Hi,. thank you for writing to us. My name is***** a diagnosis is impossible to give without a more thorough face-to-face evaluation. I can tell you that your wife is experiencing delusions. Delusions are false beliefs about the world around her and are often connected to someone experiencing "psychosis" where they are out of touch with reality. People having delusions will not easily recognize that they are not true and often, trying to tell them so will not result in any understanding or agreement on their part. Delusions can be connected to thinks like PTSD (she has a history of trauma), Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Major Depressive disorder, or Delusional Disorder. They could also be drug and/or alcohol induced or the result of a medical condition like a head injury or infection.

In a case like this, your wife is likely going to need medical intervention to stabilize her thinking and get to the root of why she is having these delusions. If at all possible, she needs to be seen in a psychiatric emergency room or by a psychiatrist at the earliest opportunity.

I am here to chat more if you;'d like. I am sorry she is experiencing this.
