I did everything I could to save our marriage, to help him with his medication and to help me because it was affecting me and I was the one that was getting depressed, I couldn't believe that my dream husband, the man that I choosed to spend the rest of my life was treating me so bad to the point that I was miserable everyday.
One month ago I decided to leave him after he telling me several times for one year that wanted to get a divorce because he didn't like the marriage life and didn't want to be with only one woman.
He moved in with mom for the time being because it became to much for me.
We are only 25 and been married for about a 10 months.
I met him long time ago and back then didn't know much about this illness, he seemed very nice, suportive, loving, intelegent and mentaly stable.
Though he was on medication and didn't show any signs of violent or unstable behavior I couldn't see a reason not to start dating him.
You have done everything you can to help support him.
Ultimately it's up to your husband to take ownership of this illness and work on his stability. I have educated my self and started therapy since he has been gone. I have a good job right now but I am wondering if I am going to have to leave that job to care for my husband or what is the best course to take.
My husband's illness is destroying my feelings for him.
I have read posts from others that talk of their cheating spouses.
If you know that ur partner has schizophrenia get therapy, you need to learn how to take care of yourself before you start taking care of him. If he wanted to make his wellness a number 1 priority and stop taking recreactional drugs to self medicate, we would not be at this point.
It was wonderful being with him but I don't know anymore what is to have a healthy and happy life. I'm sorry to hear your husband wasn't on board with his stability. After many years of trust being diminished, the only logical solution was to start making decisions that put my kids and I before my husbands.
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
