    (Another newbie,) Hello there.

    I'm not really sure where to start with this thread, so I guess I'll start with the reason why I joined. ~ Saturday, me and my partner were due to meet my mum in town. I told her we were shopping, so she knew-only when we went to the pub where she was waiting to order food- she was angry and...

    Brother made mum with cancer feel suicidal

    It’s dominating my mind. Has done for over a year. Mum had cancer twice and I cared for her. Brother didn’t know I was caring as despite being half a mile away he wasn’t interested in seeing her. When he found out I was living with her and nursing her he told me “not to bother”. She died saying...

    I don't know where to go from here :(

    I can’t control the urges, I have to feel some sort of relief. I cant talk to anyone about it as they don’t understand, my mum calls me a drama queen, my husband doesn’t know, my gp tells me to stop but I can’t

    Is she Really On Drugs?

    My sister diagnosed with with BPD and she lies, emotionally bullies and begs my mum for money, and obviously my mum gives in. Usually she'll say she needs the money for food or to get a bus back to where ever she's staying. We've suspected she has been using the money for drugs or alcohol but...

    Does Tough Love Work?

    My sister apparently has BPD and a drug problem. She is now homeless after being kicked out of a charity homeless shelter, so is not living with a 'friend'. But she has no income so always begs, lies or emotionally bullies my mum for money. How do we get her to change and take responsibility...

    What's the solution?

    Apparently my sister has bpd, she's in her mid 30s now and has always caused problems. A couple of years ago she lost her flat because the landlord was selling it, so she ended up sleeping on 'friend's' sofas. She is unemployed and has been for many years, so she emotionally bullies my mum...

Although he had some moments of kindness, he was pretty detached from us growing up (in contrast with the rest of my family). I find this quite hard...
