My boyfriend is 25 years old and just suddenly has become delusional. He is a musician and is claiming that the music he has recorded has the answers to life encoded in it . When other people listen to it it is just acoustic guitar and some poem reading that he hasn't changed in years. He also claims he has been touched by god and that he is a magician with magical abilities. He believes he has some type of power that allows him to control peoples actions and thoughts. He takes objects and waves them in the air in front of our faces and asks if we like it, do we see now, can we understand, how does it make us feel. Then he calls himself a magician and he believes he is hypnotizing us. He also carry s around risk cards from the game risk that have missions such as conquer north America and Africa on them. He performs his waving in the air trick and tells us that is our mission and then states isn't that just amazing. He believes that people are understanding what he is saying and he believes he is helping people see the world in a new light when really everyone thinks he has lost it.

I don't know what to do everyone is concerned and afraid to be around him and it has only been 4 days. He doesn't care who he tells or what they say. He shows his tricks to everyone he has even sat out side the mall with a hat and done his trick s to get money.

He has had a substance abuse problem for a long time mainly alcohol and drugs when he can get them any kind. He also had a childhood full of sexual mental and physical abuse. He recently tripped mushrooms on and off for a few days and then he started to become delusional. He now claims he doesn't need drugs or alcohol anymore. He seems so much happier now. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY BOYFRIEND???????????? ANYTHING WILL HELP!!! Im 6 months pregnant and very scared!!!!!!:mad::confused:

  • I am so sorry for what ur going through, I dont really know what to say to help u.............It sounds like he has overdone it with the drugs to cause this, & really needs help, but if he doesn't realise this or refuses to go for help i dont know what u can do other than talk to his doctor (i do hope he has one ?) Regarding childhood abuse, well, quite frankly it can take years upon years to work through this, and sadly many turn to aclohol & drugs & other destructive behaviour to try & block this out, it needs to be addressed sooner rather than later but alas the only one that can do this is ur boyfriend. As u are 6months pregnant the only thing i can tell u is to, look after urself & ur baby, being involved in this (& i know u love him) but sometimes the only thing u can do is walk away for now & insist he gets help & hopefully it will get through to him. sometimes people have to hit rock bottom before they seek help......You can not let him take u & ur baby down with him. I wish i could give u an easier solution. Look after yourself & baby. Kind regards:)

  • It may well be a schizotypal disorder of some kind, possibly induced, or exacerbated by drug abuse. He would probably deny that he has a problem. I have my doubts that he would seek, or accept treatment voluntarily, so I suggest that you discuss your options with a doctor.

  • It sounds mostly drug related, but the real problem is that he can become a danger to himself or others while he is in a delusional state. Get help. It is especialy important for you and your baby. Marionstar

  • I think his brain is going through a process being that he use to use drugs ands no longer uses any more. He'll be fine hes found *****t and his flesh is trying to fight that. Hes in a transitional period and hes going through the motions.I hope u know *****t yourself because u took on a big responsibility when u agreed to be in a relationship with this man knowing his past.Its like this....U have to know how to care for a mental child before u adopt 1 GET IT??!!KEEP YOUR MIND ON *****t and all things shall be added unto you... meaning the knowledge you need to get you through any situation.Judging by the date you wrote this your baby is here now and i hope you have found a stable environment to raise your child in.A GREAT FLOWER STARTS WITH A GREAT SEED!

  • Your boyfriend sounds very ill. It may be the drugs, it may be alcohol related, but combine this with a history of physical and sexual abuse, your boyfriend is definitely in need of an intervention. Your boyfriend is currently delusional, and no matter what the cause may be, he may pose a danger to himself or to others. He is a danger to himself if he can not remember to eat, bathe, talks indiscriminately and inappropriately to people (showing everyone his "tricks" - some people are offended by this behavior and can become violent towards the mentally ill person), is unable to care for himself, or if he becomes angry when others don't agree with his perceptions. There are things that can be done to help him. Call your local crisis line and ask if they have a mental health crisis intervention team. Some cities have this available. A crisis intervention team will come to your home and talk with your boyfriend to determine whether or not he needs hospitalization. If your city or town does not have a mental health crisis intervention team you can call 9-1-1 and ask for the police. Tell them that your boyfriend is currently quite ill and in need of medical attention. Be sure and tell the police whether or not your boyfriend has any weapons on his body, police want their encounter with your boyfriend to be safe for everyone concerned. The police will then take your boyfriend to the nearest emergency room for evaluation and treatment. Once in the hospital your boyfriend can be placed on a 72 hour physician or police hold. The 72 hour hold gives doctors time to diagnose your boyfriend and treat him if necessary. This does not give him a police record. Being ill is no crime. Also don't worry about the drug thing. Doctors and police only want to get your boyfriend to safety, not charge him with possession. You may also call 9-1-1 and ask for an ambulance to take your boyfriend to a hospital. Call your local mental health association for information. They can tell you about the options available in your town. Whatever you do, keep yourself and your unborn baby safe. With proper detoxification from drugs and alcohol, the doctors will be able to tell whether your boyfriend is suffering from an undiagnosed mental illness or just a reaction to the drugs and alcohol he has ingested. Don't be afraid to get him help.

  • He sounds like someone i once knew quite well. Everything to a "T", sweetheart, no joke!!!.... ***** **** *****icky. Your boyfriend has Narcissistic Personality Disorder, big f**king time!!! This man i once knew believed he had a mission to save the world through his music. All acoustic ** string..... A special song played for over a decade..... The *********. Still waitin to see if he can actually break through into the music scene..... He has lived a life of multiple abuses; and at times has chosen to walk both paths, of perpetrator and victim while teetering betweem them. He is very mentally unstable. He suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder caused from multiple accidents and family abuse. He cannot hold a job or career for very long, "family" gets in the way. He glamorizes being involved in crime. He compulsively lies........ He most likely has more than just NPD and PTSD. Possibly some Bi-Polar, Tourette's and OCD too. You are pregnant? How much younger are you then your bf?
