I am Kitt and I don't believe we have met but I am so glad your back here and please stay with us. Let us help.
I have 2 grown adult children who are at opposite ends of the spectrum as far as understanding mental illnes.
I brought both of them to the therapist with me early in treatment so they could ask question and they got all their questions out.
The next week when I went back alone to therapy, my therapist said, what did I think about how my children's discussion with her had gone?
I said well my son got it but my daughter did not. My therapist said Bingo......your right on.
My daughter wanted the therapist to tell her how to help me with a "quick cure". What could she do to get me out of the house and back in the mainstream? You know as I do, there is no quick cure. It takes tons of work and babysteps. Some days are good and than like a boomerang you get struck with anticipatory anxiety. The what ifs?
My son understood and accepted the therapist explanations. Miles apart they were and both my children.
So I would see if your daughter could come with you to the therapist and let her have time to ask questions, and then if she doesn't get it, you keep on working with your therapist and accept that she just can't be the person you need to count on.
Use us, use your firends, use your therapist.
Please stay with us.................we are family.
