It was one of those days when my mother was in the worst of her moods accusing me...inspite of it I still love her and want to help her..browsing through the internet, I came across posts from children who had parents with the same disorder and the symptoms are exactly what my mother is going through..suspicion, jealousy, insecurity, blaming me as if I would steal her things, accuses me of being lesbian if I spend time with girlfriends, says am sleeping with my brother coz am close to him..we grew up without a father..he is my only sibling..she feels we are alienating her when she doesnt realize she is alienating herself from us with all these stories...she refuses to see a doctor..she accuses her brothers and sisters..no one speaks to her or dares come near her..she spreads stories amongst family and friends and about her own children..it breaks my heart..I cry myself to sleep...am 41 yrs old and live with her and see her going through this everyday..I cant even get married for fear of subjecting someone else to this torture..my sister in law has faced this menace from the day she married my brother...they live separately but phone calls and messages from my mother ruins their happiness..I feel bad for them but they are coping..am in the line of fire and I dont know what to do..I feel like a prisoner in my own home...the stories are just so imaginative, and crazy...I have no one to talk to coz I feel people only make fun of the situation and love gossip and love it when you are in trouble..am an independent, hard working person with high levels of integrity..so when they see me weak with a problem with my mother, I get no help and only get asked questions so that they can listen to the horror stories without bothering to help...I do go out as a relief and tell no one about my problems at home with my mother...I am scared to bring my friends home lest they get accused...it has happened before....she has isolated any kind of family gathering or get together...I do  not see my cousins or aunts or uncles...they do not speak to my mother..but speak to me on and off but do nothing to help....its sad..but dont know what to do...voicing this out in this forum is some kind of relief for me....only someone else with this problem of paranoid parents would understand..the things my mother says is so hurtful..but in my mind I pray..and hope it would go away..I do not retaliate or try to pacify her or say anything..I just stay quiet till it passes....everyday I get accused...everyday I hear stories about how everyone else is stealing from her....I used to get angry earlier or try to explain that no one is trying to do anything..but she does not listen...now recently have been turned into the accomplice who helps the thieves in this case the thief is my cousin who comes to steal and I give him the house keys and let him in....bizzare!!! Not sure what type of cure there is for this..but if there is anything, please let me know...staying with her everyday saps my energyy, my happiness...I cant focus at work or let my mind and brains be free to perform my job at full potential coz throughout the day I get calls and nasty messages from her...I answer the phone only to check if she is ok and hang up as quickly as I can...if there is any suggestion on how to deal with this....or any cure or medication, please let me know..from what I read, does not seem to be anything but just patience and tolerance....
