Re: FEELING SHIT AS MY MUM IS GETTING ILL AGAIN!

Thank you for your thoughtful reply Tawny. I'm so sorry to hear you've suffered so much as a result of mental illness in others close to you :-( There doesn't really appear to be any support for families and carers of those with MH issues - certainly not that I've ever found. I found this group toda...

FEELING SHIT AS MY MUM IS GETTING ILL AGAIN!

Re: Mental illness can affect us all

I've just posted as I could scream as my mum is getting ill once again. We've only had a couple of months respite since she 'got better' after her last episode (she's had depressive episodes for the past 44 years) and here we go again - meaning months and months of her behaviour making me, my husban...

Re: Lonely

Hi, I've just posted as the daughter of a depressive mum - I totally empathise with your feelings of needing to remove yourself from the situation for the sake of self preservation. It does NOT make you a horrible person! You MUST do it for your sake, it's not being selfish, it's taking care of your...

Re: Please help. Am I responsible for my mum and her illness

Thank you for your reply. It's a pretty bleak prospect isn't it...the knowledge, as you say, that in reality she only has me and my dad as her best support. I don't have much time for the mental health professionals TBH after years of dealing with them on mum's behalf so yes, it's down to us to stay...

Please help. Am I responsible for my mum and her illness

Hello all I'll try to be brief. My mum has suffered with a mental illness - diagnosed? / misdiagnosed? over the past 40 years as anxiety, depression, bi polar and any other number of illnesses. Anyway, she is now having anxious / depressive episodes on a yearly basis, lasting 4 or 5 months at a time...
