Can you provide more context? This is definitely a difficult situation, but any context would help.

Is this a loved one or a family member? Have they refused medication in the past? Is their paranoid schizophrenia a recent diagnosis?

Diagnosed a decade ago. There are instances where they will be compliant and fine but then they self medicate knowing it's against medical advise which causing manic episodes and the delusion that they have healed themselves and no longer need meds.

Sounds like someone needs to spend some time at a facility


Yes, my mother was diagnosed late in life when I was in my early 20s. Please feel free to DM me. I’d be more than willing to answer any questions.

I suggested the facility for proper medical evaluation if they don't like their meds but they just want to blame everyone in their life for the issues they have instead of internal reflection on their actions affecting their condition negatively. Thanks I will DM yes

Has anyone (or anyone you know personally) quit their job because your agency required return to office and you/they just can’t do that again?
