I dont know where to turn with this. Im crying already before even typing this out.. My mum is mentally ill. She hears voices and has done since 2005, it is getting worse every year. In 2009 everything came to a head and she took an overdose, resulting in her being sectioned and I finally thought things were going to get sorted as the psychiatrists were now ready to listen to me about all the things that she has said and done and all the notes id found that she had written. She was sectioned for 6months when she was 'released' she stopped taking her medication. The psychiatrist supported her in that decision as she said it wasnt stopping the voices and it was reacting badly with her other medication (shes not a well lady anyway, has Hughes Syndrome, Lupus, Epliepsy and had a stroke at 19 before I came along two years later) She and my dad then split up New Year 2010, my mum moved out and my dad had to eventually sell the family home. He is now engaged and living with another women. He has 'washed his hands' of my mum really and I dont blame him after everything that she has said and done, and i understand that he has a new life now but I am so mad at him for just walking away. I am an only child and am the only person that see's my mum. She has no friends or family that are interested, she is very very difficult to deal with and her 'stories' that she comes up with are dangerous and could easily get people into trouble, serious trouble. So I do not blame anyone for not wanting to be involved. Last night was the night of my monthly visit (I live in a different city from my mum now, and try to see her once a month) It was horrific. We went out for tea and argued in the car on the way home. She told me that she knows I hear the voices too and I should just admit it. She told me that I also hear singing in my abdomen from an unborn baby (?!). I assured her that I dont. I have a recording on my phone of her talking the the 'voice' and telling it to stay away from me. She says 'Being sectioned was the biggest favour anyone could have done for me because when I find you, no matter how i kill you I wont go to prison' she just kept repeating it. I called my dad when I left after being there about 4 hours trying to make sure she was calm before i left. He did the phone equivilent of shrugging his shoulders and just said he doesnt know what to do, just leave her to it. I am so upset today, I cant pretend that theres nothing happening. Im worried for her safety. Why am I the only one that seems to be worried? Im sorry for such a long post that probably doesnt make any sense but I just needed to get it out.
