Yes it was extremely difficult trying to help her. I supported her all that I could when she was willing to try to help herself. (I am old enough to be her mother and her own mother is extremely unhelpful to her.) When she was seeing her psychiatrist (OUR psychiatrist) and taking her meds there was so much improvement. Then she went off and became so very needy that she was sucking the life out of me. She would call and cry at all hours of the day and night. Finally I had to tell her I would be there for her if she would go back into therapy. She chose not to. I haven't heard from her since and worry about her and think of calling her, but put that out of my mind because there is no helping her until she is ready. I am trying hard to work on my own depression and must resist pulling myself down unnecessarily.

Happy trails to you!
