Family and Caregiver Schizophrenia Discussion Forum

My partner is leaving

Is packing her things and leaving
After saying that I make her feel a certain way
That it’s because of me she is going through hell
She uses a lot of confirmation biases to wreak havoc …
She has tremendous trouble understanding me
And being understood
Because of autism…
I wish I were more skilled in communication…

She doesn’t really care to listen to me…
She is just going to do what she is going to do
Unfortunately we’ve been waiting for her medical to transfer over the other county the last 2 months
And she’s been really needing to see the doctor and psychiatrist…
It’s been really tough
And I’m terrified she’s just going to call me up to ask me to pick her up
Or I’m going to get a terrifying phone call from her
The unknown scares me with her
She’s leaving because she thinks it’s me
But she’s unaware of the tremendous amount of help I provide for her…
I wonder if she’ll realize it when she’s gone…
Too bad medi cal sucks
And ssi takes forever to transfer…

I will try and keep a close connection with her family to check up on her…
Maybe call 911 if she calls me threatening to end her life…
5150 might be helpful

I am so sorry you are going through a crisis with your partner wanting to leave. You two have had quite a journey together.

Perhaps it won’t help to fight it, but maybe to divert the conversation? Or ask where the person wants to go…and ask questions like “How will you get there” and “How will you pay for it?” Sometimes when there is no real plan or the stated plan or belief doesn’t make sense, the person will talk themselves out of their delusional thinking.
