Hey guys, to give you a little background... My mom has been a bit strange her entire life, maybe no more than some other people but my dad always said that something just wasn't quite right and it started after she had her first kid (me). When I was little she'd stop and pickup people on the side of the road because "God told her to" well eventually things went downhill to the point where she thought people, the government and others in this grand conspiracy were spying on her. So she'd tell my dad about this stuff. She felt she could trust my dad and due to my dads back ground as a cop and his frequent visits to DC and the whitehouse she felt he had an inside track and could help protect her. Of course the reality is no one is trying to kill her and no one is stalking her on a federal, state or any governmental level. In August of 2002 my dad started having bad headaches, by the first week of september the tests came back and he had a brain tumor. Phase 4 GlioBlastoma, prognosis 1 yr with treatment 6 months without. My dad has several brain surgeries several short periods of being in coma's and finally on Nov19 2002 he died. The time frame was just over 2 months from diagnosis to death. This of course set my mother off, the "conspiracy leaders" killed him and they were going to get her next. Then a year later, my grandfather died. Again same deal, the hospital, doctors and nurses were paid off by the members of this grand conspiracy to kill him. Well my youngest brother was only 14 when my dad died so needless to say this was very hard on him. This whole time he's been living under her roof, he doesn't want to go live with our other brother or with me because all his friends are by home. I understand that, but this has still had a very adverse affect on him. He's forced to partake in her religious activities on friday nights and all day saturday, now he's 17 almost 18 he's old enough to make his own decisions. My mother's health has continued to deteriorate because she doesn't go see doctors of any kind. She takes all this herbal medicine and thinks that the medical community is just there to somehow kill her. The result? Well she's been having vision problems for about 5 or 6 months now. Slowly its gotten worse. Last month we finally talked her into going to some eye doctors who said it appears to be some form of glaucoma. She said that wasn't true that it wasn't glaucoma that it had something to do with her nerves. She said she's been having trouble sleeping, her feet burn and she's been having other nervous system issues. So I said to her ok go see a nuerologist, dont waste anymore time. Also go see an eye specialist. I talk to a friend of the family thats a doctor and he thinks her nervous system symptoms sound like possibly parkinsons. So I finally get her to go see an eye specialist who diagnoses her with narrow angle glaucoma. She then gets up during the test procedure and walks out because she doesn't like his diagnosis. Since then she's refused to get medical help. Needless to say I got an email this morning from my aunt saying that her and my other brother were going to push for guardianship. So I'm supposed to sign and get notorized the papers and fax and certify mail them. Which I plan on doing. Wondering if anyone has some advice or has been through anything similar and can help give me some guidance.
