      I have a beautiful 26 year old daughter with a mental illness in which she refuses to believe she has...she has a lot of anger issues and a superiority complex...this has been extremely difficult for me and she rejects any type of help and advice from anyone and she has run away to miami once more where she says its a happy place for her...I deal with the questions of what did I do or didn’t do in her life to make her this way...this is all I can say for now...I am at school working on finals so I don’t want to get too emotional..needless to say, she lost her baby because of terrible medical advice..and now there is the guilt and shame from that on top of everything else as well as health issues with her mentally and physically..from a praying mom..and hopeful mom...heartbreak

        • I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. Having worked in the field, I haven seen this behavior a lot, including in myself. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I can’t tell you the number of times, as a younger woman, that I would get to feeling better and subsequently quit taking my medication. I would crash and the cycle continued. I understand a little of what you are going through. It is ludicrous for people to blame or question you. Just wanted to touch base with you. Your post moved me. Contact me if you like. I would enjoy hearing from you

        • I don’t know if my reply came through but, I was saying in so many words, I am at a loss for she is out of touch and reach. The more I tried to help, the more anger she showed...I was working and going to school, when I was with her she complained the entire time about something. She is like a yo yo in her mind. Narcissistic behavior...thanks for sharing your story as well.
