I’m starting to think my mom has paranoid schizophrenia.

So my mother seems to like having long ass conversations to me about people following her.In addition she mentions how a certain bird outside that makes noise is a camera or her phone being tapped. I think that she is driving herself crazy and I’m not entertaining this stupidity one bit. I’ve already told her to change her phone (even though the tapped comment is bullshit) which she still refuse to. I tried telling her if people were following her/us wouldn’t they have done something by now.The part with the bird being a camera is just silly.I can’t listen to this crap no more.She is seeing someone for counseling but I don’t know what she is saying.I may need to just take what my mother says as a joke because she living her life as if she’s in a damn spy movie.

Paranoid schizophrenia is not an effort to annoy and frustrate you (although it certainly can), and it becomes more confusing because the levels of paranoia are not constant...seemingly stable one day, mad as a hatter the next. If your mother is not getting help, she needs it, desperately, and so do you need for her to have it. If she will not agree to seek help, YOU go see a doctor and get advice about your options. And it's never a bad idea for family members to accept some ongoing counseling themselves, because loving a paranoid schizophrenic can take a heavy toll. Good luck, honey.
