    Request for my Friend Aaron and his son Joshua

    Aaron has been a friend of mine for about 10 years and I've come to know his family well. Last week his son Joshua began acting different, very hyper, yet disconnected. It would seem to be better, then worse. Friday he asked me over to see how Joshua was acting and immediately noticed a huge change in him. I told him if it's not drugs he needs to see someone pronto, because something is not rite with Joshua. Saturday he was much better, but I could tell he was still not his normal self. Tonight I had gone to see my Granddaughter sing with the city school choir at one of the large churches. I had my phone off and received a message from my wife that Aaron was absolutely beside himself with anguish. Seems today Joshua took another bad turn. At their pastors suggestion they took him to the ER, ran testing and they called the mental health evaluators. Joshua (22) has been involuntarily committed for psychiatric evaluation. The whole family is a wreck because they can't believe someone can be declared a ward of the state and taken away by the police. My wife and I are both in healthcare and have assured him this isn't something that's done lightly, but it is SOP, and the mental people are trained to see things we don't, he needs help. I had tried to prepare him Friday that that Joshua's age is a prime time for a psychotic break, but no one wants to hear that about someone they love. I spent quite some time with Aaron tonight reasoning, praying, and reassuring him that God's hand is in all we do and face in life. I'll ask you all to lift these folks up to God. I know there are many who read these prayer request like myself that don't post your prayers on the forum, but raise them just the same. Thank you all ahead of time.

    I have noticed here of late that there always appears to be the right person in the right place to always help lately. Reaffirms my belief that God is always all around us to help when needed. Prayers sent for the family of Aaron and Joahua.

    Father God. I lift up Aaron and his son Joshua to you this morning. I pray that you will be with the doctors and give them guidance in their treatment of Joshua. Guild them and use them as your tool to bring about healing as needed here. Be with Aaron and build him up as he goes through this with his son. Be with the whole family and give them the strength and comfort they need. You God can do all things and we trust you in this matter. I pray this in the name of your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    This may be a blessing from God Almighty, in that Joshua gets help and get what is needed to get him back to his normal self. Left untreated, this could be tragic. God help and bless this family.

    You can tell the family that the current generation of antipsychotic medications are little short of miraculous. If they find the right one for him he can resume a normal life.

    I will, of course, be praying for his and the wisdom of the psychiatrist he will be seeing.

    Update, Joshua has been in a treatment center and received the diagnosis of bipolar 1. He's begun treatment and is improving. The family(Aaron) has been able to visit him and have the situation explained to them by the medical staff and are doing much better. Thank you all, again!

    The whole family needs to pursue education about what Bipolar disease is. I do this in my practice routinely. As soon as they all understand what they are dealing with the better support for him they can be.
