My husband paranoia schizophrenia

Hi there I have been marriage to my husband for nearly 8 years coming this July. When I first meet my husband I didnt know he had a mental health problem. And I sure didnt know alot about paranoia schizophrenia. And still to this day I’m still learning. I’m not going to sit here and write and say are marriage has been perfect. Far from it. But what I will say is I stuck bye him though all the hard times and the tough times. God it was hard I could have walk away a 1000 times. But didnt because I loved him very much. But a few weeks ago I went out with friends. And he accused me off cheating on him. But I didnt never have never will. So he left walk out on are marriage. Left for all most 3 weeks. Then just out off the blue told me he still loved me and wanted to come back home. So I let him. I let him back into my heart which was already broken bye him. And he fill my heart with so much joy for the 4 days that he stay. Then just out off the blue got up and left again. Saying he try and couldn’t do it. Because he had the thoughts in is head that I cheated. But I can honestly say and write this when I took my vows I ment every word. I didnt cheat I didnt do anything to upset or destroy are marriage. But the part that breaks my heart is why come back tell me to still loved me then just leave. I feel so broken so useless so worthless. And very confused.

yep, you will get use to it, sounds like you know 100% what your in for, keep your mind right, blow it off, roll with it, if he gets violent protect yourself, formulate a plan for any crazy event that could happen, even plan if you get arrested for domestic violence from all from crazy stories, plan it out correctly and you might make it, good luck… on edit, I have a rule: never turn your back to an SZ and always be prepared to leave.

Hi shallcro where do you get the book from. Yours truly friend.

I ordered mine from amazon.

Part of schizophrenia is that the person can be delusional. A strong belief that isn’t true is a delusion. Unfortunately, your husband has a delusion that you cheated on him. I am so sorry that this happened. Often, the illness makes our loved ones believe things about their caregiver that aren’t true. I am so sorry that he left you again. I think he knows that he loves you, but can’t shake off the delusion. It isn’t your fault.
