I’m crushed

My brother called me up a couple of hours ago sobbing.
My nephew is having suicidal and homicidal thoughts, apparently he’s been having these thoughts for a long time.
My brother is taking him to the hospital.
They are also looking for an IOP for him.

My nephew also is having auditory hallucinations.

I feel so bad for him.

My brother was scared and asked me if it could be schizophrenia.

I knew that it could be for a long time now.

I warned my brother about my nephews drug problem.

He is a chronic weed smoker.

God help him.

Thanks @Bowens
I warned my brother about how cannabis is a trigger for psychosis.
But he didn’t listen.

Hey @Wave sorry your nephew isn’t good but hoping that treatment will help. That weed just is toxic to some as most of us know.

Yeah I’m hanging in there.
My brother and father are taking it very hard.

It’s not a big surprise for me though.

I suspected that it could be schizophrenia when my nephew came over our house 3 months ago rambling incoherently about aliens living among us and ufo technology.

He also mentioned that he hears these strange noises in his room when my brother doesn’t hear them.

Thanks @Cragger

I’m so sorry, @Wave. How old is he, if I may ask?

Hi @Happy_H!

He’s in college, he’s 20 years old.

The same age I was when my SZ hit me.

He was doing so well in school too.

The kid is a genius.

That’s really sad. He’s so young, so much to live for.

Can you please keep us updated on this? I’ve gone through stuff with my daughters, and it’s hard. I’m here if you want to talk.

You obviously saw this coming. It’s a shame, but there’s nothing you can do until someone crashes it seems. There would have been no convincing me otherwise when I was psychotic

I tried to calm things down for my brother.
But I know first hand how much his life and my nephews life is going to change.

He had big dreams for my nephew.
Dating, big engineering career, busy social life etc…

Hopefully one day he’ll be able to achieve these things but it may be a long road.

It sounds like he’s got a lot going for himself. He’s a very good candidate for recovery

I hope so @Cragger but he wasn’t dating but he did have a lot of guy friends.

He was always a bit off as a kid.

Always anxious and depressed

It’s good that your nephew is going to the hospital. This must be pretty scary for him. I hope he’s OK.
