Sounds like she is experiencing paranoid ideation or paranoid delusions. This can be a result of a mental disorder or a transient symptom of over stress. How long has this been going on?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
about two weeks

She needs to be seen by a psychiatrist. I know she does not have insurance. Are there any funds available it would probably be around $140 for the visit and additional for medication?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
ok thanks .
Expert:  Mark Manley replied 4 years ago.
Do you have a psychiatrist in mind? Let the office know you are paying cash and ask them if they can discount the fee for cash. Shop around on the phone if you like. It has to be a psychiatrist or other medical doctor that is comfortable prescribing psychotropic medication.

Best of luck to you and your daughter.

Sincerely,
Mark Manley
