    friend needed for son with Schizophrenia Disorder in Riverside

    If there is anybody out there that can help me with my son on help coping with Schiophrenia...he feels he is all alone.

    Jo, I'd like to know how old your son is, my husband has schizophrenia and so does my mom. If he is in their age group, maybe my husband can talk to your son. He is not alone. My husband is 31 yrs old and his father was an alcoholic, schizophrenic, and bipolar, so he realizes and understands the potential disaster schizophrenia can lead to if not appropriately taken care of. He felt alone too. I think he still does. I myself am 24 and am expecting our second child. I continuously have fears of seeing my children growing up with this disease. I can't imagine how hard it is for you or your son. I don't get online often but if you reply, please let me know if you're interested discussing this topic with me.
    thank you
