Everyone I'm having a REALLY hard time with this. My mom who I love dearly attempted suicide Sunday evening. My mom is happily married for 33 years now, has wonderful family support who visits weekly, has 2 grandkids who they visit weekly. All in all I see my parents atleast twice a week if not more, as does my brother. My mom is a give it all type and has given everything she has to her job for the last 11 years and their were some recent changes there that made her feel less than NEEDED but I dont know how that could push her to this. Looking back on it we missed signs. She thought she was going through menapause as she was feeling down so we ordered her a book as she requested, did go to a family doctor for anti depresents but didnt tell us about it, gave away a few items to her sister which we didnt know about, and gave us our baby books. We thought it was simply her gift to us as we started families and she wanted us to carry on the baby books for ours and thought it would be encouragement. Regardless, while I was over my mom and dads house on Sunday she made dinner, sat and talked to me for a while about nothing really important, gave me a kiss goodnight because she was feeling tired, did the same to my dad, and walked into her bedroom and proceeded pills in hopes to not wake up. My dad went to bed a few hours later and didnt want to disturb her so he layed next to her without attempting to wake her. in the morning she is normally up and didnt wake up so my dad started shaking her, etc...no response...ambulance, etc to the hospital. We look EVERYWHERE for perscriptions as she had taken 1 cold pill and told us about it, and will often take an ambien to sleep when she is really tired so we were trying to figure out if the cold pill had an adverse affect of mixing...We couldn't find anything, no bottles, nothing. She proceeded to sit in her bed and take all but one pill that I found in her drawer the next day with a bottle of water that we found on the floor between the bed and night stand. She thought this threw, she didnt want to wake up, and we can't figure out what in the world she would do that for. Why she didnt turn to us to get help first. Why our love for her and her love for us and her grandkids wouldnt overpower anything that she may be struggling with. How should could leave her husband, kids, and grandkids without us knowing why...no note, nothing. I didnt leave her side at the hospital, neither did my dad or brother from Monday at 7am through transport to the mental health facility Friday evening...we love her terribly and need her around. She's now in a mental health facility trying to figure out what's going on but currently we have no answers and are desperately seeking them. We are unable to reach her and visiting hours are tomorrow but I needed to ask if anyone knows what may have happend? is there a state of mind you can get in where you dont think about the good, you dont think about what you may be doing to others and you only concentrate on the bad? She will hug me and love me, she will hug my baby girl and say how much she loves her and her other grandchild, but then turn around and do this? How can that be? We are all financially stable, no verbal or physical abuse, nothing...shes the last person I would have expected this from. Anyone help?
