Hi tears, thank you for replying to me. I wish I could tell you my life story, but it would take forever! I've been abused for so long, yet somehow know that there is life out there. I travel a lot around Europe trying to help others like myself. I work with people with mental health problems, when I feel up to it, as I suffer from such chronic pain, but I am trying to give some help back to society. I would love my own thread, but am not sure how to use it as I am still quite new to the internet, maybe you can tell me. Look forward to hearing from you soon. Take care

Brittainy,

I think that is so great to hear someone who came from an abused background wanting to help other with some problems of their own. You must be a very caring person!... I know dealing with someone who has mental health problems can be very emotionally draining, my sister is a manic depressive. She does not understand like a diabetic needs insulin to survive, she needs her medication to survive also. She is currently in the hospital, unwilling to really cooperate and accept any help. She was doing may pschotic things that became a danger to her life... I had to step in because she would have died, but she sees me as her enemy. I love her very much and want her to be able to live a half-way descent life, to do that she needs much treatment. Hey you gave me a good idea, I might start a support thread for the families of the mentally ill. I just joined a group called NAMI (National Alliance for the mentally ill). I have found much support from them. Take Care,

Ji Jaskid. Mental illness is horrible, trying to treat people with Manic Depression is hard, but, by taking regular medication and talking through issues can help ease the problem. I've worked with many Manic Depressives and they have been such wonderful people. Please write again, I know you are going through a bad time, but be strong. You've got to look after yourself too. Take care

Hi Jaskid, I hope you are feeling less low, keep faith. My first childhood memory was of being abused. I know it sounds awful, but I dislike my parents for what they have done to me, but its me that has to change, not them. Each day I learn something new, and am slowly beginning to believe that the abuse was not my fault. It is hard sometimes, but you have to believe in yourself. Please reply. Its good to talk

Brittainy,

Thank you for your concern, and no I guess you can say I am still stuck at the same point. Oh it is so hard to keep the faith, but I know I always will because somehow(I don't know why) but God is holding me in the palm of his hand. I pray that he will continue to give me the strength to get through this life... Sometimes I feel like all I ever do is sacrifice everything for everyone elso but me. My husband says I am just selfish... maybe so... but I just wish I did not let everything get to me so bad... Tonight I am going to go try and visit my sister who is in the psych ward at the hospital... she blames me and all the family for all of her problems... she says she hates my gutts and wishes I would just die... I know that is only her disease talking but it hurts. I remember her before this... laughing... reading me bedtime stories and not so angry. She has no one, no friends but her family. Will her mind ever heal? I think she is going to be a thorn in my side for the rest of my life and I am willing to accept that... it's just hard... and it hard to keep being strong. Don't you ever just get so tired?

God Jaskid you sound so self sacrificing like i WAS untill i realised that I was not helping anyone but not helping myself first. You cant keep doing this to yourself, you are NOT selfish, you are NOT the cause of your sisters illness and you do not have to go on feeling so shit. The reason is that you are not taking care of little Jaskid...of YOU. Please do about face a.s.a.p!!!!!!!!! Blessings

Hi Jaskid, stop being so hard on yourself. It must be hard seeing your sister so ill, but thats not your fault. You have to take care of number one and that is YOU. It is hard seeing someone close to you suffer, my sister suffered a lot when I was so ill, but your sister will get through, it will be hard, but there is hope. God bless. You are in my thoughts.
