Please help, we are all concerned about her.
She is a 24 year old female who has used “recreational” drugs since her early teens, including marijuana, MDMA, LSD, and etc… She believes that she is clairvoyant, or psychic, but does not follow through with accurate readings. I am unsure if this is a real thing that is going on in her head, or if she is trying to seek attention.
She is extremely spiritual and will read the same spirituality books over and over again and repeat the same phrases over and over again, ‘parroting’ I believe is the term. She is quite obsessed with her newfound religion and though it can be a good thing (she tries to be positive most of the time), it clearly dominates her mind and she cannot hold a conversation without relating it back to herself or her spiritual relationship with the world. She is very adamant about everyone believing in what she does and if you don’t, she will push her beliefs onto you until you give in or it’s time for her to leave.
She is quite narcissistic where every conversation is related back to her in someway, and it can be quite exhausting to spend time with her because everything, even our own personal experiences, are of relation to her and her world. It feels as if she believes that the world revolves around her and we are just the people in it.
She believes that people who have a criticism of others and herself, even if it’s constructive in nature, is a reflection of themselves and refuses to believe that there is anything that she could be doing wrong.
She believes that all men, and some women, look at her as a sexual object and I truly believe that, if this is true, she enjoys the attention immensely. She is continuously posting photos of her cleavage and etc. on facebook.
She has a habit of lying, or exaggerating the truth. She has told me in the past that her family wasn’t affectionate with her and when we confronted a family member about this they seemed surprised that she had felt that way and insisted that she had plenty of attention growing up.
The most concerning thing is that she sees visions, ghosts, orbs, colors, and people that are not there, including Jesus and Mary, and insists that the universe is trying to tell her something. She consistently says that ghosts will inhabit her body to send their loved ones messages and truly believes that she has powers that no one else has.
Finally, it has become known to us that her mother’s mother unfortunately had an intense schizophrenia that kept her in the hospital until her passing.
Please, what are we dealing with here and what can we (her friends and family) do to help her?
