Hi all. My friend anglvsgod invited me to join because we come from similar backgrounds. While my mom is still alive, her mental illness makes it difficult to be a mother. I wanted to share why I joined because I hope to not offend those on this board that have lost their mother. My mom is also schizophrenic and undiagnosed bipolar (I think). She was finally diagnosed with schizophrenia when I went away to college after some very delusional behavior but has yet to seek proper help. When I am home, I am the adult in the situation and at 25, I still feel very much like a kid. I just want a mom that I can go to when I need help and not the other way around. I find myself pulling away from her every day. While I can still see her, she has never been a supportive or loving mother because I don't think she knows how. I am not sure I have ever processed my thoughts on how difficult it has been and this group might be the place to process my disconnect with my mother. How does one deal with the emotional loss of a mother?
