My mum is mentally ill.
She lives in Israel.
I live in Sydney Australia. 20 hours and 3 flights away.
I have a wife, daughter and son. They are my life.
I tried to convince my mum to fly here, but the illness has taken its toll and she has severe anosognosia. Not surprisingly she is refusing medication. She also refuses computers and dental work.
My mum does not speak fluent Hebrew in a country that speaks it. She has scared all her friends off. She is isolated.
We try to visit once a year. Sometimes she will refuse to see me.
Our phone calls, in general, consist of her yelling at me facts of royalty and persecution.
I love her dearly, but I am lost.
