I dated a friend who was diagnosed as a schizopath.
I did not know this until 3 months in and even then he told me he was a diagnosed schizophrenic but that he wasn’t really, he was being gang-stalked for being the grandson of Whitey Bulger.
Then Aliens started communicating with him along with his ancient Viking “blood relative” who referred to himself as Redbeard.
Within a year I knew I needed to get out of the relationship, because he was never going to get better if I was still in his life.
It took 4 years and a restraining order after a violent outburst to get him to leave.
I hope he is getting better and is doing well. I hope he has stopped using his medications incorrectly and stopped using various drugs.
I hope he is treating his wonderful, amazing parents the way he should be treating them. I hope he is being honest with his therapist and psychiatrist.
I hope that his mental illness is never a badge that prevents him from doing great things and having a career.
I also hope he is as far away from me as possible.
