Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hi, I'm happy to try to help you. I will need to ask you some questions to better understand your situation and help you.
Some of the very typical symptoms are audio and or visual hallucinations and/or delusions. Does she have any of these?
Are you there?
Yes, she believes people are sneeking into the house, steeling her and my mothers clothing while she my mom and dad are at home. My mother has brain cancer and is bed ridden so someone is usually home. She has a law suit going on right now and I think it's making her parinoid? She's also done alot of drugs (pills, meth & herion) in the past but she's been clean & sober for approximently 3 to 4 years (she says)? I live 21/2 hrs away so I'm not positive. Just yesterday she told me the telephone was tapped! I asked her by who she yelled and said I don't, I just know it is. She also thinks people are following her and someone may have been because of the law suit? I'm just not sure what to do? My dad and I don't know where to turn? My parents are 83 but my dad's in great shape which makes me feel better because she has been violent (with me), slapping me across the face when things don't go her way. I'm disabled with Multiple Sclerosis but get around pretty good with help from my daughter but my point is she should not put her hands on me, ever! Any suggestions of who or where we should turn for HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay- I look forward to hearing from you.
I do love your answer! Unfortunatly, she came up today for a visit without notice. I have a few more questions but I am unable right now to stay online with you without being caught! She just ran to the grocery store for me. Will check in later or tomorrow when she is not with me. I want to speak to me dad because he might have a few more questions? So far you have been very helpful but do have some more questions? Who to contact in our area, etc. I did file a police report on her but did not want to file charges (yet). She is 54 years old.Also has been diagnosed with bi-polar and ADHD. Does that make a difference?
