My son

Postby looby143 » Sat Nov 10, 2018 3:24 pm

Hi. Exhausted and confused. My son has been in hospital for psycosis. Has been put on Olanzapine. Was doing well. Out of hospital for 5weeks so positive. I took time off work. I've been back at work for one week and he's is back on canabis. He is under the Early intervention team but no sign of support worker for another 2 weeks. Back to square one. ??????? What to do????

Look after yourself

Exhausted makes exercise hard -and maybe you never did much anyway - but it helps and acts a reserve

Go for walks
Learn to chill
Self-medicate with wine - if it works

Maybe try and do some stuff with your son - I have no idea what your relationship with him is like but can you do some activity together
Tell him it is to help you
Walking - a pub at some good enough distance
Get into a boxed set on netflix together
Cook together

Or ??

Tell us more
Trying to help and be supportive to others on this forum is one of my attempts to reduce my own depression. Getting ourselves out of our own head circles is usually a good thing to do. Maybe try it yourself
