i'm not sure how to take this. my mom has no plans to research and learn about my disorders. if i ask her to she says she will. but it upsets me that she doesnt want to. if it were my daughter i would want to know all i could so that i could help her. and in the past i have done research on things for her and about her illnesses. i dont know if i just need to give it time or what. but it hurts my feelings and then i feel really silly that it does. this is a major thing in my life and i think that people close to me should/would feel the same way and want to know all they can. am i wrong?
I am bipolar, have social anxiety, panic attacks w/apporaphobia , diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure. Life is short but i am not.

Mine is too, not only will she not research it, but she will not acknowledge it either.  She tells me all is well with me and that I shouldn't believe what the Dr. and couselors are saying, etc.
 
For a while, I was really, really upset.  But now I have come to terms with it, and try to stay on top of things and if she ever comes to me and wants to know more I am prepared to share.
 
But I have learned there is nothing I could say or do to make her believe or listen to me.
 
Hang in there !! :-)

thank you both very much. i dont feel so silly for letting it bother me. she says shes glad she knows it has a name that enought for her. she loves me and is proud of me no matter what so thats good i guess. i should just focus on that and not the other. thank you again though.

whenmy husband was diagnosed and his brother did not want to believe he had a mental illness he lamblasted me and told me no way. well a few weeks ago I was at work and my husband had a manic episode and I got the call ,wanting to know what we could do with my husband. The ignorance of others can be hurtful and mean.Do what you can and if you know in your heart you are doing all you can then be happy with yourself. You can't make someone believe something they don't want to accept.
