How do you tell someone that they are going crazy?


How exactly do you tell someone that you think that they may be crazy or going crazy?  How do you convince someone who is paranoid delusional that it is all in their heads?  How do you convince the ones you love that they really do need HELP?  And you are not trying to be mean or call them names, but you really think that they need to see a doctor?

This is what i just had to deal with with a close relationship.  He desperately needs help!  I am not a professional and no mental health expert on things outside what i deal with myself.  I have done some armchair research into trying to diagnose strange behaviors of people i live with or know well, but i profess to know very little in regards to mental health and what my doctor or therapist might know.  I do know that i think that this person i was talking about has multiple disorders overlapping which makes it even tougher to try and understand.  One thing i do understand is that this person needs to see a professional.  There is DEFINITELY something wrong.  They need help or i fear they are going to end up dead from either suicide or drug overdose to try and numb the mental discomfort.

It is a lot harder to tell someone they are losing their minds then it seems.  I personally was not successful, but i said it in the most loving way i knew how and i did it from the heart.  It was rejected and made me create an elevated level of anger and distrust towards me.

I let this person go.  It was too unhealthy for the both of us, but mostly me.   I do not want to put myself too close to a person i know that is high risk for early death and an ugly descent on the way down.  It is so sad and heartbreaking to see such a beautiful soul underneath it go to waist because the insanity runs the show.

It deeply saddens me.

About bluepearlgirl's world

Hello. My actual name is Emelie. I am an artist in San Francisco. I started out my early life deep in the Santa Cruz mountains. I left Santa Cruz shortly after graduating High School in 1992 and moved up to the city. I have been in sf ever since and more specifically Bernal Hts. since 2009. I work in a number of mediums usually depending on the space i have to work in. In SF that can vary greatly! I look forward to sharing my thoughts, observations and photos with you all. Hopefully at the very least i will give you a little chuckle once and a while. Thank you for stopping and reading my little blog. I encourage all who stops by to leave comments.
