I'm new to this website and this is my first post.
I am worried for my parents. My Mum has P.D. and is convinced that Dad (her carer) is having an affair. She thinks that a woman (who is a real person) is following them, hiding in cupboards, staying in the house at night. Mum is quite scared at home sometimes
My Dad has spent many years looking after her (she suffered from depression/bipolar for years). He is now really struggling. Mum is obsessed with this woman and rarely thinks about anything else.
I worry for them now as my Dad is very stressed and doesn't know how to handle this.
Mum is on sinemet. She is also on epilim and various other things that I can find out if needs be. She was on Closapine in an attempt to sort this problem out, it didn't work so she is off it now.
Does anyone have experience of this?
Is this normal P.D. behaviour?
What options does dad have?
Thanks for taking time to read this.
