i'm almost 18 years old and ive been having problems with my mom for a really long time. we both clash a lot and we dont really get a long too well, but a lot of it has to do with the fact that my mom is completely all over the place. one minute shes crying, the next 2 minutes she'll be happy, laughing again, and then angry. this behaviour really messes with me, and with my dad too.
my mom has been through a lot, and i know she suffers from depression even though its never really been diagnosed but i do know that for a fact. she feels hopeless a lot, she is very inconsistent, she drinks at night till late, does things at odd times.
i was sure that she was bi polar because her anger gets so extreme sometimes, and she goes from 1 to 10 in a second. and all that goes through my mind is that she isn't well.. something isn't right. the fighting that goes on between us is awful, and a lot of it is her fault but i defintly do not help the situations either.
we have been trying to get her to get help for a long time, and she still hasnt. she thinks she will get drugged up, and she doesn't want that. but i am going to bring her and my dad in to my next session with my psycologist and she wont know the reason why until she is in there..
anyway i guess i was so sure she was bi polar becuase it made so much sense. but me and my psycologist talked about it for an hour and she told me that she isn't from what i told her about mymother.
i reay want to get her help becuase i dont want to live like this, i just want to see her happy and everyone around her happy.
one step at a time i guess.
teh sad thing is that my dad sits back and takes it and freaks out about it all the time, but won't make her get help.
i suffer from depression and ibs, and i think she makes both of those things a lot worse.
i could never tell her that though.
