My husband started to smoke spice a few years ago, where he would often regurgitate and complain of stomach problems but after several tests they found nothing wrong.
I began to put two and two together and realized it was the spice.
He soon stopped smoking, and all his complaints diminished.
Several months later, he began to use again and the symptoms began to reappear.
I was able to help his symptoms with spice use, but it didn’t seem to matter much.
As he continued his use, I thought it would take a physical toll on him but to my surprise it was mental.
One night he walked in from the balcony after smoking a spice joint and said: “damn, you snuck that nigga out quick!”
He had imagined I had a man hidden in the house and snuck him out while he was on the balcony.
From that point on, he had one hallucination after the other to the point I had to leave for two week.
He imagined I was hidden in the closet. And the story gets worse.
After I returned home to weeks later, I was not able to convince him that it was not true.
Some of the hallucinations that didn’t seem logical – like the man that came out of the closet and went under the bed – he seemed to dismiss those and believe the ones that seem more logical.
Today, Oct.16, 2015, I had to leave my home again because of his agitation, emotional detachment and his refusal to accept that spice has got the best of him and has destroyed our marriage.
