I need the solution, not a choice of different names to the problem. sorry if I'm being a bit not so polite here, but that's what I think when I read different threads here. A psychiatrist can help if he knows what the problem is called, that's right, but the underlying problem is, she won't go to one, would think of me as an enemy if I forced her, and I can't force her in any way possible. I can't fool her, she's too smart.

Her presence of mind makes me think it's the loneliness that's causing the trouble.

I am feeling so bad. We live in an apartment, and there are all sorts of noises coming from all directions in the building day in and day out. She is not able to stand the noises. I feel so bad, so wretched, when the noises disturb her. I even think some people have started making fun of her. Because they just like being better than her. People are cruel. Some people have started making even more unnecessary noises after realising that it disturbs her, just for the sake of doing that.

I have no power over the people. They do what they want. I only am able to keep myself as calm as possible, so as to avoid any fights between me and my mum. There is no hope of complaining to the police. I tried that multiple times with no result. I just need my mom to get so strong that we can live through this and then go away one day.
Well, yes, I am not a professional, but I feel psychiatrists have decent amount of information to make a good diagnosis. After all, it's been ages since research on psychotropic drugs and mental illness is being carried out by countries like the US.



Also, a psychiatrist does not need to know what the problem is called, just like any other medical doctor, he or she can take the best decision. Mental illness don't have known causes but it's generally accepted they are biological diseases.
