I'm going to give this having-a-life-of-my-own thing another try.
I sure would like to be able to come on here and participate with everyone, but it's such a production. Because my son uses my computer a lot, and the last thing I want is for him to see what I'm writing about
him, or even to see the subject line in the computer history. I have to remember to delete everything each time I come on, and remembering is not my strong suite. So I don't come on at all...
Anyway - things are marginally better, at least on the surface. He's on 4 meds, one of which, Ativan, helps a lot with his anxiety, but it's not working as well as it was. I know it's very addictive and they don't like to prescribe it for long periods. He's at an appointment right now with a nurse-practitioner he hasn't seen before. I'd asked if I could go with him, to be an extra pair of eyes and ears, but he said no.
We had hoped that he was starting to realize his paranoia was unfounded, that no one was literally out to kill him for some horrible transgression against God, but no (and he isn't going to
open up to any medical people about
this.) Apparently, all the meds do is make it easier to live with a bad situation.
So until something gives, I've got to start thinking about
other things! I can't change anything by continuing to google every single idea or angle that pops into my head about
mental illness. Of course, now that I've said this, some other crisis will probably hit - Just Kidding!!
