I adopted a daughter in years past. As time progressed it became apparent that she was severely emotionally ill. She also has physical problems-chronic. Counseling has not helped her that much. I think I am dealing with the grief process here as I am realizing that my hopes and dreams for her ever having a normal life and being self sufficent are dying. I have had to adopt a caregiving role and am feeling tired and overwhelmed. I guess I need a support group for peole who have mentally ill family members who are probably never going to get well or improve. Does anybody know of one?
