Kinda OT, Haven't been around, prayers needed!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I'm hoping I can catch up on some of the posts today, but the last few days here have been absolute hell for me & my family. The baby & I are ok as much as we can be, but my husband is not doing so well. He was diagnosed with schizophrenia several years ago, but has been off medication & doing well for over 4 years now, I have been with him over 3. He lost his job last summer & I think things have really gotten to him lately as far as depression goes especially since he has been looking for a job hard core, applies for nearly everything imaginable, but doesn't even get an interview. I think the depression really hit him this week because my temp job ended however I was able to apply for jobs & secure 3 interviews this week. I think that threw him over the edge. He became suicidal the other night & I called the police because I was scared to death. They took him to the local mental health unit, where I'm still awaiting any information as to what is going on. His mom & I spent all day at the hospital yesterday, but he isn't even in his right frame of mind to talk to us, it just kills us to see him like this. We think that his schizophrenia is coming back. I'm totally devestated & lost. If you are a praying person please pray for us.

mama. I am so sorry you and your family are going through this. Mental illness is a real disease and can be really really scary and devastating for family members. I hope that your husband is able to get the help that he needs and hope you can get some answers from the mental health people at the hospital soon. I truly hope things start looking up for you guys!!

Thanks so much, I'm so scared right now, more for my baby because I want him or her to have their father in their life.

Schizophrenia is always there. There is no cure but fortunately there is treatment, and he has gone to the right place. Please consider continuing treatment in the future to prevent episodes, especially in stressful times like this.

I know that it is one of the scariest diseases in existence, and it is so hard to understand. You are in my prayers!
