My cousin is currently in an inpatient mental health facility suffering from postpartum psychosis. She has mania, auditory & visual hallucinations, and delusions. She has been in for four days and has not yet been responsive to any medication. We've heard that people typically remember everything once the psychosis ends. We've been asked to point out delusions or tell her when thinks are not real. I've been visiting her often but want to know how to talk to her - Since she's completely disconnected with reality and exhibiting mania, it's hard to get in a word, but I want to interact with her in a way where I'm not having to point out the delusions. For any of those who have experiences Postpartum Psychosis, was there anything that got through to you? Was there anything that comforted you? This has been so surreal.
