ROSEBURG, Ore. _ Last year, Don Baglien’s 19-year-old son experienced a psychotic break. It was a Sunday afternoon. He picked up the family picnic and threw it over the fence. Then he started turning on every faucet in the house, dragging furniture outside and howling. “By the time the evening rolled around, he was convinced that his air conditioner unit had some kind of poison in it and was releasing some kind of toxic chemical that was going to kill him. So he unplugged it and he was going to roll it down the hill and get rid of it,” Baglien said. By Kristian Foden-Vencil, Oregon Public Broadcasting. SENT: 1,200 words.
