Sister has phycosis

    Hi guys,

    Haven't signed in here in a long time.

    So, would anyone have any advice for me ans my family?

    My sister has been hearing things through the wall at first around January. Since then it's developed into the neighbours all looking at her and talking about her, every day my sister my mam and data "stop talking about me" and gets quite angry if you disagree with her. We.sent my mam to sisters for 7 days to see what happens and now I'm the target for her I'm talking about her to the neighbours etc.

    If you ask her for any proof, she won't show it. She said she has videos on her phone buy if she we will delete them.

    She is 33 years old. Possibly taking antipsychotics(she's supposed to be) and has a health nurse coming every few days to the house.

    Things don't seem to be improving even on meds for 6 weeks. Although we're not sure if she's still taking them. What I would like to know is how I should respond when she accuses me of talking to the neighbours?

    Thanks guys

    Keep calling her up on it. Enforce positive actions in her behavior like 'do your own thing and forget what people may or may not think of you'

    What has the public health nurse advised or is there a mental health help you can get advice from. If things aren't improving should she be brought into a hospital.

    Advice would be not to take on board advice from strangers online. This is a matter that clearly requires professional help and you'll only potentially harm matters further by putting ridiculous suggestions here in motion.

    Hi OP sorry but I need to close this as it's a medical issue that will require more professional help. We can only advise you start by talking to the nurse, and wish you the best
