I completely agree.
My cousin is currently doing time for attempted murder, since being in prison he has been diagnosed with the same thing.
Since being in prison his situation has deteriorated, his paranoid delusions have got worse and he has now completely become disconnected with
I've sent him cards, photos of me and our family, begged him to let us come and visit (he has to initiate a visit) but he wont even respond. We don't
