Re: Husband has Mystery Illness, and my Dad died....
I am very convinced now that it is paranoid schizophrenia. He refuses to get help, I, his mother and brother have tried to convince him to get help, and he denies everything we say. I have tried calling his psychologist telling her what's going on, and all she did was call him and ask if he would like to come in for an appointment.
He is so paranoid now, all conversations he has with me revolve around how I'm keeping something from him, I know what's going on, just won't tell him. He tells me how he can't trust me, how I have the weirdest smell he has ever smelled coming off my hands, and I purposely rub it on all the door handles of our apartment, and try to rub it on him when I touch him to do something to his health. He buys only bottled water he breaks the seal on, and won't eat anything I could have tampered with, and hided his toothbrush from me. He tells me how I've single handedly ruined his entire life by turning his whole family against him (who are very concerned, and still love him)
Now he's rented a car and drove away to some location he won't disclose to me, has been gone for 3 days now. I am seriously considering starting the divorce process, because with his paranoia, I see this being a long road of denial and I am exhausted by these constant attacks and accusations.
