Does my Mother have schizophrenia?

Hi, I'm wondering if my mothers symptoms sound like schizophrenia?
As a child, she never spoke to me much, never socialised because she always told me everyone is at us and not to trust anyone. As I grew up she told me never have kids because they will be cursed and bad things will happen. Suddenly when I was 15, she told me she needed to tell me something for my own safety. She told me that everyone is at us and our whole family and I had to be careful. From then on, it got worse. We used to have to write down anything we wanted to say to each other because she thought people could hear us. She thought people were doing things as a sign and it meant something. I had to go along with everything she said as she begged me to believe her. She truly believes she's not unwell and never has. Its been years since all that because I told her I don't want it spoken about once I had kids. I still think she is like that but hides it well.

Anyone know what it is?

Thanks

She does sound very paranoid. Does she hear or see things that aren't there?
Hi, thanks for your reply.

She thinks things on the TV are a sign for her. She once told me she felt a knife being pressed up her leg at night. She smells things that are not there. I can't remember if she saw or heard things that was not there. She did once say she felt like pushing people in the road.

Hi Mezzer,

I would advise that tomorrow, which is Monday, you can do either of the following methods; contact your GP, for a referral, thouigh that could take months, at this juncture, so I wouldn't advise you to go that route, or, contact the crisis team, which is attached linked to the community mental health team, and they will be the best departmental team, to point you in the right direction, and assess you, and if necessary directly refer you on internally, to the psychartry team. In fact, the latter might well be the best way forward.

From there, assessments, can be done, allowing for the senario of th present time, and write up a suitable medication, and dosage.


I can understand it, i can sympathise, I have paranoia, myself, not quite of the same themes though.


I wish you the best of help luck, for you and off course your mother.

Do let us know indue course, how you'll manage to get on, in due course, in the near future, all being well.


Welcome aboard, to MHF.

Hi again, Mezzer,

Having just read, the ending of your current reply, I would strongly advise you, to contact the crisis team, tomorrow, and try to get an appointment booked up, they will visit you, your mother, and get a urgent assessment done, as soon as.
