Mrs. C, I was just trying to get caught up on all the posts. I haven't been on lately because I just haven't felt good lately. Nothing to do with the side effects though. Had one of my darn seizures, and that will slow me down anyway.
But I sure agree with you about families and how they feel. At first when after my tumors were removed and my mentality went down, then I became depressed, my Mom and sister just didn't know how to treat me at all. My Dad, kids, boyfriend(now husband) were great! But my Mom and sister said I 'rambled", I need to 'just relax,' 'calm down',
'just forget about everything that's happened.'
When I asked what they meant that I rambled, they said that I just talked to much. I reminded them that I had to have speech for 6 months to learn to talk again. LOL All my friends said I didn't talk anymoe than I did before and that my mom and sister just can't handle that I am not mentally where I was before. I used to be the 'Rock' of the family.
But as for now, I kinda still must be. My sister called me in December crying because she was having an awful day at work and she just needed a shoulder to cry on.
And one day my Mom called needing to complain about my Dad. LOL By the way, I have 2 very good parents.
So, yes, families can have a hard time dealing with mental illnesses. That's why we have this board!!!!
Hugs to you all!
Ruthie
