My lovely son was diagnosed three months ago, with schizophrenia, following months of erratic emotional and behavioural changes.
The diagnosis came after he went from a cheery lad, engaged in studying hard at College (where he was well-liked by classmates and tutors) to a volatile, disinterested ape, who doesn't shower, comb his hair or help around the house.
Now he becomes rather aggressive and a couple of times recently I thought he would hit me. We've always been close, especially since his dad left us (six years ago).
He refuses to take his meds and has missed most of the appointments with the psychiatrist.
Any advice on how to motivate him? Even if it's just to keep himself clean and tidy. Thank you.
