From your query it appear that your boyfriend is having florid symptoms of schizophrenia. As he is suspicious towards you, then he can be violent also towards you, so keep yourself protected till his symptom removed.

First symptom of schizophrenia is loss of awareness that he is ill. Counseling and alcohol do not help in such cases. Take help of his family members, other friends and health care providers so that treatment can started ASAP.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
