Hello. I am new to this group and have some questions. My mother n law has been showing signs of some time of mental illness which i believe is paranoia. She refuses to acknowledge there is a problem and i am concerned. For about 3 years now she has been writing notes. For example: she will tape a note to an ink pen and claim the ink pen was intentionally drained ( meaning someone took the ink out on purpose) she will also write the day and time it was discovered. She has locked all additional rooms in the house and even gates outside the house thinking people are coming in and destroying her stuff. She has notes everywhere... She even counts the amount of crackers in a pack and if it is short 1 cracker, she thinks someone did it on purpose to mess with her. Does anyone know what this can be? Is it paranoia? Alhiemzers? I am so conflicted and she needs help but gets mad and says i am out to get her. Please someone help me!

I am a retired pschotherapst and a recovering PTSD surivor. As I experience the aging experience I am also experiencing PTSD issues. I believe the aging process triggers PTSD symptoms . Vulnerbility is the culpret. We are somewhat physically impaired and become more dependent on other to meet our challanges that come with the aging process.
