I am a mom with an adult child who is living schizoaffective disorder and bipolar. My daughter quit taking her meds June of 2013 and by November was full blown psychotic. My hands were tired trying get her help, especially since she did not want it. My daughter was hearing up to 4 voices 24 hours a day, and getting worse. 4 times she was admitted, but each time she came out worse. The voices controlled her to the point of burning herself. My daughter went missing for 13 days. ABC 15 news in Phoenix aired her story and she was found two days latter, alive and now is in treatment.
