Ok, my mom I think (kinda know) suffers from schizophrenia. She hears things that aren't said and sees stuff too. She thinks cops follow her (when they have no reson too) everyones against her, lieing to her, keepin secrets from her, ect, ect. Now my great grandma had paranoid schizophrenia. Thought people poisoned her food didn't trust anyone, ect, ect. But my mom knows schizophrenia can be hereditary, she even says that she knows it sounds crazy, but she swears she not. Now I've done some reading up on this and the symptoms and everything, And it all matchs to hows shes acting. So what do I do? How do I get her help? O did I mention I'm the only one shes trusts and can talk to? So how do I get her help without hating me or losing trust in me?View Thread
