Update on Mum.

Thursday, 6 March 2008
Today has been a very bad day. My mum basically said that she didn't want to fight anymore and wanted to end it all. By the time I got there she was screaming that she didn't want me there as she'd said goodbye to me and didn't want me anymore. I knew it had to be bad when my dad phoned me in tears. She had been very aggressive towards him and he was scared to leave her alone for a minute as she'd tried to grab her tablets and take them all at once.

With my help he spoke to the doctors and managed to get an appointment at the local psychiatric hospital for 6pm this evening. I have to admit that I couldn't go as I was scared they would admit her.

They have arranged for the home support team to come round everyday and support my dad and take over her care and medication. They can also take her to the day centre where they have classes in things such as relaxation that can help with her recovery.

Thank you all for you kind messages and support, they are much appreciated.

  1. Hi Sarah, Just to let you know i am thinking of you and your dad. I feel for your mum, sometimes it is so hard when you suffer from depression as it is an illness that some people do not understand and can be so lonely for the person going through it and for the people around them. Stay strong Maria x
