Schizophrenia Message Board


Schizophrenia Board Index


Hi
I am 23 years old and am 8 months pregnant. My boyfriend who was committed to a psych ward in Jan. this year came out with a diagnosis of depression and psychosis. First what is the difference between psychosis and schizophrenia? The more that I hear about schizophrenia the more it sounds like what he is going through. Anyways, he called me saying that he is through with me and basically broke up with me. I had alot of animosity against him because he left me pregnant. I have been trying to make peace with it the last couple of weeks and my eyes have opened to how manipulative he is and how bad this illness is affecting him in such a short time. Then he called me tonight from the psych ward telling me that he was just calling to see how i am. But, the whole conversation was about how he parked his car out in the middle of nowhere and tried to kill himself. And then went on and on bashing his parents who have only helped him out. He says that he cannot go on with all the lies. The only one that has ever lied is him. My question is what do I say to him. I do love him and care about his well being and I know that he is not well so I try not to take it personal that he left me and is always concerned about himself and his problems and never about me or the pregnancy. But, he calls when he is down and out. I don't know what to say when he tells me about all the delusions and hallucinations because he believes they are real. It is so frustrating. I can't just walk away because I will be having his baby in 1 month. So, I will have to have some contact with him. Can someone tell me what to say to him because I have realized that telling him it's just him isn't helping. Help! Sorry so lomg...
