“Pppphhhhttt. They diagnosed me with paranoid schizophrenia with narcissistic delusions of grandeur.”
She continued, “.. but those therapists didn’t know what they were talking about. They are just jealous and scared because I’m psychic and I know what is in their heads.”
That was a few months ago, when I was still trying to be her friend. I don’t hold mental illness against people.
She talked about her relationship with a famous basketball player. She talked about her secret life as the one in charge of security for the U.S. — and “showed” me how she can control what security does with her mind while riots were playing out on the television.
I wasn’t scared away. I was saddened, a little intrigued, and sympathetic. I thought she needed a friend and I could be one.
Then she started targeting me. Disrupting the entire neighborhood. Accusing me of ridiculous things. Making my life very difficult, even though I spend most of it inside my apartment.
I, and other “lucky” neighbors have been targeted by her. She is not on medication, but she IS on alcohol.
This isn’t pretty.
She is now threatening to shoot me with bullets from her mind because she doesn’t need a gun. Well, honestly, by the open post she placed, I’m not sure if she is threatening me, the basketball player, the Tucson Police Department, one of the local news programs, the leasing office…. but according to the time posted, she was standing outside my door yelling and using a high-pitched whistle.
I’m a little frightened, but I’m leery of calling cops to have them “warn” her again and walk away.
She needs medication, but I wish she would just leave right now.
I can’t even tell you how much I wish all of the above was fiction. It’s happening and there is more to that strange story.
Have you ever been targeted by someone with diagnosed paranoid schizophrenia or something similar? How did you handle it? Please feel free to comment!
