Copied from the Diagnosed forum:
My 39 year old sister believes people are following her and watching her. She says they cough of clap their hands to get her attention. She believes there is a grand conspiracy in her city to drive her out of town. She is now at my mother’s house. She doesn’t work and has borrowed money from almost everyone she knows including over 30K from my mother. My problem is that she refuses to get mental help because she says there is nothing wrong with her. What can we do to help her and protect my mother from her manipulations?
