Folie à deux

Is mental illness contagious?

I believe it is between couples :flushed:


I was alone when my illness started…

I wasnt alone :thinking: And my bf at the time thought he had some disease :flushed::flushed::flushed::flushed::flushed: after a while i got ill :neutral_face::flushed::flushed::flushed::flushed::flushed:

So was he or was he not ill?

No he was not ill but thought he had aids somehow. :flushed: He was delusional :thinking::flushed:

Well, if psychosis happened in couples, wouldn’t you get cured now that you have separated from him?
I believe these are mere coincidences…

It is so weird i guess :thinking::flushed:

I had a relationship with a girl with sza like me but I didn’t have it until we were already close.

No, or my television viewing would have degraded to watching shows like ‘Midsomer Murders’ and ‘Bones’ as well like Mrs. Pixel does.

It is bizarre.

Glad I am moving on with my life.

Not directly. But if one person has mental illness and isn’t coping it can affect your own mental health.


Feels like some sort of horrible voodoo magic. This whole experience.
I must be wonder woman to have survived this trauma. :frowning:


Feels the same to me too

I hope you are having a nice day :o) sorry about that.

I’m okay. Don’t worry about me :slight_smile:

Reading about the link, makes me kind of worry for my boyfriend if I live with him some day.
I don’t know if it can happen to just anyone who lives with someone who has a psychotic illness, but if so, that does worry me! I guess as long as I keep up on treatment with medicine and therapy, I’ll do fine.

same thing happened with my aunt and her husband. both of them were delusional. :flushed:
