Info help for family therapy please

Hi I’m looking for information on family therapy. I’m not sure where to start looking. I live an hour and half away from my family so distance is an issue. Also not all my family are willing to come along. My dad has finally agreed but my sister doesn’t want to go because she feels it won’t work. I ...

Re: Partner really struggling- continuous

Hi Claire and upwards, It’s ldg but under another username (I couldn’t log in with the other details and as it’s silly o’clock in the night this one will have to do). Thank you for your kind replies and for reminding me I’m not alone. To answer your question upwards, yes he was diagnosed a long time...

Re: how can i help my daughter stay safe?

Hi Calico, That sounds like a really hard situation, I really feel for all of you. I know how scary it can be not bowing if you can keep a loved one safe and at the same time really empathising with the torture that’s going on in their head. Sadly I know as well how useless the nhs mental health ser...

Re: Rock bottom

Thank you very much Chris :) xx

I actually helps me to show support for other people- but hey if a selfish motivation helps someone else smile!? ;)

Re: Husband in a bad place

Hi nh Sorry to hear it’s such a struggle at the moment, I’ve been there with my partner a few times and it’s never easy. I don’t know if anyone has ever said this to you before but one of the best oieces of advice I was ever give was that I needed to detach from my partner’s ‘energy’. I know the wor...

Re: Rock bottom

I’m with you, and I understand at least a bit what it’s like for you. What you said about friends being happy leading normal lives and feeling left behind- shit, exactly how it feels sometimes. You never imagine that when you’re falling in love with someone that there’ll be this down the road. I hop...

Re: is there no-one in the same/similar situation? I thought this was a support forum

I’ve had the same problem. To be fair I’m not on very often. I didn’t see your previous post, though. Apologies. What was it about, if you don’t mind me asking?

Re: Would really appreciate some advice

Sorry things are so hard for you and your partner, it sounds really tough. I’ve been there and it’s no picnic. I’m not sure what I can advise cos I’m in an almost identical situation but I guess all the usual things: give him support, listen, have boundaries about how much you can do and look after ...

Re: Husband in a bad place

Hi You’re not alone in this by a long shot. I sense you feeling fed up- same. Supporting my partner while writing a dissertation and no time for looking after myself properly like seeing friends, and no sex life at all cos of his meds and no promise that it’ll ever really change. Its been like this ...

Re: I don't know what to do

Hi dragonfly, I read your post and just wanted to say I’m so sorry things have got so hard for you. Please know. You’re not alone. If you were making it up I don’t think you would be on a forum here at Sane. I’m not sure I am right to give you advice as I’m not in your situation, I just wanted to sh...
