How to Deal With a Delusional Bipolar?

Question by Hat: How to deal with a delusional bipolar?
My mother is a bipolar and started having delusions that I am hacking into her home network and spying on her, stealing money from her and her family’s bank accounts, tapping into her phones, etc… She seems to have gathered ‘evidence’ for my non-existent criminal activities and she’s 100% convinced that this is happening. Is it possible that this will eventually go away? Every time I counter her ‘evidence’ it seems to do no good. Is there any way to cure delusions?

Answer by McCall Evans
Medications and therapy help tremendously. Perhaps once your mother is no longer in a period of mania you could start family therapy. Mental illness is often a family illness.
