Let me start out by saying that I myself am not schizophrenic. My brother is, and it's very hard for him and my family. One of the problems he has is anger. He gets angry for reasons that sometimes he doesn't even know. It tends to be when we go out to eat. Every other week or so, he comes over to my moms with me and we all hang out. When it comes to dinner, sometimes we'll go out to eat, other times we'll stay at home. When we go out to eat, it's always Friendly's, since there's a Friendly's real close to my moms house. The last 2 times he went there, he got angry. The first time he got angry at one of the waitresses, for a reason that he didn't even know about. Me and my mom were both confused to. I think I remember him saying that he thought she was talking to us (since she's a familiar face to me and my mom), but wasn't talking to him, or maybe felt angry at him. The next time, when we went to eat, there were 5 teenagers sitting down behind us. One of the guys got up and went to the bathroom, and then sat down again. When we got home, my brother said he got angry again, this time because he thought the guy could read his mind, or was mad at him. He noticed that when the guy got back from the bathroom, he sat on the opposite side, so he was facing away from my brother and I (he was originally sitting so he was facing my brother and I). I'm wondering if this happens to anyone else, and if so, how I could help him.
