Re: Feeling in such a bad way

Hi kitten111, I'm really sorry to hear things are so bad for you at the moment and can appreciate how upsetting this may be. First of all, can I say that you certainly aren't a failure as you obviously keep trying different things to move your life along and that takes strength and guts and the fact...

Re: My friend commited suicide because of elefriends site

Hi eeyore,

I am so sorry for your loss. This is tragic and certainly should not be allowed to happen on a mental health forum. I am thinking of you at this sad time and my condolences to your friend's family. Aileen. x

Re: Son's Suicide Thoughts

Hi Fearful, Really sorry to hear that your son is having thoughts of suicide. This must be so stressful for you and can appreciate this as my husband talks of suicide a lot, but has never acted upon it thankfully. It is really worrying I know. Can you maybe share this information with another family...

Re: Father

Hi e1m8, Sorry to hear what your father is going through. I don't have any words of wisdom, but just wanted you to know I was thinking of you. I know you say your father doesn't want any help, but can you speak to a family member/friend about this so that they are aware of the situation? Maybe they ...

Re: New

Hi Mandyp, I totally get what you are going through as I too often feel like that with my husband's mental health (Mixed Personality Disorder and OCD). Like you, I often feel like it is a one way conversation in our house where everything is about him and the only time it is about me is when he crit...

Re: personality disorder and pseudo psychosis

Hi freeurselfandmind, So sorry to hear what your son has went through so far. I don't really have many words of wisdom as have no experience of Psychosis, but my husband has Mixed Personality Disorder and is in his 50's. So I realise that dealing with him will be quite different to dealing with your...

Re: Need advice please

Hi Deeda, I'm sorry to hear about you and your husband's present situation. This must be extremely difficult for you both. Would it be possible for you to register your husband with a GP and then go along with him to see them? Maybe he is a bit scared of facing his problems and that is why he is tak...

Re: Can't support my toxic family member anymore. Advice?

Hi Jinijanija, You are really brave to have gone through many years of emotional abuse in supporting your loved one and now are putting yourself first in realising you can't help them. Your own well-being must come first and you have done so well in realising this. I support my husband who has menta...

Re: Family member doesn’t accept MH condition

Hi Katiemorag, I'm sorry I don't have any words of wisdom, but just wanted you to know I am thinking of you and your family member. It is clear by your post that you really care about them and want to help them. Would it be possible to inform their GP of their wish to stop their medication? If your ...
