    Did you find out if it was actually drugs? Because it sounds like schizophrenia.

    Meth can do that - without a relapse, if memory serves.

    Hmmm. Is there something you are not telling us?

    Not yet - he will be incommunicado until tomorrow morning - I'll probably go visit him mid-morning.

    It can, up to a year or more after the fact.

    It's almost like he can't cope with getting out of the gutter.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Or make simple decisions. When I suggested he go to the library to do some job hunting on their computer, he went to the vestibule (in the Church) and just stood there for 20 minutes staring out the glass door. When I asked him what he was doing, he said, "I don't know what to do".

    Another factor, there's a certain hotel in town that has special rates for the police department and local mission - so they can hand out vouchers to people who need a night or two indoors. The problem, of course, is this pools all the druggies and vagrants and ne'er-do-wells in the same place. Some of the people he associated with at the motel were people the police actually WERE watching, which adds to his delusion that HE is being watched.

    well if it is drugs it could be hard to kick the addiction. Once he had money to spend, he might have just been too tempted. And if it is mental illness it can't be helped either. Even on meds it can sometimes rear it's ugly head. But schizophrenics tend to go off of their meds because they either think they don't need them anymore or because they make them feel fuzzy.

    Either way he needs help, probably professional medical help.
