Hey, Your mother needs help. Please consult a psychiatrist or psychologist for a thorough evaluation to diagnose her exact condition. It is necessary to gauge her situation as well as her motivation level to decide on just medication, medication and psychotherapy or psychotherapy alone. I wouldn't prefer to label one or two disorders here based on few symptoms before getting the exact picture. However professional help would certainly improve her health as well as environment at your home.
