After a few weeks of trying to take care of him, endless hospital visits and GPs my boyfriend disappeared and was actually 'missing' for a few days. He eventually walked into a police station and asked for help. He was taken to hospital and detained under Section 2 of the Mental Health Act. I think he is schizophrenic. I've seen him once (at the weekend) and he wasn't very communicative. He has been having paranoid delusions about me but did agree to see me and in some small ways reassured me that he cared. Despite all this I only really want him to be well so he can choose his own path, so shouldn't really be selfish to even think about how I feel but it hurts. Today I called him and he said he didn't want me to visit again as 'we're not together'. He hasn't been responding to anyone on the phone I had to call the hospital phone to get him to speak to me. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with him, but his mother and his brother have had mental health problems in the past, and now him. He has no where to go when he leaves hospital and they will not let him go to live on his own. He was living with me before this. I do not think he should be with his mother as she has always brought him down and he and his brother do not get on despite obviously loving each other. Help!!!!! I really need to talk to someone who might know how I am feeling and what is best to do for him, and for me.... If I just walk away (I'm not sure I can) he will have to stay in hospital indefinitely, but doesn't seem to want me to look after him anyway!
