My mother has a myriad of ailments, one of which is fibromyalgia. When her doctor refers her to a psychiatrist, she decides the doctor doesn't understand what she needs and refuses to continue treatment. All she wants is a prescription of xanax. She has now seen 2 doctors who have concluded she needs to see a psychiatrist and both doctors refused to refill the xanax, at which time my mother quit seeing the doctors. The information my mother tells me is filled with half-truths, making it appear the doctors are incompetent and/or unwilling to treat her properly. In the meantime, she has lost a significant amount of weight because she is either in too much pain to make a meal, or too weak. I have called private services to help her with meal preparation, but she has found reasons to not use them. In fact, every possible plan I have come up with she has found reasons each will not work. I am at my wits end. She needs help, but refuses to take it. She needs medical care, but refuses treatment plans. I feel like she is intentionally avoiding getting the help and care that she needs. She will literally say in one breath that she needs help, then turn around and say she doesn't. Does anyone have suggestions as to what I can do to remedy this situation?
