My mom is the most psychotic, by far, than she's ever been, and it's making my own mental health go down the drain

My mom sent me this text last night, after I was already asleep. And she tried to call me at 10:45 PM, but I have Do-Not-Disturb on for most of the night, every night. Meaning my phone didn’t ring.


She’s been severely mentally ill for decades, yet has NEVER been to a psych hospital. Because she thinks she is fine.

Everything she said in this text is 100% fabricated. The voice in her head, “God”, tells her a whole bunch of bull****. And she always believes it, completely.

My dad is a very kind and loving guy. He has never shown ANY kind of violence. What’s ironic is that my MOM has been violent several times! Last year, she smacked my dad in the face WITH HER CELL PHONE. Like… what the f***.

I can’t handle this. She needs to be in a psych hospital And she’s stressing me out, to the point that I may need to go to the hospital.

My parents got divorced like 4 years ago BECAUSE my mom thought my dad was evil. She still thinks he’s evil, but it’s getting so much worse!!

I didn’t respond to the text.

I had to take a Clonazepam to calm down.

IDK if I’m looking for advice or not. I just needed to get this off my chest


Damnn that must be difficult to deal with @Blossom

I’m really glad your in good enough health to realize your mom is hallucinating and or having delusions.

Please keep in good health! Maybe it’s best to temporarily block her number and let your family know you mom is ill.


If shes delusional then she needs to see a doctor end of

Can you guys get her forcibly hospitalised?


She’s been delusional and hallucinating for the last 20 years. She is seeing a private psychiatrist. But that psychiatrist is a total quack. The psychiatrist was literally kicked out of one of the biggest health centers (many buildings spread around the area) because she’s a wacko.

And, of course, that is who my goes to. This psychiatrist says my mom just has depression and completely ignores the psychosis.

My mom was diagnosed multiple times with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder (by previous psychiatrists), and that’s why my mom stopped seeing those psychiatrists. Because my mom disagrees, to say the least, that she has schizoaffective or schizophrenia.

She talks to “God” all day and all night, in her head. But she believes it’s 100% real.

I feel hopeless. How can I help someone who doesn’t think anything is wrong with themselves? For the last 10 years or so of my parents’ marriage, my dad was desperately trying to help her. But the more he tried to say the voices in her head aren’t real, well… That just made “God” say that my dad is evil. And that’s only getting worse. My mom thinks she has a gift. A special power to communicate with “God”.

Sorry for the long response. It’s OK if you can’t read all of it. I am kinda rambling.

We’ve (meaning my whole family, minus my mom) have been talking about that for the last 8 years or so.

If we did get her forcibly admitted, she would hate all of us. And I’m pretty sure she’d immediately stop any meds they put her on, once she gets out.

How does court ordered treatment work? Like, basically forcing her to stay med compliant. Do you know? I don’t know how it works or how to see if she qualifies for that.

Injections basically.


It seems like you and your family are running out of options and you are probably gonna have to get her treatment whether she agrees or not, the only thing left to try


I’m sorry @Blossom
