Hi. I've never heard of confabulation as a Dx, but it is tragic. It reminds me of a former friend who was Dx'd with "paraphrenia" (along with bipolar II). I understand the paraphrenia to be one who has the delusions of schizophrenic level, without the other symptoms of schizophrenia. He tells bizarre tales endlessly. They aren't all real delusions, some of it is honestly just chronic lying in a pathetic attempt to get more attention and make himself sound important. For this reason, he has no friends and I found it too painful to be his friend. Are confabulation and paraphrenia kind of the same thing? Atypical anti-psychotics were prescribed in the case I mention, but he refused to take them. I wonder if AAPS could help your sister-in-law...Honestly, I don't know, but I hope she is under a doctor's care. Good luck!
