Back last year in January 2012 my boyfriend was on cannabis and had been for years but he ended up getting schizophrenia over it.
One night he put a knife to mine and my sons throat and threatened to kill us cause something in his head was telling him he was going to loose us, then few seconds he snapped out of it.
Dating a Schizophrenic was never going to be easy.
I rang the police and 3 days later he was arrested and put in jail and social services got involved.
They left 2 months after and in May we resumed our relationship and he was off the weed, was working, totally a different person. And he still is.
As he’s not my sons dad in October, when we knew everything was OK and he had changed for the better, we decided to tell social services as we wanted to move on as a family and live with each other.
And they was involved for a week and I have not heard from then until I got a letter yesterday, saying he can’t have anything to do with my son. This was nearly 4 months after we told them.
Thing is, we been living together at my mums as she’s renting her house. And we decided today we will move int together at my house and now after that letter I don’t know what to do for the best.
He’s an amazing man now.
Works 6 days a week, amazing dad and me and my son love him to bits.
I’m ringing social services tomorrow over the letter.
Do I tell them the truth that we been living together and now know we want to live at my house together or do I lie say we’re together and not living together but he sees my son while I’m there?
I’m scared of my son being taken off me.
Why is dating a Schizophrenic seem as so wrong?
My family know he’s an amazing man and know it was the weed.
He’s done groups to quit and he did it.
My family stick by him and agree he’s been punished for what he did and now he’s fine and a normal person.
Iv been with him for 3 years and I want to have a future live with him, have a baby and be a normal family.
It’s all down on social services that dating a Schizophrenic has caused me so many problems.
So do I admit we’re living together and by saying the wrong thing I get my son taken off me. Even though there’s been no problems at all.
Or lie and say we are not living together and are continuing our relationship and when my son and partner meet I’m there all the time?
