Meth Psychosis HELP???

jrsketchers

SWIM’s mother is deeply induced into meth psychosis, claiming that her ex husband is following her on fox news, making no sense about what she is talking about, posting random pictures on Facebook from her iPhone- all normal things on the phone that she thinks someone is out to get her, outbursts when nobody believes her, even taping her windows and outlets and taking out her smoke alarm thinking it was a camera. SWIM is in rehab for xanax abuse and understands a lot about addiction but cannot fathom why this woman won’t fxxking understand what meth is doing to her. Won’t go to rehab, and is on the verge of death. Cannot even talk to her anymore because she is so consumed in her own delusion and spends all of her day on her phone. She is 54 and SWIM is wondering if this psychosis will ever go away. It has been going on for about 9 months and overtime she’s spun it gets so much even threatened to put her daughter into jail for pictures on her phone because she thought the authorities were after her. Very confused on what to do, wondering if i will ever talk mother again.

SWIM isn’t allowed here.

As for your mom, do you have a local mental health clinic or facility she can be admitted into? When she’s a threat to herself and others you have to take action. Sorry. Meth is one helluva drug.

I’m not a MOD, but I’m sure one can explain, it’s in the forum rules….no swimming.

I’m so sorry that meth is causing psychosis issues in your family. I’ve never desired to try meth, nor will I ever.

Yeah, the site rules, read them.. you cant use swim to cover talking about yourself on here.. it is pretty much useless anyways, its not like they don’t know who SWIM is, LEOs, DEA, FBI… besides, I highly doubt they are concerned about someone whos mother has a drug problem.. they have bigger things to worry about. NOW, I myself, went through a very similar deal with that flakka shit.. other wise known as a-pvp, a stimulant research chemical, that was flooding the streets where I live about 2-3 years ago.. Being the stimulant lover I am, I went ahead and tried it, and whoa! that shit scared the hell outta me, I was totally going psychotic from doing it so much, because it was very VERY cheap, sometimes free, and so easy to get.. I got addicted to it very fast, and it supposedly shares a lot of the same characteristics as crystal meth.. even looks just like it.. but anyways, there were several times, I went absolutely crazy from staying up for days on end smoking that shit, and I was truly thinking there was someone inside my walls, in the apartment I live in.. in my ceiling, with tiny cameras and microphones, recording me, and breaking in through my front door… it got so bad, one night, I though there was some kind of person trying to get me like cops or someone, in my room, watching me, hiding under my bed, in my closet, and all over my house behind/under things.. I barricaded myself in my bathroom, flushed all my flakka down the toilet, then came out, freaked out, yelling at no one in reality truly believing there was like a squad of police in my house! Scariest shit of my life, and there were tons more times like that I had… I was very close to being put in a psych ward by my parents.. but they held off. and soon after the last psychotic episode I had, I just couldn’t find that shit anymore, it disappeared where I live all of a sudden! and what a blessing in disguise that was! I am so happy, not doing that stupid shit anymore, my life atm is soooo much better, and feel so much better! Tell your mom, to get off that shit! if she doesn’t, pull an intervention on her, and make her! get your family or loved ones together and tell her she needs help! or I don’t know, she will probably just continue to get worse… I am sorry you have to go through that, that sucks! I really hope things get better for both you and your mom!

5150 your Mother. Not sure what the process is but start documenting her insanity.

Only thing that’s going to bring her out of this insanity is extended sobriety, and she doesn’t sound like she’s going to pursue that voluntarily.
