My husband was diagnosed with psychosis about August 2010. Im only taking it seriously now because he hasnt. This is my second day into researching psychosis so that I can help my husband. I plan to make another appointment with the psychiatrist we met once last year and I'm making sure he takes the Risperidone he was prescribed last year but didnt actually take until now so I dont even know if its still good to take. The reason why Ive left it this long is because I thought my husband would get on top of it like normal, but now we've had a good talk he prefers that I give him his meds because he says sometimes he has voices telling him not to take it. I find it hard rationalising whether his stories are his mental illness or he is being a drama queen but I think its because he's been like this for such a long time and Im use to him being this way which I know is not normal. I want to be able to understand this more.
