I am revisiting this site after a few years. I was married to a man w paranoid sz for 13 years. We have been separated for 5 years, only now finally getting divorced.
We talk regularly on the phone, and he is generally agreeable to the divorce, EXCEPT that he called me recently and FREAKED OUT. Screaming and ranting at me.(He was drinking. Not a good thing) Saying my parents are to blame for us breaking up (not true). All sorts of hurtful and angry things. He had me on the phone for over an hour. I could barely get a word in.
While this type of behavior was once a regular part of my world, I have been removed from him from some time and taken aback at his paranoia and rage.
Coming here, it’s amazing to me how many of our loved ones display the same behavior–the pacing, the yelling at the neighbors, the cursing, even some if the language they use–calling someone a satanist! Where does this stuff come from? Do you ever wonder where the dark voices, thoughts come from?
