I could include how...

Don’t Know What to Do

I am struggling with daily life in a way that I am sure isn’t healthy. I don’t have any friends and the ones I do have, I don’t even like.

My Husband Sees Dead People

My husband’s mother died 2 years ago, but yesterday he told me that he had an hour long conversation with her. He said he’s been seeing her everywhere, and that she’s trying to tell him something. He also said that’s he’s been hearing voices who are not his mother, not constantly, that are always negative or fear based (they’re lying, Run, don’t touch that). I know these things are indicative of schizophrenia but he’s...
