    Mate's tearfully pleading with me that she desperately needs me to "just believe her"...that our house is bugged, internet hacked, and phones tapped. All of our neighbors are evil, conspiring against us, beaming strange lights and ultrasonic waves at us; they coordinate their efforts by secretly communicating via the street lights. Evil people are creeping around our house at night, silently moving the trees and phone poles.
    You know who REALLY desperately needs to be believed?
    THE ONE WHOSE REALITY TESTING IS INTACT!
    I've been bombarded by her psychosis non-stop for days now; she was up in the night, came to bed early dark thirty, blithering her psychotic nonsense; just how I like to start my day.
    I realize that she's frightened and suffering greatly, but I'm really down to my wit's end, and verging upon being really rude and saying hurtful things I'll surely regret later.

    Mental health is a challenging task.
    Bi-polar?
    You need some professional support.
    Keeping you both in my prayers.

    Delusional Disorder, Persecutory Type.
    A head injury in a car wreck made everything 100's of times worse. Neurologist just referred her to a psychiatrist; the third psychiatric referral we've had; hopefully this one won't go into the black hole.

    I am so sorry darling. I had a brother-in-law with similar. I used to play along, better than arguing. xxxx
