Re: How do you help your teen deal with the stigma of Mental Illness?

Hi @Elena, is kind of is but unfortunately all still relevant. We have not come far at all in 5 months & 2 weeks since my daughters breakdown last August but cross fingers that 2 weeks ago a change of medication may have brought a breakthrough and a tiny speck of hope for recovery. 

I really appreciate your message as I need reminding often to look after myself too. I forget myself amongst it all and have had a few times when I've really not been ok. 

 

Also, meeting with the school on Tuesday. Thanks for sending me some extra strength (I need it) as it's hard going in there as "the mother". I need to stay focussed.

Hey @LovingThruBlue please don't ever apologise for things not resolving in a nice, manageable timeframe!

Sometimes I think the biggest lie sold to us by television is the idea that issues can be sorted by the end of the episode. Life just is not that simple.

Please feel free to start a new thread whenever you want to. Robot Very Happy

 

How did the meeting on Tuesday go?
