WHY can't he just be normal?

My husband is about the maddest madman you'd care to meet. Just now he's going through an insomnia phase and *everybody* is wrong, or stupid, or bothering him. He is deeply paranoid. Falls asleep on his feet. Becomes furious if I try to get him to his chair or into the bed. I walk around, catching the lit cigarettes he drops on the floor when he falls asleep standing up. I'm coming to the end of my limit. I want to get in the car and get out of here!

Try to see if you can persuade him to go see his Doctor and maybe get something that he can take prior to bedtime for anxiety or insomnia but not sleeping pills.  Anything in the "pam" family of anti-anxiety medicines will not be addictive and should help him to have a full night's sleep.  He obviously has too much on his mind.  My Father had this problem for a very long time and is now sleeping better and feeling better with the medicine he got from his doc.

Obviously you cannot force him to go see the Doctor or consider taking medicine, but you can just suggest it.

I do think if you can get out of the house and have some quiet time for yourself might also help you.  It sounds quite unfair for you to have to shoulder his behaviour all the time.  I hear that you are fed up.  Likely you do not want to have to resort to leaving him in that state.


Good luck & my prayers.

Right, medications might help him. Or better yet consult a physician or counselor that can advice proper treatment for his condition. Try to convince him that he needs help. Above all, you should show him your full support no matter what and always lend your ears to listen to his problems or frustrations. This is the time that he needs you the most.


Wishing you well.
