Readers will probably be aware of my dad's long standing paranoid obsession and delusions with our neighbours. He has now decided that "someone" (guess who) has "had a go" at our front path "so that the water all comes into us to flood us". I have just had to listen to him ranting and raving and shouting at poor mum who is in the firing line. I just don't think I can stand this any more. For nearly TWO YEARS we have had to endure the constant complaints and accusations and loony stories about this. He is already on quite a high dose of Quitiapine which seemed to help for a while. Now he's started with the obsession again. For two years we've had people "damaging paintwork", "damaging our wall", "pushing the guttering along", "drilling holes to steal our heat", "pointing pipes to make our bathroom damp", "putting stuff on their lawn to poison the cat" and now we've got this as well. The stories are so absurd that you would laugh but only if you didn't have to live with it. He is going to drive either me or mum or both into a breakdown. I have depression and IBS through this, mum has Parkinsons which is made worse. Frankly at the moment I would not care if he was sectioned into a home, I would just feel relieved that we would not have to listen to it any more. He is relentless and goes on and on and on and on about it and it just grows and grows like some poisonous growth. I feel that I don't have a dad I can love any more, just this paranoid, agressive lunatic who has come in his place. I find myself trying to avoid him even though I live in the same house but feel guilty that it all falls on poor mums shoulders. He is turning both our lives into a living hell. I do not know what to do or where to turn..... Can someone please help me as I dont know what to do Previously nurses have just said "he will forget it" but he does not.
