Help: Prayers are needed

July 18th, 2007 at 07:32 pm

The more and more I think about my nephew the more and more I get depressed. All my life basically I battled depression so I know or some what have an idea what he is going through. He did state today that he was very depressed because he wanted to go to college and felt like he couldn't. Also the nurse told my sister today that he is facing the first stages of schizophrenia. I did some research which states the actual onset in males are 18-25 my nephew is 19. They think that he may have been facing these troubles all along and what ever he took triggered it. I am asking any one here who believes in God to pray for him so that he may pull through this. I am praying that it is the drug he took and once it is out of his system he will be back to normal. Just thinking about it puts me in tears. Please keep him in your prayers
Poor kid he ever gave any trouble and he tries he really deos but he also says it is hard for him to concentrate

    I had a friend whose mental illness manifested after taking a drug. He didn't get all the way better after that, but it would likely have come out one way or another: the drug just hurried the process.

    I know another schizophrenic who has a very good life, because his sister provides him a good support base. Mental illness is very sad and disturbing but not a death sentence, and a supportive family network can make all the difference for a mentally ill person.

    It's good you found out now; you will all be able to help him keep it under control.

    Good luck! We're all pulling for you.

    Sorry to hear about this (It's been kind of crazy and we have visitors here, so I haven't been "on")...I do hope that it's only what he took (my nephew says LSD can cause that)...and, regardless of what happens with the diagnostic, he really should get psycological help...doing drugs is generally a kid trying to escape from something...it might be his self esteem, as you say, trying to fit in, but, it has to be addressed...Right now, of course the priority is to get him out of that state...he's lucky to have an aunt like you...
    Will be sending prayers for you and your family
    ((hugs))

    Micalson, I heard the same thing and I am hoping that once what ever it is that is in his system is out things will be back to normal. I just found out that the blood work was not for the drugs but to test him for STDs. Now that is understandable but why not test for drugs if some one is seeing things or delusional to rule out evrything else

    Thanks every one
