Hello! I have been dating my boyfriend for 2 months and 2 days ago out of nowhere he told me all kinds of things he doesn’t like about me, accused me of talking behind his back with my friends and broke up with me. 2 hours prior to this he was telling me how much he loves me. He left my house and won’t talk to me, won’t take my calls and won’t respond to my texts. What do I do? I love this man so much and didn’t know anything about schizophrenia until yesterday. I’ve been doing a lot of reading. How do I get thru to him? I don’t want to lose him and if I would’ve known it was the mental illness I would’ve dealt with the situation differently. Please help me figure out how to get him to come back to me.
Did your boyfriend tell you he was diagnosed by a psychiatrist as having SZ? It’s usually treated with antipsychotics. Is he taking meds?
It’s best to not argue back as that seems to reinforce whatever dilusions they are having at the time. It is so hard to live with someone with this disease.
To be honest,at this point I would not stop my husband if he wanted to leave. I am so done being accused of things I have not done and being made to feel like I’m the worst human being ever.
