what mental disease does my mom have... seriously, please answer! read below

my mom laughs hysterically at literally everything. we barely ever see her because she locks herself in her room all day and when she comes out she looks like shes been crying. she takes way to many medications and not once in my life have i ever seen her in perfect health(im dead serious) many others and i think she fakes many of her illness's. also she is obsessed with jesus, OVERLY OBSESSED. a long time ago when my parents were divorced she made us wear the armor of god and pretended she was satan and told us to fight her. she would smash our things, cut them with knives, burn them and pray a ritual over them to "cast the demons out" please tell me what is wrong with her!

You need to call Child Protection Services!
1) They'll get you to a place of safety, they'll let you stay with family if possible!
2) They'll get her help
3) You'll get to go back home as soon as she's well!
This is a matter of safety! Act fast!
Where's your Dad?
Can he take you?
I'm worried about you, please consider what I've said! You can call 911 or CPS at tel:1-888-767-2445, leave off the 1 if using a cell phone!
Good luck, sweetie!

No one on here can tell you what to do. Its your mom that needs to see a psycologist. There's a bunch of red flags,see what she's willing to do.

we tried bringing her to the hospital several times(usually she seems to love to go there) but when we bring her there she refuses to go
Report as
She needs to make that decision on her own. What meds is she taking?

Tell your grandparents or your dad. She sounds bipolar with psychotic episodes. You are not going to be able to help her by yourself. Are you afraid she will hurt you?

She sounds as though she is very sick and needs some time in a controlled setting with professionals to assess her condition. I can't guess how she was left in charge of taking care of children. Who cares for her? She needs a chance to get well and you need a chance to be a kid. Ask for help from family, counselors, the church, even Social Services if no family member will help. Your mom deserves help and so do you.

This is an emergency. The next time she wants you to fight her, she might believe that YOU are satan and she might try to hurt you. You must make immediate plans to get yourself and any siblings to a safe place. Call your grandparents on both sides. Call your dad. Ask them to come and get you. Be packed and ready. Don't tell your mom. Leave her a note about how much you love her and that you will phone her every day. If you can; call her doctor and let him/her know how bad this is. You must do this today. I believe you are not safe because your mom is really sick and she thinks satan is in the house. Please write back and let us know you have done this. You can do this in the comments.

well that was when i was younger and she did that because shes obsessed with god and the thing is now she doesnt speak to me at all and when she does its about her being in pain

This is terrible. I'm so sorry you are going through this. How old are you? Is there anybody else you can live with? What about your father? He should be getting you out of there. You need to make a good life apart from your mom. If she refuses help, she won't get better and nobody can make her agree to help.
Report as
well my dad could if they went to court again but everytime they go to court they thinks she is fine and she will still have custody of us :( and im 14 my brother is 12
Report as
Your mom is not well enough to plan a court action. You don't need that anyway. Just live with your dad. Don't take any pills she gives you. Because she is mentally I'll, she should not be directing your life. It is sensible and logical that you live with your dad. This will be good for you and your brother.
Report as
she went to the court before though...
Report as
You are old enough now to present your history with her and to ask for a choice because your mom is mentally I'll and refusing to accept help.

I've seen something similar... But it was a long... Long time ago. You're going to need get the authorities involved. I have a feeling your mom won't talk to a psychiatrist or therapist willingly. If she's on medications, then the doctor should know if she's out of control, if he/she doesn't, she needs a new doctor or therapist. mainly, get help

she used to go to a therapist but she stopped and she probably lied to them
Report as
I thought that might possibly be the case. If it's not possible to help her, you may have to resort to helping yourself by getting out of the situation. Even if it's not an immediate danger, it doesn't mean it's not taking a toll on your mind and body

Call child welfare no one has to know you did it or you can have your school counselor call for you they can give your dad custody and get your mom the professional help she needs. You are not safe in that house hold I know that you are in a scary and rough spot but it won't get better if you don't get help. Also depending in what state you live in you may be old enough to decide what parent you want to live with and also it sounds like she has schizophrenia and if that's the case in some states it's illegal to have minor children in the same home under the direct care of the person with the illness for the child's own safety

what is schizophrenia exactly?

It is a mental illness that effects the brains way of working. A person may see things that are not there, hear voices, plus have drastic mood changes or behaviors. They can pass as 'normal' one minute yet be completely unstable the next they often say or do things that don't make any sense to any one except themselves. You can get much more detailed and accurate information on webmd.com. I only know a little about it but know it can only be treated by trained specialist

ok i will look it up thanks

My sister went through the same EXACT thing crying laughing locking herself in the room saying she married Jesus then killed him, crazy stuff (I'm extremely serious) she then started to act like she was convulsing we took her to the hospital and they drug tested her she had all kinds of legal n illegal drugs in her. After she got completely clean we took her to a psychologist center saw like 8 different dr.s n the final diagnosis was bipolar disorder type 2 with mild schizophrenia it was scary and there isn't too much to do because it's a chemical imbalance in the brain with not too much research done all u can do is hope a dr prescribes the right thing n that they stay medicated willfully I'm no dr but all this I know because I used to be close to her n took her to all her appointments she didn't stay medicated n went AWOL she is now serving a two year sentence @ a prison for attacking her grandpa... Act before it's too late for u n your family hope everything works out
