Dealing with the Mentally Ill is driving me crazy.
A few years ago my ex-hub started showing signs of PTSD. He proceeded to refuse help and make my life a living hell for a couple years include an affair with a coworker. I had to get a no contact order when he wouldn't leave me alone. Since my divorce I have tried to have as little contact as possible with him. He has now been diagnosed with several other issues. I had not spoken to him in 6 months. In my mind the person I married died when the mental illness took over. His behavior, attitude and personality changed so drastically I couldn't correlate the two individuals.
Now he has started contacting me like we are best friends. It is driving me nuts. Sometimes he is the person he used to be and other times he is a complete stranger. I had never had any previous experience with mental illness and it has definitely opened my eyes to a whole new realm. I don't know how other people are able to handle this. I really just want to run away.
