My mom is bipolar and we are struggling. She's had it now for 7 years. My sister died 5 years ago and it put her back 10 years. She is still grieving and believes nobody understands her. She is only 56yrs old, but she is permantly paranoid. She just wants to spend money the whole time, and she is flat broke already. She thinks we are all out to get her. I dont know how to handle her. Can someone please give me advise? Even my kids dont want to go and see their grandmother.
I do not know how to handle her. She thinks I am out to get her - paranoia.... She doesnt understand that I have my own life to live and cant be with her 24hrs a day.
Her psychiatrist says she must leave my stepdad and go on her own. I think he is wrong. My stepdad supports her and has been there for her through everything. But she lies to the doctors. And they all believe her. We have tried to talk to her doctors but according to them, we are wrong and everything she says is right!! How do we solve this?
