Hello, hope everyone is well today! I am not sure if this post belongs on the delusions forum or this one but here goes. I have posted a few times in the past trying to help my husband and i am again feeling helpless and not sure if i am helping him at all. He started hearing something about 2 & a half years ago when he was outside. He has always said it was people talking and that they were watching him and talking about him. About 11 months ago he started hearing them all the time even when he was inside. He now can understand what they say as well. He has been prescribed Abilify but won't take it like he is suppose to, I think he has been throwing them away sometimes. He lies to me and his doctor about taking the abilify and about hearing the voices. He says he isn't hearing them but i am 99.9% sure he is still hearing them. He always says the voices are real people and they can even hear his thoughts and see everything he does and they are out to get him and that he doesn't have any privacy because of this, he has all but stopped showering, He lays on the couch all day and sleeps. I have had no problem doing the things around the house that he is letting slide because he is sick, but it has been almost a year now and i am beginning to think i am making it to easy for him to sleep and do nothing all day. I try to talk to him but he won't tell me what's going on. He won't talk about the voices besides saying they are real. He knows i don't think they are real but that i believe he hears them. I don't know what else to do. He has believed this for about 3 years now. I don't know what else to do. Is this ever going to end, is he ever going to be the same person i married 21 years ago?
