oh! I was thinking they meant the person lost was a parent and a child.
:waitasec: hmm I didn't catch that.
I just want to know that the parents of the victim's were
visited and told in private...
from the newspaper or fb?
It is still on the Republican America
Agreed. Sadly some like Ms. Long will face this when her son is an adult or when he is "stronger" than her. That is the question none of us can answer how do we deal with these issues? We can't "lock" them up and we can't make them take their meds. I think sadly this has no real solutions.
You deal with a violent person by calling the police even if this person is your child.
The police can lock them up and make them take their meds if they are sent to juvi or jail. Once they are medicated/sedated at the jail and they are not experiencing extreme impulse control problems/rage/delusions/hallucinations, it becomes much easier to medicate them every day.
I read it as... he visited two families and one of them (a family) lost both a parent and a child. So AL's family would fit... unless I'm confused (which isn't a stretch sometimes!)
Educating family members about the "red flags" of upcoming psychosis/mania/suicide/and etc... can reduce the numbers of "too lates".And if they show no violence to themselves or others? Until it's too late.....?
I'm so sorry, my friend felt like he was "cured" one day and then the next he felt like he was a "zombie". It did not in his case become easier to medicate. He ended his life because he could not live on the meds nor off the meds. I so wish you were correct and maybe you are in most cases, but in my friends case it did not become easier to medicate him in any way.
My question still stands...what do you do when they refuse to take the meds? I have first hand experience with this. My friend on meds felt like he was "cured" and then sometimes he felt like he was "non-emotional therfore not a person". He decided to end it, thankfully he took no one else with him.
How do we medicate one who doesn't want to be medicated?
