@pat1 Hi pat1 and welcome to the forums. I am a parent of a son with multiple problems including schizo.  I agree with @patientpatient while your son is in the psych ward it is a perfect time for you to have much needed time out. You must do this as your health both mental and physical needs protecting for not only your son's well being but yourself.


You son is 46, well and truly an adult, so you have been going through this for along time my heart goes out to you. Your son is in a safe place. It is safe to back away atm and give yourself time out.


I am tagging @Dadcaringalone who is a great bloke who has been there with us.


You are not alone. greenpea xxx
