Anyone had any delusions about their partner? And them cheating or doing anything bad? I've spent almost my whole relationship with my current girlfriend believing on and off that she's cheating on me with demons or aliens as she is in on what's happening around me.
I had got past this 2 months or so ago and it was reducing but for some reason it's happened again while im on tablets. It's really annoying as some psycotic symptoms don't seem to be clearing. I'm so confused all the while I just seem to get better and then worse.......

I used to think people were cheating
by having online affairs
that became more important to them
than their relationship with me

there was no evidence for this
and I constructed it all in such detail

My partner has the delusion that I have cheated on him, his intense paranoia came out of nowhere when he quit cannabis! He started taking anti psychotics and is now reducing them after a month believing there is nothing wrong with him. If anything since starting meds his thoughts about me have become stronger! He has made some life changing decisions, ending our relationship, selling our house etc!!
It's truly heartbreaking!

I've been there, I'm sorry to hear its been troubling you. Are you separated now? It seems so real at the time but I'm much better with this delusion now I'm on medication. Its took some time but some symptoms have stopped for me, it was cannabis that started my girlfriend paranoia too, hopefully it won't last and you we be okay.

Yes we are now separated and our home up for sale! He is utterly convinced I have betrayed him and says he will feel this way forever! I wonder every day wether or not he will suddenly realise and now he's tapering off his meds, I wonder what will become of him as how can he act this way without something being seriously wrong with him?

That's a shame, he shouldn't be coming off his meds he obviously doesn't realise he's ill. I was like that once but the meds have helped me. There's not much you can do other than hope :(
