Maybe bipolar one dillusional or borderline personality with the bp1.
BUT, you and brother need to get her to a psychiatrist. In most states if you have a pdoc and a family member you can get the person into a psych unit for
"monitoring". Check it out, it sounds as if she is a harm to herself, that alone can get a well check from the police.
You need professional intervention.
she needs psychiatric intervention really bad! she needs to be in a hospital. i'm bipolar and don't do those things and when i have delusions i recognize that they aren't real but she need help now.
I would love to get her back into a psychiatric hospital ... unfortunately so far we have been unable to do so ... Canadian laws could put her in but we need to catch her in the act of doing something wrong in order for them to intervene (stupid rules) ... we are expecting a blow up very shortly from her when she finds out she no longer has any control over mom ... and mom admitted today that she is afraid of her and what she will do ... up until now she has kept silent about her own fears ... mom is at her mercy and I do believe Betty would harm her as does my brother. Unfortunately fearing something from someone is not grounds to get her help unless she is immediately threatening someone else. We have a couple plans of action lined up and are preparing to get her put into the hospital when she blows. It won't be pretty ... it never is ... but at least she will get the help she needs. Thanks
Our other problem is she no longer has a doctor of her own and refuses pshychiatric help as she says she doesn't have a problem ... everyone else does.
I don't know what is wrong with your sis other than she is definitely over the edge. For heaven's sake keep her away from your Mom. You may be able to go to a lawyer and get legal guardianship over her on the grounds she is mentally incompetent. Any reports of the axe, knives and etc from the authorities would help. Even her showing up in court with knives would do the trick. Talk to her dr and tell them what is going on, Good luck
Ohhhh no worries there ... there isn't a chance for her to get close to Mom ... We have thought of getting legal guardianship and we have taken pictures of all the knives, etc. as has the insurance company. If she trespasses onto my brother's property he is fully prepared to call the police and tell them about the knives in her purse, etc.
She doesn't have a doctor of her own any more ... any doctor she has seen in the past year has tried to help her by signing her into the hospital with a form one however her fool of a husband keeps helping her get back out. We don't know how he does it but he does ... no worries ... the next time we call the police we intend to tell them that he is enablling her and is as much of a problem as she is. It may not be fair to him but at least this way both of them will get put into the hospital for assessment and cannot get each other out. Hopefully this will get her the help that she needs. I don't expect her to bounce back too quickly as she has been this way for quite some time now.
