> Judy, you say you've been dulusional. Is this part of another disorder like bipolar or schizophrenia? Or do you have Delusional Disorder? I wish my husband could see the neen when told, but he only believes his delusion and in that place, meds are not neccessary. I'd like to hear more of your and your husband's experience.

Hi Hab,
My delusional experiences have been part of my bipolar disorder- most often when manic, but at times during depressive episodes. Once treated with an AP, or even with no treatment once the episode is over, I no longer have delusions- which makes me strictly bipolar 1 and not schizo-affective. I guess I thought your husband had schizophrenia because of the paranoid aspect of his delusions, but yes I am familiar with Delusional Disorder and understand that's what he has. For a very long time (maybe 5 years?) I did not believe or rather trust other people's views that my thoughts were messed up rather then theirs. When I am delusional I still REALLY believe my thought processes (like I have extraordinary powers or am god-like- very manic), but I have learned to really trust my husband and pdoc and so I listen to them (not happily, but I do). This took work on my husband's part with meeting with my shrink and learning how to deal with me- very calmly and matter-of-fact- he tells me I need to speak to my shrink and when I do I listen. Again, I have to emphasize that this took years and I can't imagine how difficult it is when it's happening all the time (like with your husband). You must be a very strong lady. take care, judy
