I’m just like you. I combed the internet for some place to discuss my child, whom I love, but have reached the edge of the abyss with. I want to vent to someone who doesn’t think their well meaning advice will fix everything, or judge whether I’ve enabled my child, or that I should draw a firm line in the Sand and leave my child on the other side… Expecting them to cross-over because all kids love their parents, ultimately. Because those of us that know, know that those things aren’t necessarily true.
I’m just like you. Looking for answers how to get the best treatment when we can’t even nail down a concrete diagnosis, when HIPPA prevents me from being able to help my adult child to the best of my ability, when my adult child wants to improve but their mind self-sabotauges every progress.
I’m just like you. I have bruises. Mental, spiritual, emotional, and as of last night; physical bruises. All inflicted on me by the one I would die for… But don’t want to die from. Emotional Bruises from a spouse that does their best to support but has their own personal demons. They spiral into depression the worse things get so that when I need them the most, they are the least capable of supporting me. And, my other child who cannot come to terms that the behaviors they witness are truly involuntary. So they feel cheated that bad behavior gets attention and they judge me accordingly.
I’m just like you. But I feel so damned alone.
