So this may be an unusual question for this site, as this is about my mom. Growing up, I have had many psychic experiences, and may post them later, however, this is not about that. I am now grown up and believe in many varied things, though I'm slowly trying to determine whether others are similarly psychic or if they actually do have a condition that needs treatment. It is my tendency to look for an alternate (non-medical) solution. With my mom, I have done this for many years, and she has grown comfortable telling me many thing. She sees auras as well as spirits (which seem to follow her, and growing up I am sure these are real occurrences, due to my own senses). This is not, however, what this post is about.
Recently, it has come to my attention that my mom may actually have some kind of disorder, namely borderline, disassociative, or multiple personality disorder. I think this because sometimes when we are talking, she will say very cutting things, then claim to have no recollection of these exchanges. Or, she will say something so out of context, and she cannot explain what she meant by it when I ask her. She has also told me stories, some she even told me tonight, about years ago when she would have "black-outs" where she is still perfectly functional, once where the last thing she remembered was driving down the highway and recalls "waking up" parked in a junkyard, with a person knocking on her window, and when she rolled it down, he said "Andy" was ready to talk to her. This is obviously not normal, but she sees no problem with it. Getting a direct answer out of her is very hard. She has also recently been undergoing therapy, recovering from anxiety and depression, but she was also traumatized during childhood abuse.
I ask this of you because she doesn't think anything is wrong and since I have shown to agree with her aura-visions and other things, she now thinks I have changed on her and am calling her "broken", and absolutely abhors doctors... But something definitely seems wrong. She doesn't seem to agree. But half the time, she cannot even recollect what she says. So my question to you, whoever cares to answer this for me, please; am I missing something here? Is there a metaphysical answer for this? I don't know what she thinks about all this because she doesn't seem to have put much thought into it. I want to know if maybe she is doing this on purpose? Because even as her daughter, I cannot tell when she is lying or making stuff up for attention, or whether she really needs help. Again, I will be the first to listen to alternate theories, and non-pharmaceutical treatments if so be it. The last thing I wish is to drug my mom up. I just want her unacceptable commentary and memory loss to stop.
So, in recollection, this may not have been the best site to post this on, but in your professional (and even not so professional) opinions, can I safely say that psychic effects are not involved here (at least NOT in this one)? She has no diagnosis but she claims that her body has done things she did not willingly allow, was not conscious of, and has no recollection of. This happened at varying times over the course of her life, and has started happening in regular every day conversation recently. Did I mention she is doing regression therapy? Please help! I just want to know I'm not being a "bad person" for wanting my mom to get proper help. She has also had many seizures and takes medication for it (though she always seems to forget) and yet, she is not classified as epileptic. I think her seizures and these alter personalities she claims have something to do with each other.
