Re: Should I discuss the behaviour
I have a cousin who is schizophrenic and lives in a nursing home. It is difficult with her behavior too and she is on medication. Is your cousin taking her medication and does she have any other place to stay that could help her? You could call social services. I'm not sure how old she is but I know my uncle and aunt are in their 80's and get very stressed about her actions and I started writing to her and she has really started different behaviors and they told me to stop writing to her. Mental illness is so hard to deal with especially a family member or friend. Best wishes. I wouldn't allow her to hit you in any way and that should be a definite boundary.
