I’m writing about my boyfriend, we have children together and last year he started acting differently. We don’t have a diagnosis, but anyone with sense can see something is not right. He’s always been a tech savvy kind of guy and at first I didn’t think anything of it. He said someone was hacking his phone, shortly lead to him believing our home was being tapped into, people watching us, ect… He began recording and video taping everyone in secret at first, his suspicions grew bigger and bigger. He can’t hold a job, he can’t make friends and now doesn’t have any after accussing them of being apart of hacking him. It’s ruined our relationship and I will be looking for a new life with me and the kids soon. I feel guilty, but it’s effecting my own mental health. I’ve wrestled him to the ground for his own safety, I’ve tried to help him seek treatment, I’ve tried to help him see clearly, but he doesn’t think anything is wrong and now strongly believes that I am trying to hurt him and apart of a conspiracy. It’s a fight daily, as he doesn’t trust me to even go to the grocery store.
I know that was a lot!! I’m sorry if it’s a bit all over the place, I’m just at my end. I don’t know how to get him to seek treatment. I don’t know what’s going to happen to him once I take the children and move. I don’t want to take them from him completely, but right now I believe it would be best, especially for our oldest. How do you convince someone who believes nothing is wrong to get help?!
