Hello and welcome. I am Kitt and I am an RN that has worked 26 years in a small community hospital. I have a husband that was diagnosised with Crohn's years ago and has had 3 bowel resections so I know how this disease process can be. I also have a good friend that has had so many surgeries that she now has to hook herself up to hyperal every night.
She is less than 40 years old.
I would suggest your Mother talk with your physician if you would give your permission to discuss your medical issue and mental health problems with your Mother. He could tell her that you are very much in need of your meds and with your history you need someone to support you not judge you.
I have depression and I take my husband to some of my therapy sessions as he has a better understanding now that depression is not something you can just get over. I have also taken 2 of my adult children to therapy and let them ask all the questions they wanted. My daughter wanted a quick cure but my son got the understanding of the disease right away.
Your struggle is huge but your courage is commendable.
Please keep posting and let us support you.
