My husband developed Physcotic depression 6 months ago, he had a couple of weeks in a phyciatric hospital when I could no longer cope at home due to my mother dying. He seemed to be improving well but every time he attempted to work he just couldn't cope with any pressure so I've got a full time job while he stays at home. We foster so that was going to be his job but we did some respite care for a baby for just one week and it was clearly too much for him, he was so tired and kept saying he couldn't understand how I'd done it for so long. When we were doing this respite, he had his Physcotic medication reduced but not his anti depressants. He has started having visions again of horrible faces at night. Not all the time but quite requently and he has been anxious and worried about silly things that really don't matter (like being unable to lay a patio). I'm so worried he's slipping backwards but he doesn't want me to call his metal health nurse and tell her, he just us he's got a handle on it and he feels fine today. What should I do? Should I phone her? Should I drag him to the doctors? He's just reduced his anti Physcotic meds again (on doctors instructions) but he hasn't told them of these latest visions. I'm so worried. Will be ever be back to normal again? I miss my strong and powerful husband 😞
