Hi everyone!

I took a quick read through the introductions on this forum and I must say I am glad to be joining such a diverse group!

By way of an introduction to myself I'm 27, male, living in the US but from the UK originally. I've been here 2 years now.

So... why am I here... it's a long story. To put it simply things in my life are going downhill, in a fast car. I admit one of my biggest problems is admitting I have a problem.... paradox right? But I'm hoping here will give me a place to start putting the brakes on so I can turn around and I know the first step is admitting the problem, so where better to do it than in a community that understands?

To answer the question though instead of beating around the bush, I suffer from paranoid delusions. Things have got bad to the point where I walk around either depressed or angry most of the day and take that out on other people (unintentionally I assure you all). At the moment I'm in a clear and calm phase but I know in just a few hours when I try to sleep everything will come back to haunt me.

I lay awake at night tossing and turning, and it's started affecting my relationship with my wife. In recent months we've had troubles and she has her own psychological issues (she suffers from MPD/DID) so as our relationship breaks down we've both started suffering more and more. We both are having anxiety attacks (her mostly in her sleep, I mostly at work), severe lack of sleep (we go until we can't go anymore regardless of eachother's schedules) and increasing hostility.

Don't get me wrong. I love her dearly. In my life I have never had someone who had made me happier but now that connection feels dead and it hurts physically whenever we're talking.

Phew, sorry, I didn't mean to twist everyone's ears in just the introduction :)

Thank you in advance for having me here!
