Hello, this is my first time posting. I’ve been reading stories on here and doing research for several months and still not entirely sure what’s going on…
Long story short, I’ve been with my fiancé for 6 years & am convinced he’s a schizophrenic. We have a one year old daughter & older son. He’s always had negative thoughts and doubts of himself, nobody likes/loves him, always the victim, etc etc. No one & I mean NO ONE likes him at work, no matter how many crews he’s put on. But, me being the woman I am, “I can love him.” - “I can make him feel love.” - “I can fix him.” Accepted the challenge. We’ve had a pretty good relationship, not perfect but we make a good team as providers for our family & we genuinely love each other.
In September he started showing signs that I obviously knew were strange, but honestly hoped it would just “go away”. He got a new job that month and apparently this boss was just over the top mean. Not sure how mean the man really is though, according to my fiancé everyone is evil. The stress really got to be too much and he went from doing weird stuff to being psychotic. People were following him(the whole city btw), people were watching us, he will have conversations with the tv, yelling one minute and laughing the next. His mood fluctuates from extremely happy (almost kid like) to angry & highly irritated, telling everyone to “shhh”. Then the next minute he’s full on exercising and working out in the living room.
Last week he left for work and ended up 3 hours away at a hospital because “the people” put an antenna on his car and told him to just keep driving. “The people” finally took the antenna off his car and it wouldn’t work anymore (really he just ran out of gas). He was wandering up and down the highway when a highway patrol stopped him, could clearly see he was in distress & took him to the hospital. Thank God. When he called me I was relieved he was there & said I’d come the next day (it was midnight). His aunt & uncle went and got him, convinced the hospital to release him so they could put him in one closer to home, dropped him off home to me and said “good luck”.
He was fine for a few weeks and now he’s back to having convo’s with the tv, actually punched it and shattered it today because it was saying what he was thinking. He’s Either agitated or very happy. He’s confused, disoriented & hallucinating. The Bluetooth in his car somehow controls him to always be in traffic, people following him, and conversations with himself. I convinced him to go to the hospital today but when we got there he refused to get out of the car and said he thought we were just playing. He says he’ll get help but he really doesn’t want too. He says he thinks he needs help but doesn’t want it. I’m kind of at my wits in. I mean if I can’t help you if you don’t want to help yourself. Especially if you know there is a problem. I’m considering baker acting him, but am in fear of the outcome. I’ve heard terrible stories. I don’t want him to feel like I’ve abandoned him. I try to constantly remind him that I love him and am only trying to help him. Any advice? This def sounds like schizophrenia right?! Sorry, it’s much longer then I intended lol. This is the first time I’ve ever talked about it, guess it feels good to get it off my chest.
