Anybody may accuse or falsely accuse another person of something they did not do and believe it.  The acusation does not have to be compounded by the diagnosis of a mental illness and or use of illicit drugs or alcohol, though any one of these may contribute to delusions, which may account for the accusers belief in the event.

 

I cannot say the event happened or not.  One must consider all the evidence and mitigating factors without predjudice.  This is why there are courts with an impartial body of jurists.

YES! A FAMILY MEMBER DISTORTS MANY OF HER CHILDHOOD MEMORIES. fALSELY ACCUSING PEOPLE OF LYING TO HER AND ABOUT HER, BLAMES EVERYONE ELSE FOR HER TERRIBLE LIFE, BUT, NEVER HERSELF.
