Paranoia intense thoughts
« on: Thu Jun 29, 2017 - 10:19:26 »
Hello, I've had months to think over this topic and researched different views and solutions. My husband was stricken with intense thoughts of people harming him, paranoia. It is  very mild at this point for now, started out really intense and effected his quality if life. He did quit a job unexpectedly in the last 6 months which led him to take work 1500 miles away and we are in the process of moving out there. He is convinced there is nothing wrong with him. My question - is it still God's purpose to make him the head of the family if some of his thoughts aren't logical or real? Do  I intercede? Obviously I have no doubts if I felt threatened physically but he is not like that. He is pretty logical in most areas currently except for just a few involving a system of intense thoughts of being harmed. I'm a stay at home mom and all our needs are currently met with him working. I've had thoughts of maybe becoming the soul breadwinner and giving him things to achieve at home (not watch the kids of course, but maybe renovate houses or fix things he is a hands on guy) to maybe take the pressure of work off of him but I feel like God's good model is still to have the woman at home so I still pray and prefer to be at home with the kids. I'm even planning to homeschool. I guess I just want wise counsel from people who may have encountered how the church or church body should deal with mental ailments like paranoia.

Has he sought medical advice on this?

We saw one man who can diagnose and 3 therapists. He did not like the doctor that can diagnose. Does not like medicine. Basically only trusts me.

You are not a doctor though and he needs medical help. He may need drugs as well.

I presume you came to a Full-Time Ministers forum because you were expecting a full-time minister to answer you.   Your husband needs pastoral counseling and prayer.    I'm not trained in that nor am I an ordained minister so I won't try to tell you what to do beyond this.  I don't think anyone here is qualified to tell you that your husband needs medical care.
