Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I believe I can help you with your concern
I am so sorry that this man you are dating is exhibiting these symptoms, I can understand your concern about continuing the relationship
Hi that would be great
These symptoms are consistent with Delusional Disorder Paranoid Type or possible Schizophrenia since some of the delusions would be considered bizarre (e.g. Zombies), which obviously increases anxiety if you have this level of paranoia
Most likely without proper treatment of antipsychotic medications and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) he will continue to get worse and not better.
Also there is no guarantee that the medications would be effective for him and stop the paranoid thoughts and associated anxiety
So the odds of a successful relationship with this man would be slim
That was my thought. Thanks
