I want to start by saying I have this awful feeling in my stomach and my anxiety is way up there, and I think it's because as soon as I type some of what I go through on a regular basis, it might become more real to me. I've been "sweeping it under the rug" for 9 years now. I am pretty sure my husband has paranoid personality disorder. It hit me when I was doing my psych rotation in nursing school about 5 years ago. He meets well over the needed number for criteria, if not all 7.
I think I'm also very nervous right now, because as I was reading through some of your threads and stories, I realized that many of you are divorced. Is there anyone out there who has found a healthy way to cope? I love him so much and he is a terrific guy when he is not accusing me of various things. We still have fun together, we take trips, we run a business together... We also have a 7 year old son. I'm feeling so torn lately though, as it is getting worse. I'll save details for another time. I'm just glad to find a group of people who might just "get it"
Ugh, mental illness is so frustrating!!!
Thanks for being here.
