@Ferris Thank you VERY much! I will have her start doing that. I don't know which is worse, the hallucinations or the side effects from meds. ):

@Daisy15 you're welcome! During my diagnosis i stayed at the mental health ward for 30 days and they put me on so many meds i was like a zombie and felt nothing. This can happen when your over medicated. Luckily my mom was visiting and she noticed it and told the doctors, A common problem with medication when the someone has been on the medication for a long period they start to get a sense of false hope. By that i mean the medication has put them on an even level and the believe they don't need medication. I have been through that a few times and occasionally to this day i have thoughts that i don't need meds. So just something to watch out for. Peace be with you and your family!

@Ferris I appreciate the advice. We don't have any support groups where we live, and this whole situation is really hurting my heart watching her go through this. She told me today that the risperdone isn't working, so we haven't gotten rid of the hallucinations yet.
