It’s such a struggle being a parent, then add on a child with depression and anxiety and the guilt mounts, I think mostly because you feel the stigma and there isn’t anyone to talk too. Prayers for grace and peace. Two things we all need a little more of.
- Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am so deeply sorry for both of your losses. I am also very sorry for the years of sadness, fear and judgement you, your son, and your family has endured. There needs to be more support for individuals of all ages, especially adolescents & young adults, regarding mental illness. Why it is not considered a medical necessity is beyond me. Prayers for peace and comfort during this difficult time.
- This is so true! It happens everyday and it hurts these kids as much if not more than the parents. Our children need support not scorn, blame, and dismissal. If more people showed compassion instead of judgement the pain may be less for everyone that loves a child, sibling, friend or spouse with mental illness.
- Thank you for this!my 26 yr old daughter was recently diagnosed with BPD and it’s just the beginning.As past behaviors are becoming more clear to me now,each day a better understanding i’m learning! So far family members have nothing else to say but ask “why didn’t you do something before?” No one knows,no one understands until they experience it themselves
Thank you for sharing this,my daughter has bpd,we have been living just as you described for the last 10 years. It’s so hard every day, but the judgement from other people, even the mental health professionals,is that extra cloud
How timely. Today is my husband’s brother’s birthday. He would have been 56. He committed suicide in 2012. He was my husband’s only sibling. It broke our hearts in a way that I cannot explain. I want to see mental health wellness aggressively pursued in this country. We can do better. We must do better. Because I can’t bear for another family to hurt the way we have.
I’ve been praying over my boys for a long time for that to be broken. I believe in getting medical/mental help but I also believe in fighting with the Word of God. That spirit of suicide will not come to my house.
