I received this by email the other day - perhaps people can provide some suggestions for this sibling of a person with schizophrenia:
My younger sister lives in California (Irvine ).
From childhood she was involved with various types of mental issues such as ADHD ADD and other unknown mental illnesses that grows with her at every stage of her life , she is 23 and she doesn’t believe that she is ill , its been 5 years she has been stock to the specific mentall problem that she feels being sexualy abused and attacedk by specific people she know but she doesn’t see or hear any thing she could feel.
And she suffer alot from pain . She gaind huge amount of weight in short time she feels she is under control of some metaphysical things .
Because she is an adult nobody can force her or take her or ask for help as we experienced. So what we have to do?
She is getting worse and we called police 2 times the doctors checked her and they released her .
She is still so smart and easily play roles to resist against her real emotions to pretend that she is alright.
They gave her medicine but she doesn’t use . Or if she does its not properly. She says they makes her like a dead person so those who attack her more easier can do their job.
Please give me advice in this matter before its getting too late how we can help her?
