Divorce

I've been reading through the posts here, and I noticed that just about everyone with a spouse with delusional disorder is divorced, or going through a divorce.

Is this because of the disorder? Does it have that high of a divorce rate?

I asked my husband, and he swore he would never leave me no matter what (Suuure...) but he did say "You don't understand how frustrating it was..."

how to get help for dd brother

Pretty sure my brother has DD. There's no way in hell to get him to go to a doctor...he trusts no one and it seems to be getting worse.

Forensics

Hi All,

I am really wary about starting a new topic about psychiatric forensics, but it may help others in the future and it helps me to talk about the process... so here goes!

Our first session was Tuesday morning when the doctor met with myself and my wife. The psychiatrist is a very sharp, no-nonsense kind of guy who won't let you make vague statements. He demands specifics and details. I have not yet ...
