My husband was diagnosed with an episode of major psychotic depression 7 months ago. Completed out of the blue. Doctors said depression likely caused by major stress at work leading to a psychotic episode. He was in hospital for 2 weeks. Discharged with an antidepressant and antipsychotic medication. For a month after his discharge, he was anxious, wouldn’t step out of the house, had intermittent persecutory thoughts.
7 months later, he sees a counsellor every two weeks and is basically like his normal self. He left his job back in April
(Same time as the episode) and is now looking for a new job. He’s back to his usual self..., but still has underlying fixed delusions. He normally mentions it in a state of stress, eg if we have an argument otherwise he’s okay.
I guess I just need some advice. Has anyone else dealt with this? Will it ever resolve?
