my boyfriend, does he need help?Sat, Dec 8th 2007
Over the past 2 years my boyfriend has been talking to himself and answering himself in three different voices, he gets highly upset when things don\'t go right, and i mean HIGHLY.. the least little change angers him to the point where he blows up- the simplest task he can not complete without becoming angry and results in talking to himself when he is angry or even on days he isn\'t. he brings up past events that happened like 6 months or more ago as if they happened just yeterday..he love WWE and tells people he is now a wrestler as if he believe to be one, can he not tell the difference between tv and reality? i\'m beginning to think not.. wrestling to him is a 24hour 7 day a week thing. if it\'s not on tv he plays the dvd\'s/ he\'s told people he is a wrestler, he isn\'t though. he got angry one night because it was raining out side and blew his top- he loses his temper qucikly over things like the rain or a red light.. is this normal? i\'m scared.. he talks to his voice and looks to the side as if this voice is actually a person standing next to him.i assure you nobody is even within 50 feet of him when doing so, i asked him what he said he claims he said nothing.. please please help me i am very scared thanks
