My husband doesn’t like me to be on the forum because

Hmm… my ex gf cheated on me too. I left her.
Guess what, I found a girl who loathes cheating with all her heart. And we trust each other.
I think you need to have a talk with your husband and let him know that his jealousy and insecurity offend you.

I dislike myself just for posting this, and will probably take oxygen out of the room, but I hope it has nothing to do with me trying to help you a lot the other day, and showing internet machismo…

Sometimes I feel like a counterpart to your narrative, but it’s probably a false equivalency. But that’s what gets me taking a healthy interest right or wrong.

I’ve said gender stuff on here, and you haven’t given up on me… additionally.

It’s just the timing has me paranoid that I mattered in a bad way.

I hope I don’t need to. I’ll keep talking to him about it though. I really like it here.

No I’m ok… I can put air back in the room too.

Idk maybe I shouldn’t have said anything. You’re valuable though with all your contributions on this site.

sad to hear he thinks like that. This is support place i’d say, not a place you go looking to date people.

I hope you stay too =)

I had this same problem with my husband in the past @ZmaGal. Some years back I nearly left the forum because he was upset I was talking to other men on here and wanted me to leave. But I didn’t - I started coming on here in secret and then later when he found out he was fortunately ok with it again.

I had to explain to him it’s like a normal face to face support group in a room - there’s males and females - I’m not alone with men in the room or private message men on here. So he was ok with it.

@ZmaGal you can tell him the moderators said if we catch anyone hitting on you, we will ban them because it is very against the rules.

I’m glad your husband ended up not minding. That’s good. And it is like a regular support group but better

Just say to him its peer to peer support - and a lot of us need it as the access to anything other than just meds is fairly scarce for a lot of people unfortunately.

I guess I’m lucky then since I have group therapies and psychotherapy once a week with a licensed Certified Social Worker, not the psychiatrist. I see him rarely.

I have a psychiatrist who I see every 3 months. Therapy was through Covid, and all on the phone pretty much.

Now I have had the sessions that’s it.

Have a case worker, but he doesn’t listen to me at all, and doesn’t do what he says he’s going to do.

All I have now is meds.

Here in the UK I think a private pdoc appointment is about £350 from what someone else told me. Even then, if they diagnose you with something, it doesn’t count unless it’s done by the NHS - which can take years for ASD for example.

Just some rumours I have heard, none of them that great to be honest.

With the Social Security Disability benefits I receive, I have government Medicare insurance for the elderly and disabled. I pay around $146.00 a month insurance premium. There is a 20% Copay for psychiatric services. My psychiatric care provider is a charitable, not-for-profit organization that only treats people with severe and persistent mental illness. They waive paying the 20% Copay.

You have to meet their admission requirements and be admitted to the program. They don’t take everybody. That’s why I have to participate and use their services. I don’t want to be discharged.

I was homeless when I was admitted in 2008 on indigent funding. I later qualified for disability within three months and my case manager found the apartment I currently live in.

I left because of my wife. Same reason. She says this is social media and was reading all my posts before I stopped posting. I haven’t posted in a while. She won’t leave me alone with my cell phone for two minutes.

I have to leave it downstairs when I go upstairs to go to the bathroom. She is sleeping now.

I am not cheating or doing anything wrong on my cell phone.

And she is still hot for her age. I don’t know why she is being like this.

This place has helped me. I am the only schizophrenic I know.
