Othello syndrome

I’m sure I’m developing this problem, i keep accusing my wife of absolute nonsense from her past. I know in myself it’s not true, but still keep doing it.
has anyone else experienced it.

Hi @Y_am_I_here,

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve experiencing these issues in your relationship. Based on the information you’ve shared; it sounds like you may be experiencing delusions which is quite common among people with Parkinson’s. Delusions can make people suspicious and mistrusting of people which can cause problems in relationships. We have more information on this here - https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/hallucinations-and-delusions-side-effect.

With that being said, it’s important to get advise on this from your GP, specialist or Parkinson’s nurse. Our helpline and Parkinson’s local advisers are also here to answer any more questions you may have and can offer further support.
