Our marriage counselor has tentatively diagnosed my husband with schizoid personality disorder and has described it to me as a flaw in a diamond, in that he will never be able to "get better" even if he wanted to, just like it is impossible to remove the flaw from the diamond. He said in the event that husband does want help, he could help him become more socially acceptable, "teach" him the right things to do and say but it would never be intuitive for him. He asked me if i had ever seen a monkey drive a car, i said no, i haven't. "Well, that is what we could do, teach a monkey to drive, teach your husband to respond properly". Sooo...according to him my best case scenario is a monkey who can drive a car. I'm not happy in this relationship and I know in my gut the end is near but do i owe it to myself and my kids and to him to get a second opinion as far as his diagnosis?
