This is very serious and it is time to intervene. Next time you tell the doctor what is going on ahead of time, and ask the doctor to evaluate her based on what you are saying. Give examples and definitely tell the doctor about the calpol. This may even be reportable to social services in the UK, and you should call them and ask if it is. Also her neglect of her children and her fantasy life can be a danger to her children.

My recommendation is to call social services and tell them what is going on. Also call her doctor and tell the doctor what is going on and ask for some assistance. She may be found unfit to care for her children, so be prepared for that possibility.

In any case, you need help outside your family. Please call social services as soon as possible.

My best to you with warm regards,
