The doctors prescribed Kisule with anti-psychotics and other medications to help stabilize his mental health. Within a week, he was able to recover from his acute state of mental distress and was released from the hospital.
Kisule was shell-shocked by his own actions and was broken at the realization that he had destroyed the most important organ of his body.He refused to speak to anyone and was reluctant to accept help from his family and friends. He was in denial that he had done this from his own volition and could not understand why he had obeyed the voices' orders.
He was filled with immense guilt and shame and could not look at himself in the mirror. He was also apprehensive of the societal judgement and stigma towards his condition.
