I need help! My husband died 4 months ago and he and I were responsible for our daughter who has schizophrenia and uses the drug, DXM, found in cough medicine pills. These are found cheaply in Dollar General, Family Dollar, Walmart. They increase schizophrenia type delusions, paranoia, and more.
She is 28 and has increased her usage tremendously. So much so that she sees threats every where. She is extremely angry with me and her relatives next door. She makes threats about pulling her aunt’s hair out and wanting me to be burned. She talks in strange voices. She reared back with a can as if she would hit me at close range. I ducked and she laughed.
She goes into a rage whenever she thinks someone is being critical of her. Much of this is imagined because she hears messages from the TV and radio and computer. She has tarot cards which gives her messages. She loves the devil and reads the Satanic Bible. A few days ago she said she didn’t want to live with me anymore because I lie and have always been a bad mother. (She has always said I was the best mother in the world)
Living with her is a minute by minute roller coaster. She screams obscenities when I try to talk to her and tells me to shut up. The list goes on and on. Two days ago she went into detox and her ACT team counselor said he would talk to her about finding somewhere else to live when she got out. I talked to her on the phone today and she is no longer going to a 28 day facility and says she wants to live with me. Afterwards my anxiety shot up again. I can’t live like this anymore. Am I wrong to want her to live somewhere else. What else is there for her?
Does anyone have any suggestions for me?
