It was only just recently that we started talking and he asked me out. So, I really really like this guy and when we started talking I know he had been in the mental hospital for being depressed and was on medicine for it.
lesbian dating in lyons michigan - Dating a schizophrenic guy
When we started dating he told me he had schizophrenia. I have a friend with mild schizophrenia and sometimes when we would hangout or stay the night she would sometimes suddenly get grumpy and annoyed with us.
A few months later I started noticing things like sometimes we'd go over the same issue more than once and he'd think I said basically the opposite of what I really did. I eventually talked with her after she got officially diagnosed and she told me that when it's silent or really quiet the schizophrenia makes up false conversations with us and often times it's use disagreeing with her and therefore she gets ticked off.
I think everyone with this issue is probably different so if someone could help me out by giving me answers I'd appreciate it. There were so many red flags for me, but I was completely blind sighted by love. All I wanted to do was make excuses for his behavior.
We've never really brought up the issue or talked about it much so I don't know how he'd react if I did bring it up to him. You have to be honest with yourself and see if you can be with this man for the rest of your life. I'm not saying he is like this, but please watch any warning signs, or red flags!
i really had strong feelings for him regardless of it.
Dating someone like me, with schizophrenia, has its challenges. What I lack in culinary expertise and concentration I more than make up for in a caring nature and sensitivity. Pregnancy complications There are all kinds of complications (and success as well as horror stories) pertaining to schizophrenia and pregnancy due to the effects of medication. 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.I am 26 and have had the odd fling here and there, but due to my illness I haven't had any real long term relationships.Schizophrenia really makes me feel isolated at times and not wanting to to face the common question"so what do you do for a living"?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. I try to explain to him that it's not what I said or it's not what I was feeling but he still has it in his mind that I did it the way he thought. Now that I have really gotten to know him and really really like him this is all really confusing. I have a 1st cousin who is paranoid schizophrenic and he is pretty much fried right now.
