Spouse Newly Diagnosed. Sad and Confused...Help

Postby LadyQ » Sun Aug 12, 2018 4:50 am

Hi, thank you all for sharing your journey's!

My husband was recently diagnosed with paranoid delusional disorder Persecutory type. This has rocked our entire world. We have had so many ups and downs due to his illness. I didn't know that many of the issues we faced in the past were due to his illness. There was a time where he "knew I was cheating on him" by the way I scrolled on my phone. Has shown up to work functions unannounced. Made a huge scenes about me going out with friends so I stopped wanting to go etc. Now, we are dealing with police following him, phone tapped, house bugged, etc. This has been going on for about a year so he says. He told me about 6 months ago and he finally agreed to see a doctor and they prescribed 25mg of seroquel to start.

I have a couple of questions if you all would be so kind to answer.

1. He keeps a lot of things from me, so I feel very unsure about what is really going on in his head. Is this normal? I think he thinks Im part of the "network", but he wont say.

2. Are people with DD dangerous? He hasn't been violent with me recently but we have had some very terrible arguments in the past that got physical.

3. Will he ever be free of the delusions? He believes them so strongly and I believe, from what family members say, he has been experiencing them for over 20 years.

I don't feel like I can take this, but I want to try and be the wife Im supposed to be.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
