Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi Anonymous,
Welcome to
This is true that people can suffer from this kind of illness. (most likely one is Schizophrenia from description written by u)
They really hear a voices inaudible to others and have suspiciousness.
First important thing to help her is accept that this is kind of psychiatric illness which can be controllable but not curable (occurs due to chemical changes in brain),which requires attention of both doctors and caregivers.
Like Hypertension Diabetes this is also kind of chronic illness which requires prolonged treatment and regular follow up.Usually patient doesn't have insight into illness so they don't feel to take any medicine for same (as they feel its true or voices tell her that by giving medicine u trying to harm her)
There are many options that psychiatrist can help u by means of medicines,injections etc.
So pls take her to psychiatrist as earliest as possible,He will definitely help you to decrease the problem.

Psychiatrist Dr. Sundar Gnanavel's  Response
Thanks for your query. The symptoms you report of i.e hearing voices that do not exist is referred to as hallucinations. This symptom along with suspiciousness point towards a psychotic disorder like paranoid schizophrenia. I would suggest a thorough psychiatric evaluation as soon as possible. Following this, effective anti-psychotic medication are available to tackle the condition. Wish her speedy recovery.

It seems your wife is experiencing auditory hallucination. Auditory Hallucination is a condition where a person hears a voice which is not there. She also seems to be having a delusion (false and firm belief) of black magic. These symptoms suggest a form of psychosis. If this has been a consistent feature over these years, this could be Schizophrenia. However, please do not take this as a diagnosis. She needs to be evaluated by a Psychiatrist for diagnosis and treatment advice.

She may need to take treatment in the form of medicines (anti-psychotic medication, sedatives, etc.) for a long time, as her illness seems to be there since a long time now. Hope this helps. Take care.
