It's great to find a community like this, people willing to help each other through tough times and provide sage advice. I'm hoping someone can do the same for me. It all started about a year ago when my Grandma, my Mom's Mom, passed away from cancer. The two were very close and it's been really hard on my Mom. She told me she was feeling depressed but that she went to the dr and received anti-depressants along with sleeping pills. This was great, because it meant she was getting the help I felt she needed. However, this was apparently a big lie. She's been drinking, which she told me she hasn't, her house is a wreck and she's become a hoarder, and on Sunday night she attempted to take her own life. Her best friend called me and I sprung into action, talking with the therapists, psychiatrist, hospital...basically anyone I could to get advise. She was checked into a psych facility, however they don't provide the necessary support she needs. She gets to see a Dr for 30 minutes and is left to watch TV the remainder of the day. I totally agreed that this wasn't the right setting for her, she needs to talk with people and work for more than 30 minutes. Last night she was released and was in good spirits, staying with her best friend. I got a call this morning from that best friend and apparently last night she snuck drinking in and became extremely depressed again. My mom said she didn't care about if it hurt me to kill herself, she just wanted the paint to stop. Today she did go to the group therapy session today that I enrolled her in, but she tried to get out of it until her friend said she had to go. If she doesn't want the help, how do you "Make" someone get it? I can't watch her 24 hours a day, and it's not fair to my family to have to try and do that. I'm not sure what to do because she tells me everything I guess she thinks I want to hear, but then tells her friend other stuff. And I don't want her to stop talking to her best friend about this, so I can't ask my mom about it and betray her friends confidence. But if I check her into another psych facility, she's not going to get the necessary help she needs only seeing a dr for 30 minutes. Does anyone have any advice?
