Hi everyone,

Let's start with the basics, I'm in my middle 20's and doing college.

I suffered bullying during most of my school years, my mother raised me alone, and had a partner in previous relationship that didn't treated me very well.

I have anxiety for a few years at least(fruit of what I mentioned above, plus my family has a history of mental health problems), and in the middle of the last year I was starting to develop symptoms of depression. That's when I decided to seek help, before that I thought that I simply didn't need it, and so I found professional help.
But the epidemic came, and so I found myself unable to go the place of help(do to a logistical issue).

I don't have many friends(maybe 2 or 3), and none which I'm close with. I used to have a close friend in high school, but after a changed cities due to college, we've grown apart, so I fell lonely some times.
I've never had any romantic relationships with any girl, and I think I would do like to try someday, but I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon, my anxiety is particularly strong in this aspect.

My main triggers of anxiety are social situations, so this last year I've had very few anxiety crisis, and most of them minor. College started have classes online, and go out daily with my 2 dogs(they helped me a lot in dealing with the anxiety), so I don't stay all day at home.
I even managed to pass in a minor position in a company close to home, but unfortunately was not able to actually work in it, due to a bureaucratic problem with my college, but I still call it a win.

My main problems currently is related to my mom mental health, she is the only person I'm close with, and I'm really worried. She has fibromyalgia, and suffers from chronic pain, that come from her own issues at youth(my grandfather was an untreated bipolar), and overwork(she diminished now, but still left scars). From time to time she suffer these crises that take a toll not only physical, but emotionally too.
In her worst crisis, she starts to say that her life is meaningless and she would rather die(she is in one of those currently, that one of the reason I actually created a account here instead of just thinking about creating it). I'm really afraid about it. I would like to expand in this issue more later, but I did not know where should I post it. Help here would be very appreciated.

I think this cover the main bits of it.

It was a bit lengthy, but anyway thanks for reading.

Excited to be here and willing to help if anyone need it too.

Hi Aurin and welcome to forum :welcome:

Do your mom also go to a therapist and get external help?

While what you can do is trying to support and be there for her. It’s never easy doing it and it can become mentally taxing on you, so it’s really great that you want to help her.

I hope you manage to find a few tips on how to help your mom.
