Might be a silly/dumb question, but I really don't know.
I am talking to a childhood friend in the hospital, and I was told he has Bipolar & Schizophrenia, but I received his first letter and he did not say that, he says he's ''locked up'' because someone laced something he took with PCP and he was going into peoples homes he didn't know. I feel I would be disrespectful if I was to ask him if he has these disorders.....he says he keeps getting time added for getting into fights because of the people in there (such as one male who was masturbating in front of his room, he punched him after he wouldn't leave when asked)
If he has schizo, does he understand he has it? Or can he be in there simply because he was doing ''mental'' things, such as going into people's homes, because whatever he took was laced with PCP?
UPDATED = My mother is the one that told me he has both these disorders, so i'm guessing his mother told my mom that. He is in a mental hospital. Coud he possibly be in there because he really did go into people's homes because of PCP and not because he has a disorder? Would it be okay if I asked him? What are the signs to watch out for to see if he does? I'm writing him through mail, and maybe start by phone later...
