It sounds like he's going to need a restraining order against her, and also to start the process of having her charged with stalking. The lady has a screw loose and sounds delusional. She has mental health issues and needs treatment.

You won't be able to make her let go. All you can do is to protect yourself and keep your boundaries. Get what legal protection you can - this will only get worse when the divorce is over.

Borderline personality disorder

Read the link above and it will help you. Protect yourself - she won't be changing any time soon.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
