Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Your wife my be suffering from a number of emotional ailmenst including depression and anxiety. People use alcohol to self medicate, but it results in making things worse. Also is she experiencing hormonal changes?
I guess my question crossed your answer. What makes you think she is psychotic? Is she hallucinating, or delusional, and is she a danger to self or others, and is she able to care for herself. Is the gynocologist aware of the emotional difficulties?
Could you describe the bizarre, strange behavior. What type of delusions soes she have?
I had asked if she was a danger. If she becomes very aggressive, then by definition she is a danger. It is imperative that she receive a psychiatric evaluation and or an alcohol treatment evaluation as tragic things occur when people become aggressive. Were she to hurt anyone, it may be considered domestic violence which could result in incarceration. . During a calm time explain your love and concern and indicate that you understand that she is undergoing a great deal of psychic pain. Make an appointment with a psychiatrist or the community mental health center. If she is under treatment and she becomes aggressive (it may become necessary to call the police) there is a chance that they will take her for psychiatric evaluation rather than arrest her. It is necessary to take action as she may need medication to stabilize her as these things tend to get worse not better with time. I know what I am suggesting is not easy, but the alternative is considerably worse and in the meantime she is suffering, (as is the family as well).

It is unfortunate, but sometimes it is necessary for things to get wores, before they get better. Therefore it may be necessary to call emergency services while she is aggressive if she refuse to go to see a psychiatrist during a calmer time.
