Medicinal Phobia , stress, diabetes.
My mom has medicinal phobia since many years, every one ignored it at the beginning but its too much now . she is not ready to visit any Psychiatrist Counselling , she gets angry on me when i say to visit any doctor (she feels i am mad to go to a Psychiatrist) , she is a Diabetes and High Blood Pressure Patient so she has to eat medicines twice a day and she cant eat them alone, she wants some one to be there around her to witness that she is eating medicines and takes half hour to eat 2 small tablets. she is writing the name of medicine/ time at which it has taken / date & day . and i think its not normal she should get cured from this Phobia. she gets too much stressed while eating those medicines. hope you will help me out.

Dear friend, does your mother tell you why she  fears meds? What does she think will happen if she takes the meds alone? If possible, please ask a psychiatrist to undertake a home visit and talk to her. That will probably be the only way to help her at this point.
