My daughter is in a bad way. She has cut 3 times this week She will not listen to any advice, says see does not need any support group. She told me she wentot the liquor store and bought some 100% proof liquer and drank 3/4 of it in about an hour. Sh esaid sheis self medicating and she has done thatin the past. Her husband was really upset when he got home. She said cutting and drinking is her way of dealing with "things". She will not stay on her meds ,stops counseling and pdoc's has never followed through, sayd pdoc'sdo not help and to be truthful, the one she as not is a jerk. he come in and stand with a clip board,and stays abot 3-5 minutes ask a few ?'s doesn't really listen to he rtgrying to explain how shefels. he will say ok we'll increase or decrease, such and such andonly sees her every 3 months. She has no life, terified of leavin gher house. Her husband is getting exasperated andi don't blame him. He say when he come homefrom work, he ask if she wants otgo for a walk, go to a matinee, goto the park, etc. She says leave me alone. She is afraid t obe admitted to the hospital, bu tsays she will go to an intensive outpatient classes. Sheis getting a ot worse the better, and sh edoes not take her meds. She says she wants to be happy. I told her theonly way she is going to be hapy is help herself, seek help , stick with it , take her meds she has to stick with her program. She also has asthma and way over uses it. shewill no ttake the advair, the preventative med, thati suppose to lesson the asthma attacks. She is psycologically addicted to her asthma meds. Im at theendof my rope. I tell her she has to do it , We , all the family is ther for her, but she isthe one who has to help herself. Compared to her i feel like mine is so mild, although i feel pretty bad right now, worrying about her stresses meout. Never know when sheis going ot cut thoe wrong place. Thanks for any response......
