    How do you deal with Delusional disorder patient

    I have a kid who has this kind of disorder. She tell lies all the times, and thought that she is telling the truth. We all know she is lying but she denied it. She says something that are not happened at all. This is really worrying me and I am so sad about it. I tell her to see psychiatrist but she just doesnt listen to me. And says i dont trust her.

    How old is she?

    People will lie sometimes because their own lives they find are boring and start living in some fantasy world and its hard to break out of it.
    Lie so much you believe yourself .

    I worked with someone who it seemed like couldn't help but lie constantly, it caused terrible trouble sometimes but, in the end anything that was told to us was basically taken with a pinch of salt.

    Really it's a form of illness. Sad, must be awful to suffer from it. You have my sympathies.

    Is this kid your own kid? If so surely you can get her to see a doctor. Sometimes depending on the age they are purely living in a fantasy world and forming imaginary friends etc. This is quite normal. If its an older kid maybe its not such a disorder as a problem that is causing the lies. Tell us more.

    Find a website with peoples own accounts and how getting help changed things for them then she can read for herself from people with the same perspective.

    Yeah..she believe herself so much. I was going to believe her because of the way she speak. Like so real..She is 18 years old. She always thought that we dont love her, which is quite bad. I bought everything for her, Wii and stuff. But still cant make her happy

    Have you looked her in the eyes and told her that you care

    Can't buy someone.

    If you can't get her to go to GP for a referall than there isn't really anything you can do. Unless she a danger to herself or others then whoever won't do anything.
    Take my partner's brother for example,he's in a pretty bad way but they can't do anything for him as most of time he won't admit to having such problems.He's even been sectioned at times but they can only keep you for so long if your not totally insance. Plus with NHS they want want you on your way soon as possible...
    Personally I reckon he eventually commit suicide one of these days,he's attempted to before so only matter of time till he does and suceeds.

    My 11yr old son has Aspergers' Syndrome and he lies and says he hasn't done stuff - I've seen him do it, so I know its him. It's like his mind closes, he really believes that he hasn't done things - I reckon he'd pass a lie detector test. I've asked his specialist and his inclusion worker and they both say its quite common. Nothing can be done, just have to deal with it.

    Don't really know what to suggest for your daughter - do you spend time with her, not just in the same room but doing something together? Doesn't have to cost anything, you could just sit down and talk/listen to her - just 10 minutes every day and she'll know that you care.;-)

    Maybe you need to think about what loving someone is. Sometimes its not about what you buy for someone (although we all love gifts) but about understanding and taking time to talk. Your post came across as buying something for someone is about love. If she feels unloved then really tell her and most of all show her that you love her. Apparently it costs nothing (the bank account stays the same) and means the world.

    Maybe councelling would work if she feels ready for it, if not its a waste of time. One day she may ask for some but until that day it would probably be all one sided. Maybe there is an outside influence unvolved. There could be lots and i know how frustrating it may seem nothing will actually work until she is ready. Good luck and hope things get better for you all. x
