Wife with Schizoaffective Disorder
Hi everyone. My wife has been dealing with her condition for 4-5 years now.
Probably gone on for longer but her 1st major 'episode' was 4-5 years ago. She is currently in an institution for the 3rd time. This time she seems the deepest info her psychosis. At the moment she seems to hate me. She is convinced she wants a divorce and has even refused to see me? I don't know where this has come from. We have a good relationship the same ups and downs any couple will have. She has become fixated on other guys in the past due to her illness. She was fixated on her boss for a while and lately met a guy on a chat forum. I have tolerated it as I have out it down to her illness. I was shocked that she was so against
Me though. She will not even respond to simple texts. He feels on this arts very real. She understands why she is in hospital and that she is not well but she is convinced that in someway I'm evil. Is this behaviour 'normal' given her condition? I know being fixated on other people can be an issue but I've not read anything like I have described. She is even telling her best made that she is in a home for women who are beaten. Everyone who knows her and me know that is not the case. She is seeing her parents at the moment and seems ok with them.
I'm not sure how to handle the situation. I've stayed away from the hospital for 3 days now, just to see of if will improve. She requested to see our son tomorrow but not with me. I just feel so helpless.
I just want her to get better!!
