I've long wondered if this type of delusional thinking stems from self-esteem issues, at least in some people who have no physiological reason. "I'm the target of a conspiracy means I am a special person"; "I know something only a select few know"; "I am very clever for having seen past the cover-up"; etc. That's quite the ego booster. Plus the longer it goes on, the more of an ego blow it's going to be to consider "I am wrong".

I’m no psychologist or anything, but my counselor recommended I read a book called “I am not sick. I don’t need help”. Anyway the author did a lot research. His conclusion is it’s all part of the illness. What looks like ego, or denial, or stubbornness etc is all pretty much part of the illness

I just wish I could leave her.. But she's so dependent on me she would end up homeless or worse, unless I pay for her rent and bills...

It's getting worse: now she feels she's being attacked.. while in the car!It's like people in cars that are driving close to ours are aiming their beams or microwave weapon at her

At what point do you consider having her involuntarily committed? Here in Michigan that’s possible if they’re a danger to themselves or others.

same here in NY. Unless she's a danger, I can't commit her. Just a matter of time, I'm afraid.

Gah, has it been a year since my last post?

No improvements to announce. She's getting worse.

He did not get treatment for the disorder. It's been 2 years now and though the specific delusions have settled. The side effects were anxiety and depression which have cost him and me so much. We were together on and off for the last two years after the incident and some patches were great. I thought everything would be fine. But last night he told me he doesn't want me in his life. He wants me to move on and doesn't love me anymore.
I feel so robbed and betrayed. I stayed through it all. Lost my mental health to the extent that i had to go for therapy. I love him so much. I'm still ######6 holding on to this dream that he'll start going for therapy and realize that he only thinks he doesn't want me because of his problems and he actually really loves me. He won't talk to me and I'm so ######6 lonely. A part of me resents him so much for ruining a good relationship and ruining himself and ruining me. I know it isn't completely his fault. But he refused to get help and his parents just let it go. I'll resent them for the rest of my lives too. I tried so ######6 hard. I just can't believe why i want this person who hurt me so much so many times so desperately.
