Dating a woman with schizophrenia

28-Jun-2018 03:59

Alot of people are scared of the word schizophrenia and naturally want to build some trust before revealing my condition.

I'd like to hear from anyone that feels the burden of schizophrenia and perhaps any advice in the dating area.

They need that little extra support to make it so that little things roll off their shoulder.

There is no shame in seeking treatment or medication.

Hi Guys, I have an issue with my condition:schizophrenia and dating.

But before he spoke with her he told me he was concerned that if he told her about his dysthymia she would reject him.

A friend of mine recently went off of his medication for chronic dysthymia, and it was a disaster to his relationship with a woman he was dating.

This has been part of a pattern of on-again/off-again with his medication for some time. He was very despondent and seemingly even contemplating suicide.

Unfortunately, the side effect of the medication was that he gained about 10-15 pounds. He split up with the woman he would be then dating. He suspected that she may be cheating on him after she canceled a date with him.

He took the canceling of a date to be a very personal affront to him and disrespectful of his time.

I even noticed his road rage was less frequent on medication. He and this woman were doing just fine for about a month.
