I'm sorry I read this post after I replied to your first one. I mentioned the saying, "when it rains it pours" in the other post and here you are titleing your post the same way!
Lindz, I think you need to start showing your true colors! You can't let your family to continue thinking that you are this STRONG person and able to handle everything.
You're having your own health issues and you need to be taking care of those as well. Sure your family is going through a lot right now, but so are you and they need to know that.
I think you need to keep a low profile and deal with things in increments so that you can absorb things bit by bit. Only do what you can, but please don't over extend yourself. Your family really needs to know how this is affecting you and I'm sure they will pull back some and try to handle more things on their own.
Believe me...I've been there in a way. Things will get done and things can be worked out if everyone is honest with each other. You've done nothing wrong! But you do need to take care of yourself too despite all the terrible things that are going on around you!
Wishing you wellness, for yourself and your family.
Keep us posted!
Why did you lie? Why won't you consider going to the hospital? I've read your other posts and it seems you've tried everything else but this. This may be what works for you.
You will be in a controlled enviornment and they have a better chance to really try different combinations of medications and keep close tabs on you to see how you are reacting to them.
You will be around different therapists and group meetings all day and seeing a pdoc quite often since the RN's will be giving them daily updates.
Your therapist wouldn't have said that comment to your mom unless she thought it was necessary.
Please reconsider. You are just as important than anyone else in your family and you shouldn't think otherwise. Everyone has their own set of health problems. You need to stop holding things in. Your issues are just as important. You're only setting yourself up for a meltdown.
Please do the best thing for yourself.
Wishing you wellness!
