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!
Hello evceryoneI can not stand that everyday of my life I am paranoid. It is more so about my husband and kids and then of course thinking my friends are really plotting against me. I dont know what to do I hate this feeling and it is like everyday it gets even worse.
Does any body else have their paranoia hit especially at nighttime ? All day i can function normally, but when night comes around i find myself only focusing on my delusions
