Dear Maddock,
My heart is saddened by your son recovery history. The one thing I can tell you is to NEVER give up. You are the only ray of light your son may have right now. Recovery is a slow slow process. My son was first diagnosed at age 20.Can't tell you how may different drugs, doctors & therapist we have gone through......it boggles my mind!!! Now at 34 he is stable, has found medication that keeps him somewhat in balance but he does struggle everyday...God love him.
I do believe the brain can heal itself......I have seen my son so sick that I could not even image that he might improve. It takes a whole family to help and it is exhausting......I always try to remember how bad it must be for him when I am feeling overwhelmed myself. Please don't give up. Find support for yourself. I will be sending positive thoughts your way.
