Help. I just had to have my wife emergency evaluated. Age 64. Married for thirty years. She has been having Hallucinations of kids and animals in the house, kids in the yard etc. She is cutting up pillows, comforters and furniture etc. pulling the stuffing out thinking there are cats in them. This has been going on for the last seven days. For the most part, when she sleeps, she carry's on vivid conversations with herself, or me if I talk to her, her hands twitch, and sometimes raise up in the air. She usually sleeps most during the day, and is up all night. I have to chase the kids out of the yard, or house. She called 911 and the Sheriffs office came. No help there, they said call again if another problem. A few nights later, after spending a few hours running up and down the street and thru the house at 1am yelling and looking for our youngest son age 27 who is in Canada. She again called 911 and reported him kidnapped. I have been trying to deal with her the best way I can, pleading for her to go to the ER. Been a long history here, and I am stressing out. She had me video the imaginary kids in the house and yard, and I did
. The ER evaluated her and discharged her, they never talked to me. I had to request to talk to the doctor, and pleaded to them to look at the tape to tell me I can leave her in this state safely. I took my wife home and went back to talk to the Supervisor on duty with the same results. I am at a loss. She knows whats up, knows she pulled the wool over there eyes, and even got them to believe I was trying to have her committed and am abusing her. I had no problem getting a Emergency evaluation from the court, based on what I am seeing.
So, am I safe to leave her alone, while at work, it seems to be getting worse, how do I know how to handle the delusions so she does not snap, do I pretend to see what she is seeing ? I am not sure what, or who would be best to help me ?
