This night, I will not forget. My husband called me with urgency to come home quickly. Our adult son was recently diagnosed with Schizophrenia. He struggled with non adherence of medicine, quite common in people with brain disorders, like an injury, not because they are defiant, but a manifestation of the illness called anosognosia. Mental illness came on suddenly, two years of behaviors we did not understand, which escalated. It is a thief that stole the very person we knew. We are still grieving.
