I know everything says don't tell them what they see isn't there, but I did. Every day has been a constant litany about the "people" living in the gazebo, trees, and pontoon, when no one is there. She has taken to wandering out in the cold to yell and cuss at people who aren't there. We are in Michigan where there is a foot of snow and 2 degree weather. I came home to hear how she had been out at sunrise yelling, and then she turned on me. I got upset and told her there were no people, which ended up with my mother calling me such foul names, saying she hated me, and telling me to leave. She hasn't been diagnosed, and I don't know what to do. She will not go to a dr , so we will have to make her go. She use to work at a mental hospital and doesn't look at this as an illness, but as a mental illness. I am lost , afraid and in need of help!
