11. I'm so so sorry about your friend

This is such a horrible illness. I had a friend long ago who had a breakdown like this. She was convinced she was being spied on through her TV, that there was a conspiracy to kill her, and our (tame, harmless) Wiccan coven was doing human sacrifice. She cut off all contact. Her family did intervene after a suicide attempt and she was hospitalized for a while, but never the same when she came out. She won't talk to anyone from that time in her life.

She had that same certainty, that she knew what was really going on and the rest of us were just sheeple who refused to see the truth.

She was such a kind person, and a very promising artist, and all that just...changed.

I hope your friend gets help and is able to accept it - not a given in places with a less fucked up health care system than ours.
