    Letting Go of stuff

    All the pictures I drew for my mom, all the cards and postcards I sent her, the copy of my book I gave her, all this stuff was thrown out by my son whose intention was to quickly sell her house so she wouldn't be inclined to want to go back to it. He took her away to take care of her. He did it...

    Stopping/Refusing Medication

    My son had his first episode of psychosis in May and was prescribed Olanzapine as it is known here in the UK. I believe it is called Zyprexa in the US. His doctors recommended he takes it for a minimum of 3 months but my son refuses to take it anymore. He was prescribed a fairly low dosage. He...

    I don't think I'm relationship material

    I have recently tried dating again. Not sure if it's too soon after another failed relationship where it ended up being my fault again apparently. My first relationship was good at the beginning but after a little while he became verbally abusive and distant. When I asked him he just said he...

    Trying to make sense of the last 30 years.

    Hi everyone. My divorce finished a few months ago after being married over 30 years. I think I may move forward better if I understand what happened. Perhaps this is not the right place for 'victims'. If so please advise. Without going over all the characteristics of BPD or ASPD I can say that...

    Where do I go?

    I am obliged to live in a very small house (2 up. 2 down terrace) with my 30-year-old son and also, for much of the time, his 28-year-old girlfriend. My son obviously has 'undiagnosed' ADHD and clearly has anxiety and depression but he refuses to approach his GP about this. His girlfriend has...

    Lost my son

    I have spent the last 2 years trying to get back to being a proper mum. Unfortunately due to lack of help it hasn't happened. I voluntarily accepted my son needed to be in foster care. He has been gone for just under 2 weeks. Is it odd that I don't miss him? Nothing has changed for me, if...
