Hi, Looking for some advice please. Dad is 70, intelligent, lives alone (has done for 20 years). For 15 years he has been telling everyone that he is going overseas to work for a friend running his hotel in Switzerland. He keeps telling people when they speak to him that he's going away next week, always next week...... Everyone feels like he is insulting their intelligence with the lying, and therefore try to avoid him. 2 days ago dad rang me for my birthday, wished my a happy birthday, asked me how I was feeling after a recent operation I had had... you know - normal questions a parent would ask, then says "now, I have to catch up with you and go thru things because looks like I'm going overseas on Monday or Tuesday" I told him I couldn't "do this" anymore and hung up. Perhaps he is suffering from a mental health problem? Apart from the going overseas issue he is completely normal. If it is possibly a mental health issue I would want to email him some evidence of it and say that I would be more than happy to go to the doctor with him to confirm or rule out, but if he isn't willing then I am "done". I love my dad, help!!?
