I don’t even. 

Please allow my television crushes to demonstrate my reactions as I read this post.

She sounds legitimately mentally ill………delusions about divinity and predicting the future, not knowing boundaries or picking up on social cues about personal space and unwanted physical contact….yup…..I have about 10 people on the pyche unit I work at that are just like that. It sounds like the boyfriend needs to take her in for an evaluation and treatment.

I am always in favor of the direct approach in these circumstances. This person is important to your friend, and he has to have noticed that something isn’t quite “right” with his gf. Maybe she was on meds before and stopped taking them? He may know about her mental illness, or this may be a new onset. It is a touchy situation. She will only get sicker if he doesn’t get her help though. Either way, I can’t really blame you for not wanting her in your home. It sounds like she could be really unpredictable. If this is mental illness though, the right meds could help her recover. It is AMAZING what I see happen on the pysche unit I work on. People will come in really psychotic, and its like they are a different person when they leave.

Yeah, I agree with PP. She doesn’t sound right at all. She would benefit from an assessment…

@lalalyanne:  I think that is probably a good idea. I’m not a doctor(but I play one on WB,LOL) but it really sounds like she has a psychotic disorder. Often times, paranoia comes with psychosis, and paranoid people can be dangerous, because they believe that someone/thing “out to get them”. ((((hugs))))) It takes a strong person to confront this kind of thing head on.
