Caring for an adult daughter with MH problems
Hello, my name is Anne and it’s my first time on this site. I am 66 and live with daughter aged 29 . She has been diagnosed with bi- polar, borderline personality disorder and ptsd.
She also has physical health problems with asthma being the most problematic. I have chronic arthritis in both knees and left hip . I had my left knee replaced this year and it’s not been a great success!
Life is very hard. Although I’m here for my daughter I get abuse on a daily basis sometimes physical. I deal with self harm and suicide attempts. The stress is now beginning to tell on me. I have a stomach ulcer and am being investigated for tia.
I get no help at all for my own problems and very few people I can talk to about it.
Sorry for the long post!
