my mother was diagnosed w/ a bipoloar/schizophrenic disorder for 23 years, i am the only sibling willing to help her, shes been in and out of the mental hospital for not taking her meds, now she wont shower, throws her things away, yells and curses about me and Jesus when no one is around all night, but during the day when she is around people she is fine. she gets defensive and says she doesnt say these things. she is only 52 and sometimes i feel alone, i pray for her everyday as i dont know how else to help her, i cant get inside her head. so i just help her with material things. but its not enough. any advise? please get back to me.

A wise and kind women's Bible study teacher, Beth Moore, briefly referenced a (Christian-based) website in a blogpost from early last month as a possible source of online support for families who have a child or other loved one with a "hidden disability": chosenfamilies.org

I am the mom of a child with a "hidden disability" (also called: biological brain disorders per NAMI).  We are part of a wonderful, loving, and supportive church and I am grateful for them and also for the chosenfamilies.org website too.  I recommend it highly!
