Schizophrenia Message Board

Schizophrenia Board Index

[QUOTE=Fierysungirl]That's why I came to this board, to find answers. He feels ashamed of this disease and as if he is less than other men.
To me, he has been the most loving, caring, unselfish man I have ever met.
He is so much better to me than all of the "undiagnosed" men I have dated.

He puts effort and thought into what makes me happy and is the only guy who has treated me like I am a real person and not a sex object.

Our relationship is long distance and we really don't see each other on a day to day basis.

My concerns are, could he ever be dangerous to me? Would he have mental health needs that I couldn't meet and if the relationship fell apart, would he relapse and would I be the cause of his detriment?

I really want to be with him, but sometimes he gets so intense and needy it makes me want to run. As soon as I've had distance from him, I miss all of his good qualities that other guys don't seem to have.

Are there any non schizophrenics on this board who are dating someone with schizophrenia and if so, how did that relationship differ from other relationships?

I want to continue this relationship, I am just scared. He takes heavy sedatives. What are those sedatives suppressing? I just need some clarity.
Hey Fiery, I married a schizophrenic knowing that he was ill. I was a single mom, totally in love. I thought I could help him. That did not work out, as his hallucinations, delusions, illusions, not only affected me but also my child. We were married less than 3 years, because he became increasingly hostile toward my daughter. He refused to get help, not believing he was ill. My advice to you is let this relationship go.
Hi guys...

I just signed up here and was browsing for a while...

I am married to a man who is schizo - effective. I didn't know until he told me. He has his moments... we all do... sane or not. We've been together for four years... married for almost two of them. He is only heavily sedated medication but as long as he takes it, he's fine. I've always been there to be supportive of him. One of our ways of dealing with his condition is we sit down and talk EVERYTHING out...

Being schizo-effective or schizophrenic doesn't always mean that they are slow... my husband has a quicker reaction than anyone I know... he's also very bright. All they need is support and love.

It took us a LLLOOOTTTT of work but we are very happy. I make sure he takes his meds every night and we're alright. When he doesn't take it... it worries me. Not because I'm scared he'll lash out of act crazy but he gets sick if he doesn't take it. It takes work but mostly love.
