Dating a schizophrenic guy

11-Jul-2016 09:44

If you watch the "True Life: I'm Paranoid Schizophrenic" (or something like that)..

he was very open and honest with me from the first day of our relationship that he had it.

Any advice on how I should bring up his schizophrenia to talk about it? This is my experience with a guy I was dating with Schizophrenia. When I first met him he told me he had a guardian (his guardianship was taken away because he had a very bad head injury that left him with Paranoid Schizophrenia). It's very hard to be in a relationship with someone that has this illness.

Hi Guys, I have an issue with my condition:schizophrenia and dating.

He is perfect, extremely handsome, smart, charming etc. Our relationship is developing and it is now blatant that he is head over heels for me, I am too.

We're still together 13 years later and have four kids. I find I have the same problem with meeting people now. My eldest is now eight, and yet in spite of her having been through nursery and school here I only really ever got to know one other mother. One thing I've been working on with my keyworker is the getting to know people thing.

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.
