Hi, thanks for your response, but how did your brother die? As a direct result of psychotropic drugs? If so, that is rare I think.
Of course, I am totally against drugs but am in a sticky situation because if I go off of them I get sick again and it becomes hard for me to take care of myself, in addition to getting thrown into a psychiatric hospital. I have been on the drugs for about four years, though in that time I have managed to heal significantly, primarily through orthomolecular medicine. I'm no longer doing that though, as I'm not so sure about synthetic vitamins.
As far as taking care of my health, I am quite serious about it, and I want to do what is necessary. The biggest thing that I've found of late that helps is shamanic healing. My hallucinations have decreased by a little bit after each shamanic session I have done, and this is after four years on the drugs. Abram Hoffer, pioneer of orthomolecular medicine, says that, basically, the shorter the time period one has had schizophrenia, the easier it is to recover. He also sees recoveries in chronic patients, however, who have been sick and on drugs for 10 years or more. So, I'm not quite sure what you mean about it being too late if I get to age 30. Do you mean the vitreous degeneration or the psychotropic drugs/schizophrenia? Anyway, my eye doctor said that the vitreous degeneration sometimes gets worse but sometimes stays the same for long periods of time (like years). It didn't sound like she was saying that it would necessarily get worse.
In terms of issues that lead to the schizophrenia, I would say that it was primarily a love relationship that went bad and the sudden death of a friend around the same time.
For the vitreous degeneration, my herbalist has said that there are things that one can take for it. I just don't know, however, if that's a cure. It would be great if I could find something that's really going to take care of it... I would like to try to cure my nearsightedness at some point using the Bates' method or something like it as well, and this would probably help cure the vitreous degeneration, since it is something that occurs in nearsighted people. But I don't expect to do that for a while, and I want to take care of the vitr. degen. in the meantime.
