In Australia, Amy and her sister, Emily, say they’re concerned about their mother, Marie, who is taking extraordinary measures – like sleeping outside in a tent – because she claims that a neighbor is poisoning her and her husband, Gordon, with toxic fumes.

“The situation with my mother is very extreme,” says Emily, claiming that Marie is “extremely paranoid” and has covered her home in security cameras, which she monitors throughout the day.

“It’s absolutely taken over their life,” says Amy.

Marie claims these “attacks” have been going on since 2017 and says she also believes this person is invading her privacy with listening devices. Why do Emily and Amy say they fear their mother is at her breaking point and could “snap” at any time?
