My Dad was diagnosed bi-polar/manic depressive with schizophrenic tendencies back in 97, he was 45 yrs old at the time. He has had 2 different doctor's since then. He was initially just given depakote. He took it for awhile, constantly complaining of sleeping too much, and having no energy. Long story short, my dad is off of them again and he's having grandiose delusions, such as being good friends with the local head Deputy sheriff, and that he was going to be in a ride along program. He thinks the local police are tracking him thru his cell phone. He told me he is going to organize a union for Walmart and be the president.
Now my Dad back in the day. He was the best at his job. He built printing presses, and later became an expiditer. His driving, when he's off his meds is atrocious at best. Last time this happened I spoke up and he ended up in the mental health ward for 6months, and almost lost his house and freedom. They actually had him in a nursing home at one point.
He is out
