I dont even know where to start, am at a total loss here as I am watching my 19 year marriage be distroyed by this distroyed by this disease. At lease i think its the disease. My husband was told he had graves disease about 5 months ago. He had to be taken to the emergency room for what seemed to be chest pains. They admitted him and did all kinds of tests (sorry i do not know which tests or levels or anything). Since then i have had to sit and watch as he spirils into a irrational mental releam where he hears things and sees things that arent really there. He believes I am out to "get him" and that everything i say his a lie. He thinks i am sneaking around and doing things to in his words "make him crazy". All of which is not true. We fight all the time as one can imagine and I have left the house cause im scared someone is going to get hurt. He almost acts parnoid sciztso(sorry for spelling) I dont know what i can do for the man i love very much. He wont stop no matter what anyone says to him. He refuses to tell his doc the entire story about how he is feeling and seems to be self medicating which seems to make him even worse. I need answers that iam not really finding as i read online about this disease. can graves cause such things as dillusions like this or anything like i have discribed? Will this ever stop or am i doomed to watch my poor husband decend further into this mental reality he has made up? What do I do to help him? I feel so horrible since i left, like i ditched out on him but things have gotten violent at times and i just cant take the stress off fighting all the time and being accused of things i am most certainly not doing............Anyways thanks for reading this and thanks for any info in advance
