My 72 year old Aunt thinks very highly of herself and the life she thinks she has lead. She tells very strange stories and they are starting to worry me. I was recently told, by her, that she was abducted by aliens and has alien DNA. She also says these aliens live in her lake. Previous to this story was the story about the gnome with the red hat that came to life at night, caused all sorts of problems, and even gave her dog cancer. She told me she buried it upside down on the island and covered it with salt.
These stories are getting worse. She lives alone and says she is depressed. One minute no one talks with her EVER and the next a handsome police officer visits her every night.
She also does things that can get her hurt very badly because she says no one will help her with the "man work". She smashed her hand this summer and is now convinced she has a disease that only the Germans in her family has.
I am concerned for her but she is a stubborn lady and wont listen to anything unless she agrees to it. Why would she be telling such crazy stories and what should I do about it?
