my mom has depression and I need help

Postby Livvie » Thu Jan 04, 2018 12:36 am

My mom has been depressed since I can remember and usually, because of her medicine, she acts pretty normal. Maybe "normal" isn't the right word... predictable might be better. Her moods even out and she seems somewhat happy until recently. My brother moved out of the house and as a result, my mom is lashing out, refusing to take her medicine, blaming everyone (myself included), and talking about suicide.

I don't know how to help her.
I have been having anxiety attacks and I am lost on what to do anymore
Any time I try to talk to her, she ignores me, or gets angry, or goes to her room and locks the door and sleeps.

This is very worrying, she needs her meds, is there anyone she’ll listen to? Maybe your brother? Get them to spell out the importance of the meds. Sending love xxx
