I really don't know from where to start, so please bear with me and help me please. Thank you so much in advance.
My husband has had a terribly traumatic and stressful year, which lead him to an experience he had that made the glass overflow... In August he thought he was exposed to a fatal disease and ever since he's been worrying and going crazy that he has it. He's done all kinds of tests and everything turns out well but he keeps believing he has a disease. He keeps finding things on his body that are perfectly normal (like dry skin, morning white tongue, etc.), but he thinks the are "symptoms" of the disease. He's been to all kinds of doctors and they all say he is in perfect physical health.
Nothing can convince him that he is well, though. He acts like he has lost his mind. He is firmly convinced that the problem is not in his mind but his body. We finally managed to drag him to a psychiatrist and he was diagnosed with psychosis. He was given meds but things are still the same... I hate him being on meds and I hate this for him... my heart just breaks despite how he hurt me...
I just wanted to see whether anyone has been through an experience like that and get all the input I can. I am willing to share more details if needed. Please write back. I need help, support, advice, encouragement, anything you can offer. Thank you!
