Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello I believe I can help you with your concern
I am sorry that your husband is exhibiting these symptoms, I can imagine how distressing this is for you.
May I ask, for how long has he been exhibiting these symptoms?
About 2 years now
And during that time has he been hearing any voices at all that you can tell?
No. Voices. He believes he sees evil things people do to him
Okay, well it sounds like your husband has a disorder called Delusional Disorder Persecutory Type
Here is a link to describe it in more detail
This is a very serious psychotic disorder, but it is treatable. Although your husband has to be willing to seek help and go to intensive therapy
In addition, this link is good too
What next for us now.advice
Well I would make an appointment with a psychiatrist as soon as possible for him because his paranoia and persecutory thoughts will escalate and he could become violent if he believes that his life is in danger, remember in his mind he thinks everyone is against him
It would be difficult to get him to see a mental health professional, but try to convince him and say that you will go with him.
If he does become violent or threatens to hurt others or himself, then you can call 911 and he will be placed on a 72 hour psychiatric hold where he will receive treatment
Is there anything else I can do to assist you today?
Thank you very much
Okay, well I want to wish you and your husband the best of luck with everything and if you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at anytime
I hope I provided you with excellent service today
Yes you did. Thanks
