Dating a woman with schizophrenia
Ten months ago I met my girlfriend(now-ex), it wasn’t love at first sight or anything like that, but I did fall in love with her 2-3 months later.
In such a situation the first thing you need to do is gather as much information about the illness as you can.I know he had hallucinations and was hospitalized 2years ago, but he wouldn't tell me anymore about what happened, and I don't want to push him for more information as I think he's embarrassed.I also know he takes strong meds for his condition.After 3 months came the false accusations of cheating on her and me wanting other women at work, in the mall, restaurants etc., which none of it was true.She said people were accusing her of being a pedofile and she had dreams about this as well.He's a very optimistic man, very motivated and has a good job.
He's also very athletic and is extremely intelligent.
Though only an estimated one percent of the American population suffers from schizophrenia1, it can be a terrifying experience, both for those suffering from it as well as for their friends and families.
If you find yourself dating a schizophrenic person or suspect your date has the condition, here are some things to keep in mind.
I could not order her a cup of coffee without having to take it back, because she could see dust in the coffee, I saw nothing and this became quite embarrassing however I would get her a new coffee.
She had to inspect every pack of cigarettes to see where they were packaged because they were being poisoned.
She told me for 8 months that she was molested by her father as a child, then 2 months ago she said that it never happened, so did it, I am confused?
