"Thought insertion" is a criteria for an aspect of psychosis from schizophrenia. Bpd often creates manipulative behavior. As what psychiatric disability she has exactly she'd have to see a psychiatrist for that as only they can provide a diagnosis but it would be worth having her see one. As a person who has made a full recovery from schizoaffective disorder with an experimental in Phase II FDA study I'd say recovery is possible and everything you described is treatable but bpd requires talk therapy (generally reccomnded for everything) and cognitive behavioral therapy as well.
Thanks hun. Biggest problem is she doesn't believe she has a problem ... everyone else does.
She won't go to see any form of doctor who has to do with mental illness however she will go see many other doctors for her imaginary illnesses. This has begun to backfire on her lately as a few of them have put her in the hospital for psychiatric evaluation but her loser husband keeps helping her get right back out by saying she is perfectly ok. I think they should lock him up at the same time so he cannot 'rescue' her yet again. Speaking of rescuing ... she has placed herself in all three postions of the victim triangle as well ... she is victim, rescuer and abuser herself.
She has been in Homewood where I got her put the last time and has a diagnosis but due to all the privacy laws even her husband and children do not know what is wrong with her and all of us are getting worn out from dealing with it.
I am getting irritable over this myself because it is non stop and I have enough other things on my plate without having to worry about two mentally ill sisters. My bpd sister is living on the streets of Toronto since last September and has been in and out of jail since for her behaviour. One of the many problems is I am the oldest child and they both come running to me or call me when they have any problems.
I do know both my sisters (and myself) all have PTSD ... my bpd sister and I have both been in severe abuse situations and I have moved out of them so that I am no longer at risk however my anxiety level goes up when having to deal with all this ****. Betty just got PTSD recently due to watching a relative get run over by a car ... she has led a very sheltered life up until now.
I don't know where you live, but look into the Mental Health Act in your country. I am a Registered Psychiatric Nurse, and if you were in Canada, you could take your concerns for your sister to her family doctor and he/she and a psychiatrist could commit her under the Mental Health Act for assessment. It sounds to me like Schizophrenia, likely Axis II with underlying personality disorders.
Connect with your local Mental Health team... they would be best to direct you.
Good luck :)
She is a very unstable person. Shes definitely a paranoid schizophrenic. If she wont go see a doctor, you can have picked up by the proper medical team. They will send medics/authorities to pick her up and bring her to a facility where she will be monitored and tested for her mental state of mind. Once properly diagnosed, she will be medically treated as necessary. By you not doing so is putting the public at risk as well as your mother, family and herself. She is in a dangerous state of mind. Arson, knives, delusions, etc.. is all a cry for help. Keep us posted please
