I wanted to post this in the smiley room

Postby stressed » Sat Oct 13, 2012 11:34 am

:) but I thought that probably wouldn't be appropriate :?

Anyways I just found out my brother has been sectioned and that he has been
sectioned far far away.

Cue..long shouty post in the rant room...lots of frantic phone calls..loads of stess and tears...and a sharp, sudden worsening of my depression. :cry:

But that hasn't happened. Obviously i'm not singing and dancing in the street...
but i'm o.k. with the news, I can accept it.

It's a new and strange feeling for me, I don't feel guilty about it.

It feels liberating and I think I like it. x

It's hard feeling that it's your responsibility to manage someone's mental health when it's actually totally out of your control. The pressure can be immense. It's no wonder you feel liberated that he's now in the hands of people who are trained to deal with his issues and who have some emotional distance from it. Take advantage of this rest to look after yourself xxx
