cry well this is the first time i've been in here. i have depression and i'm bipolar. went to see my shrink 4 days ago. she upped my meds. and added one. i guess i should tell yaw i've been struggling with this and other things for 5 years. i had a breakdown 5 years ago. i've been so worried that i'm about to relaspe. hope not. i'm so tired. sad. very sad. the sadness has been here for couple of months. then this past weekend my 32 year old son jumped on my husband. hit him. it was crazy. he's never done anything like that before. him and his wife and 13 year old son live with us. and even after all that my husband let them stay. i feel so ashamed, disapointed in my son. it hurts. i have been crying alot. worried about my husbands mental health. he has high anxity. he says he's ok. this is my only child. they've been here 6 months. i took care of his wife during her back surgry. we've went above and beyond. how could this happen. my shrink said forgive and time will heal. i wish time would hurry up and they would move out. they are suppose to when schools out. i just can't take much more. thanks for listening.confused

Hi Tiny,

You sure have endured a lot. But I do agree, time does heal, but sometimes it doesn't seem soon enough. But it will happen. Your husband is a good man to let them stay even after your son hit him. I guess it must have been a misunderstanding of some sort. It sounds like they worked it out. So go with it.

Try to relax with all of this. Do some meditation or some deep breathing when you get tense or anxious. I know that you will be feeling better soon. Keep us posted on how things are doing.

Hugs, Karen

patience is a virtue!! and being patient sometimes stretches the virtue. hold on, sounds like the situation wil improve soon. try to de-stress a bit. walking is good, it is a good mental distraction. hoping the medication adjustment kicks in soon. you have been brave in posting, so keep being brave. with compassion, jamie.

thank you karen and jamiee for your kind words. i'll try to walk. the place i live though has alot of pit bull dogs around. i also have alot of phobies. driving in the rain is one of them. before i get off on all that, it's 2am here. i couldn't sleep. i woke up crying. i can't seem to stop crying. i've tried medation. my mind just wonders off. i feel helpless. alone. scared. i live in a small town. so i have to drive an hour to see a counseler. i don't have one yet. i got a shrink. but she just gives me meds. i only have 1 friend and my sister i can talk to. they try to understand me. i'm sorry i sound so pitful. i've got to get better. i love my son with all my heart. but i can't take much more. i would have never treated my parents the way he has done. i didn't raise him that way. what happened? i'm jumping all over the place with my sentences. thanks for listening.

Hi Tiny,

I am glad that you have a friend coming to see you. That is wonderful. I bet you will have a lot of catching up to do. I hope that you two have a good time together.

Keep on trying. We hit bumps in the road and then it levels out. That is a part of life I guess. Never really easy, but we muddle through. I hope that you are feeling better now.

Keep posting, I think it does us good.

Hugs, Karen

well, my friend came and went. it was nice seeing her. my son and 13 year old grandson left yesterday to stay a week and do some work for my sons grandmother. i needed the time away from my son. well he called this morning and said that him and his grandma got in a big arguement. and he's coming home this evening. he was mean to her to. i know he was. what's wrong with him? ever since the fight between him and my husband i can't hardly look at him or his wife. i want them to move out of here. i don't know how much more i can take. he's so dissrespectful. i did not raise him that way. he's not on drugs. he can't afford them. he's so angry. anyways maybe he'll find a job and things will get better. i don't want this stuff to put me back in the hospital. thanks for listening.

yeah understand tiny. i have done 28 stints myself. if he does get some work i agree this will definately help with his mind and affect, if work is hard to find then i would suggest some voluntary work in a field that interests him. keep well, with healings to you guys.

hi yaw, well the unthinkable happened yesterday. my son was threating to cut his throat. it was awful. i called 911. i had too. they took him to a hospital. i thought maybe he'd get some help. but they let him go today. his wife is on her way to get him. i'm afraid he's going to be so mad. they didn't give him any meds. told him to follow up with a doctor. he has no money. i'm scared for him. and me. thanks for listening.

Tinybit,

I am so sorry to hear this. I hope that your son is able to get the help that he needs. This must seem so traumatic for you right now. The one thing that I can say is to take this one day at a time, kind of like what you told Christi. I know this has to be such a difficult time right now. Know that you are always welcome to come here for advice. We all care so much about you and want you to feel better. Take care my friend. Know that I am thinking about you and praying for you and your son.

Hugs, Karen
