Thanks, Athena. The injury was a slight concussion more than twelve years ago. He spent a few hours in the ER getting scanned and so on, but recovered so quickly that they sent him home. Of course, he was manic at the time, and I'm sure that even a little brain swelling didn't do him any good. However, once he conceded he had a problem, he did see a psychiatrist and counselor and take medications for about three or four years. During that time, he was stable and productive, got a Master's Degree, taught school, and was really delightful --no sign of residual head injury.
Unfortunately, he stopped his medications and has become ever more delusional, and at this point he is frankly psychotic. If there's hope and help for him, he'll have to actively seek it. Nothing we can do.
