Ok, my mom I think (kinda know) suffers from schizophrenia. She hears things that aren't said and sees stuff too. She thinks cops follow her (when they have no reson too) everyones against her, lieing to her, keepin secrets from her, ect, ect.
Now my great grandma had paranoid schizophrenia. Thought people poisoned her food didn't trust anyone, ect, ect.
But my mom knows schizophrenia can be hereditary, she even says that she knows it sounds crazy, but she swears she not.
Now I've done some reading up on this and the symptoms and everything, And it all matchs to hows shes acting.
So what do I do? How do I get her help? O did I mention I'm the only one shes trusts and can talk to? So how do I get her help without hating me or losing trust in me?

I had a hard time with one of my relatives, getting him to the hospital. I went along with some of the (crazy) stuff he said, and then, for some reason, he realized that it sounded crazy, and he kind of snickered and said that it sounded crazy. Because we were with him, he went to the hospital. (The first time he went to the hospital, he went in emergency because of his odd behavior outside--We weren't there to witness that then.)

How are things going?
