cto as she lacks insight. Although the psychosis has subsided, she has zero interest in her life and is just not functioning well. Me and the rest of the family are very worried, shes lost interest in once enjoyed activities! I am trying to get into contact with her case manager but every time I call I get told she will call me back, but never does. I just am thinking is there anything at all that might bring her back to her former self, i know theres no cure but to minimise the withdrawn effects and get her interested in life. She currently is sleeping most the day, cannot see why we are worried. There was her sister who told the dr at her last appointment at the community mental health centre but it seems they are not fazed and are discharging her to the gp. I just dont understand how the drs, case workers are not more worried. I certainly am worried, is hard seeing my mum just exist with no interest in life!
She isnt saying shes depressed, I think its part of the illness. Is there anyone out there that has any advice on how I can help her?

I had visual hallucinations in the hospital and I cried and my eyes got swollen and I could barely see and I saw shadows on the blank wall (It was blank I checked) of people eating people. It looked kind of like a puppet show. I was delusional with the delusion that I needed to get better from my problems by monitoring my bodily sensations. After a while and a lot of screaming I started to recover from that. I would also go into these rages where I would feel a lot of emotional pain that drove me to want to commit suicide because I was in so much pain. The antipsychotic completely made my anger and visual hallucinations go away but I'm left with a deep depression and weird thoughts. These thoughts I have that I am projecting my voice through sound once led me to lock myself in the closet because I was scared that people could hear my thoughts. I also struggle with self harm and depression. I have moments of deep suicidal sadness at least once a day and I really struggle with depression. I also threatened to stab myself once and I can barely remember but I went to the mental hospital once when I was psychotic and I was so out of it I couldnt stop feeling angry but now my symptoms are under control and I'm getting a college degree!

Voices. They'll be the death of us all. Unless...someone figured out everything one needs to know to make friends with them. Always angry? Critical? Make them sing "Row row row your boat" They won't like it-but they will sing it. If it takes all day, you make those voices sing. They might try to stop but don't you let them. Once they are stuck singing go ahead and laugh, you earned it. Teach them Happy Birthday. Does this mean you can make them say anything you want? You bet. They'll go away in a couple of weeks to a few months, but till then they are going to tell you how great you are, how they wish they could be you. You might even miss them when they go. Truth Voices are a rhythmic thumping in the brain that mimics critical or angry tone. Obsessing over it is not a choice. The obsession triggers the thumping and vice versa (this is just a crazy theory but it might work) If it helps pass it on
