My wife's father killed himself when she was a teenager. She was recently robbed at gunpoint at work and told that she was going to die that day. Her ex-husband beat her badly. In other words, lots of trauma. Paranoid Schizophrenia runs in her family. I have begged and pleaded with her to seek help. As soon as I begin to suggest that she needs help dealing with her emotions she explodes. Her children are affraid to be around her and want to get away. I am in the middle of divorcing her. She is unapproachable. I feel very strongly that she will never be happy if she doesn't get help. Like many other types of illness the hardest part is getting someone to look at themselves to see if they are contributing to the destruction in their life. I hope you can help. Is there anyone that can help me to help her?
