Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
It sounds as if your wife is suffering from paranoia, a type of mental illness that requires a diagnosis from a psychiatrist and medication to help her symptoms. All of the hallucinations and concerns for her safety that you describe are symptoms of this illness. The difficulty with this illness is that the person who is suffering from it often does not recognise that they require help and is unwilling to seek advice, hence it is left to family and friends to try and get them there.
You can find details about paranoia on the web, try www.thesite.org/healthandwellbeing/mentalhealth/otherconditions/paranoia
You can search for support groups in your local area for paranoia, as often the family and the carers are the ones who suffer most whilst trying to keep the person safe. They can tell you how best to handle her delusions. If you go along with them, she is less likely to alienate herself from you. It doesn't sound as if she is safe to leave alone - you need urgent help with this.
Talk to your GP/supervisor again and insist that she needs a referral to a specialist for her mental health, specifically paranoia. Explain about her delusions - they will have come across this before. Stand your ground as you have before.
Thank you so much.
I read the link, fits like a glove.
I don't understand why it's so hard to get help for someone.
After yesterday's event, I have done more damage, and added to the problem.
Whats worse is, I have lost all respect for the medical field.
At least you have given me hope and a direction on which to go.
I know my wife will never be OK, but, I can get help to better understand.
Thank you so much for your time and response,
