One phone call later…

… we have been told to pick her up. Because she wants to spend the night at home and see how it goes. And then she’ll be discharged. Nobody is listening.

We are helpless.

I don’t know what to do.

Feel

So

Empty

And

Tired.

What’s the point?

I can’t see it anymore.

  1. I’m so sorry. I hate ‘the system’. I have suffered not even a fraction of what you have been through and are going through. I’m one of the lucky ones…the mental and physical illnesses are mine to carry, not my children. My son is disabled but functional and won’t die from his issues, and the most I have to worry about is that he will live his life in a state of constant loneliness and confusion. Even then, we’ve have to fight and advocate like crazy just to get him *any* help at all … and he’s only 12 yet.

    I know this won’t help much, but I wanted you to know I’m reading your words and they are resonating in me. I hope your step daughter somehow finds a way into the system in a way she can’t escape so you can have the peace of knowing she’ll at least be alive when you next see her, and that your son starts to see the good things in life and learns that not only the bad stuff counts. Hard wish there, I know, when you have a sister who wants to die, a dad who died when you were little and a mom who has fought so hard she can barely stand up anymore. You’ll do it though. You’ve done it many times, it seems, and you’ll do it again.

    Whoa…that’s too much advice from a stranger. I’m Grainne. I’m typing too much but I’m thinking of you.
