I'm dealing with something I never thought would happen to my older sister . She has been mentally I'll for quite some time which has devistated her and her children that I recenly took custody of. I was wondering if there are any other families dealing with such mental health issue. I have ben trying to convince her to get help but she refuses to believe that she is ill . I have tried abs tried but feel I'm loosing the race against time the longer she goes without treatment the less the chance are for a quicker recovery and being reuited with her kids.

Half the women on here have mental issues. Maybe one of them can help.

My brother is paranoid schizo. I don't know his whole story, and if I ask him he'll lie about it in the most exaggerated fashion he can find. If I ask my parents, they'll not tell the whole story. Sorry, I donno how to help. Good luck.

My sister to it's heart breaking to see them in a delusioal sedated state of mind. I'm so scared my six is going to hurt someone who she believes has been staking her poisioning her stealing her phone money ECt. It sucks that we have to watch it and especially the kids and parents. I hope that your brother gets the help he deserves
