my sister was perfectly okay 10 days back..suddenly some of her friends told
her things which were very personal to her and were not supposed to be known to them..these facts came like a shock..she is completely lost and is not talking sense..she believes someday cops might come and take her..she thinks she has put her parents and family in shame..she only talks and thinks negative..i seriously want to know what kind of behaviour from the family might help..please help..

Can the family accompany her to her primary care physician for a referral and diagnosis?

Has the psychiatrist given your sister a diagnosis yet? That's a very useful thing to have.

Your sister my have been experiencing things over 10 days, but was able to maintain a façade, like me. I made all the arrangements for a funeral, greeted guests, gave the eulogy, etc, and then when I was out of everyone's daily lives, I fell apart completely, requiring hospitalization. Medication has helped me.

I have a friend with paranoid delusions about the police being after him (which in reality, they are not). He obsesses about death and dying. He even has "aliens" in his head that tell him when the end of the world is, and he believes it, no matter how wrong the "aliens" are each time. Medication helps him, too, to an extent.

I hope your sister feels better soon.

Before I had a diagnosis, I didn't really know how to proceed.
