Re: As a family member of someone with schizophrenia...

I disagree. It's like saying you bought your friend a wheelchair, showed them how to use it, they used it for a week, then went back to demanding to be carried. It's one thing when the illness is undiagnosed. It's another thing when a person is receiving treatment, then stops.

Re: As a family member of someone with schizophrenia...

While I understand what you are saying here, as someone that also has a mother that suffers from schizophrenia I disagree. The issue is that someone with schizophrenia, form what I understand, almost never realizes that they need the "wheel chair". Imagine if someone kept demanding you take a medication that you didn't believe you needed, you probably would resist taking it. Unfortunately that is the nature of the illness and to get upset at someone that is resisting help is like getting mad at someone with cancer because they wont stop their cancerous cells from multiplying.

Re: As a family member of someone with schizophrenia...

I disagree too. It's more like saying you bought your friend a wheelchair, they used it for a week, then took the wheels off and wore it on their head for a week, then decided it was bugged and threw it in a skip, then insisted it was a spaceship transporting aliens to earth to pollute the water supplies, then refused to drink any water for a week, then blamed you for destroying the world and its ecosystems.
