Are there any other TBI survivors out there that have extreme paranoia? My husband is a TBI survivor and it seems like he keeps getting more & more paranoid about people wanting to steal belongings from him (us) or breaking into the house & shooting us. It's getting to the point that he is making very bad decisions because he is so paranoid, and nobody can reason with him. Example: he has a very dangerous dog (lives outside of the house) that is able to get loose whenever he feels like and I am worried about the safety of our 2 1/2 yr old daughter. He wants to keep the dog because he is a guard dog & will alert him if someone is lurking around. I feel that the reasonable thing to do is to get rid of the dangerous dog and get a guard dog that is not so viscious. (This dog has bitten people in the past & has attacked & killed our pet cats & the neighbors too) Sometimes I just don't know how to reason with him. Even before the TBI he was a little bit paranoid & didn't have the same logic that I did. If anyone else out there has been through anything like this, I would love to get some feedback! Thank you!!!
