My mom has been in and out of the hospital 3 times this year and each time the psychologists tell me that my mom is Bipolar, but my mom is in Hard core denial. She refuses to get treatment and even admit that she is Bipolar. She believes it is all due to menopause. The times she was hospitalized she had severe manic episodes and they had to suddate her. I feel like I am running out of options...the doctors tell me that because she is not hurtiing herself or others they cannot make her accept treatment. My mom refuses to work and have little to no money to pay her bills. Her phone and internet have been cut off and she may be kicked out of her house. She just wants me to take care of her and act like there is nothing wrong. She is either VERY depressed or nasty to me when she is manic. The truth is I have been taking care of her since I was 8 years old and I don't know how much more I can help her with. When is it enough? When do say I have done enough? How can I help her if she refuses to get help? I just need someone to talk to that understand what it is like deal with all this.
