Dating a schizophrenic

Telling me to stay the ****** away from him and his friend!! Just the night before he is telling me how much he loves me. He texted me today saying "I miss you and love you Jennifer. And I just get so upset sometimes when I'm trying to explain to him that I don't know why he thinks the situation is the way it is, and when I get upset it just makes things worse. I think this all may have something to do with his schizophrenia but I'm not completely sure.

His friend and his friend's ex gets on ******** and calls me all these horrible names. I don't want to get a divorce and last night was so much fun". I doubt he saw her because she wants nothing to do with him and they were never married because she was legally married at the time!!! Like I said I haven't heard from him or seen him in two weeks.

My friend has paranoid schizophrenia and we had a little relationship when we first met.

He dumped me after 2 weeks when his paranoid thoughts came back.

He told me hes not good enough for me because of his mental issues but i reassured him that im ready for whatever comes our way. What are the odds of him having a real relationship with his issues?

This happened two weeks ago and I'm completely heartbroken. In the end he told me that he had no emotions and couldn't cry. He was in an apartment complex ( that was designed to help him with daily classes), had a job (this is where I met him, we worked together), and now had me. After being in the system for four years he proved to the courts that he was ready to have his guardianship back.

We started dating in December and he got it back in late May.

Developing trust with such a person might be one of the most difficul things you could ever do.

He has to be getting help on the side from a professional, and would need to be consciously trying to improve the relationship with you.

While you should never avoid dating someone with schizophrenia because of tabloid headlines or bleak Hollywood stereotypes, there are some things here you may like to weigh up before getting involved further. My psychiatrist always knows best So don’t try and advise whether or not to take medication, or tell me when I can and can’t call in sick. Struggle with concentration You may have a battle on your hands if you want me to settle down to watch a film or a play. I may be very tired Often medication can make me very, very tired. I may want prompting when to take medication or need support in social settings. Friends Schizophrenia can impact on social skills and I don’t have many friends because of this. Open and honest We’re used to being open and honest in our therapy and with our psychiatrist – we need to be. Sensitive Often the most vulnerable people (like us) can be sensitive to others’ needs. Generous Most people with schizophrenia that I have met have been very generous to those willing to stand by them, thanks to the stigma from others we experience on a day to day basis.

A side effect of anti-psychotic medication can mean I struggle with concentrating for more than 20 minutes. I’m disabled Schizophrenia is one of the most disabling of mental illnesses, so expect me to travel with a Disabled Rail Card because my car insurance is sky-high. I claim benefits Because I’m disabled I’m entitled to Personal Independence Payment and sometimes on benefits (though not all the time).

Sometimes he keeps saying that I get mad over things when in reality I don't. But they weren't real conversations, she only "imagined" them or whatever you want to call it. Talking it out i think would be a good idea because if you want to stay in a relationship you need to know the basics of what's going on inside his head, try to understand.
