I don't have anyone irl that I feel comfortable sharing this with, so thanks for listening.
she's in a mental hospital right now and will be for at least a week I guess. she only gets one 10 minute phone call a week and she can't get any incoming calls. I really want to talk to her
she left a message on my phone the day before yesterday saying that she loved all of us. I can't believe that she intended for that to be the last time we heard her voice.
she's bipolar and absolutely refuses to take any medication anymore. she's tried every cocktail of meds you can think of with no success, so now she says she'd rather do electric shock therapy...which I guess they still do at the hospital she's at. Can you force someone to medicate their illness?
what could a doctor possibly say or do to help her get better? She's been in therapy my entire life. She's a doctor herself (retired).
I just had a baby this summer. My oldest son adores her. Why can't she see the positives in her life? Deppression is so hard and frustrating to understand.
