I've joined as my husband has schizoaffective disorder and I'm a little overwhelmed at the moment. He is in denial over his diagnosis and often stops his medication. At times he has lied and said he has taken it even though he hasn't. Just before we married a few months ago he had a severe psychotic episode. It was touch and go wether the wedding would go ahead or not. During this time he said some very hurtful things to me which have made me lose trust in him. He cannot remember saying these things. To be honest this has been playing on my mind a lot and is now affecting our relationship quite badly. Does anyone have similar experiences?

Different, but the same

Hi and feel welcomed.

People who have a mental illness(es) and people whose mental health is dealing with them have something in common very much. The storyline is different, but ends up the same as somebody(s) can relate.

I hope the marriage doesn't end by the new battle you two are fighting but strengthens the commitment.
