Natalie and I wanted to share our story in the hopes it may help other families from the heartache, and hopeless feelings of despair when one is suffering from a disorder of the brain.
From December 2016 to February 2017, at the age of 19, my sweetheart of a daughter, Natalie was admitted into 4 different hospitals and placed on various psychiatric medications: Depakote, 10 mg; Geodon, 20 mg; Seroquel, 50 mg; Ativan, 1 mg; and Zyprexa, 20 mg.
Each hospital admittance was preceded with emergency room visits, requiring sedations when necessary. It became an unbelievable experience of what was happening with our daughter. We didn’t know where to turn with a diagnosis of schizophrenia.
