Hey there. I was looking for a bit of advice.
My husband was tentatively diagnosed prodromal paranoid schizophrenia recently. Basically, he has paranoid delusions about people photographing him, wiretapping him, hiring people to follow and record him, drug him with truth serum, etc. He has been, and is currently a good and loving man. He is caring, kind, loving towards those that are weaker than him, and very tormented from his fears and beliefs.
Recently, he has found a new therapist who has been steadily helping him to cope with day to day life, and has done wonders to bring him back to the cheerful, non-hunted man he used to be.
BUT…this therapist confirms everything he fears is TRUE. That it is all real. she tells him that he has ptsd, and that he should change our phone numbers, that I will come around to believing him. So basically on one hand he is happier than I have seen him in a long time. On the other hand. She is reinforcing his delusions, and he is starting to grow resentful that I still believe him delusional. He is in 100% denial, and it seems like she is encouraging that fully.
I know from reading posts here that this is a problem that many of us here would absolutely love to have, but I worry that this might make him worse in the long run.
Does it even matter, since delusions are somewhat permanent? He takes his meds. Should I just care about that?
Would it just cause more delusions?
It seems to drive a wedge between us, relationship-wise.
