Yes i do know what you are going through.. my son has had this for 17 years. Its a slow disintegration isnt it? He has ocd but that improved as the paranoia developed. The social anxiety is dreadful. He thinks that everyone is talking about him, and judging him. Hardly talks about any other subject, but himself. Feelings and emotions are dampened right down now, just rants about "People" talking about him. No support from doctors.... no diagnosis other than ocd and social anxiety disorder....paranoia being treated with anti physcotics but no improvement.
He has no friends ,no social life, and no full time job. He has had two out of character violent
outbursts in the last 12 mths. The thing is look at the services? Are they failing us? I googled our
entitlements from the mental health teams today... shocked. We havent recieved a quarter of the
help listed in the guidelines. We are paying for private help.... no we are not wealthy people
but desperate parents who have been failed by the system when trying to get help for our son.
Good luck ...sorry life is tough for you too. Only those who live with it understand. mxx
