i feel like i’m taking over the forum and posting a lot so i’m sorry if i’m always writing these long-winded topics! but my boyfriend actually brought up something that i wanted some input on.
he always has negative, paranoid thoughts that he says randomly pop up in his head. things about the people in our town caring about him in some negative way, everyone thinking he is a rapist or an evil being of some sort, people thinking he’s mean to women or wanting to take him away and beat him. he thinks i’m doing unthinkable things i’d NEVER be doing (orgies with my mom and her friends, flirting with old men, having sex parties at work etc)…
and he always says they don’t seem true and he tries to believe me, but he’ll say “why do i have these thoughts if they’re not true? why do i think these things if they’re not even a little bit real?” and i always answer jokingly, “because you’re schizophrenic.” but i have no other explanation of why THESE thoughts are always coming to him.
why the thoughts about me? why the thoughts about the people in our town? why thinking there’s a huge conspiracy happening or dragons coming to earth etc? what makes people think certain things? why are his paranoid thoughts about these things? what makes certain thoughts more prevalent?
