Hi, as I understand it your mother is having hallucinations. She may be hearing someone speak bad things even when no one is around and you may find her talking to herself as she believes that the other person is talking to her.
How long is this going on? Any associated fever?
If no fever or other illness, it is likely to be a Psychiatric condition called Psychosis. Please take her to a Psychiatrist .  This may be Schizophrenia. It is a treatable condition and she will become much better with medication.
Hope this helps ,All the best!

May be there is less compatability between your parents. Also may be you romantic never had her opinion to talk about. She has found a way to tell all her feelings about your dad through this tool. Do take her to a psychologist and get her treated.

Hello It would be advisable that you take your mother to see a mental health professional, who would be able to talk to you all and then give you a line of treatment, if necessary. Goodluck
