Help

I am quite new to the world of mental illness, but learning all the time. I cannot tell you what a shock it was to be thrown into the world of mental illness, it was totally unexpected. So now i find myself trying to support a loved one as she travels through her journey of life with mental health issues for company. She is in denial that there is anything wrong & she will not discuss it at all, so that makes it even harder for me to help her. The worst thing is when she sees or hears things that are not there & she gets so frustrated with me because i can`t see what she sees. I`m not really sure how best to handle these situations since i don`t want to make matters worse. I have never lied to her & so i`m not going to start now, but if anyone has any suggestions how best to react in these situations i would be grateful to hear them.

Don't worry about that, I'm still trying to sort myself so not much use to anyone right now, all I can do is listen for now and not judge.

Hope you find help here, you will definitely find support :hug:
