Our expert says:
Well, paranoid schizophrenia does quite often lead people to behave strangely, and others may indeed think of them as 'crazy". What you describe sounds very like paranoid behaviour. And it is indeed really difficult for spouse and children to cope with such strange and difficult behaviour. I'm not aware of a schizophrenia support group ( though I strongly agree there needs to be one ) - maybe some of our readers may know of one. He needs, absolutely, to be under the care of a psychiatrist, either privately or through the nearest medical school or large state hopital, as medication can help considerably ; and whoever his shrink is, should know about any such facility or service within reach of you.
