Caring for a family member with mental illness
An interesting wrinkle I don't see talked about a lot...
I work from home and also take care of my mother who suffers from sudden late onset Schizophrenia. She will go a few weeks being somewhat self suffecient but some days like this one she gets stuck in the audio hallucinations that often come across as very threatening to her.
Today is one of those days and to be honest I'm struggling.
I'm lucky enough to have solid support systems in my friends and professional network but it's hard man.
Idk why i'm posting this here - hopefully someone reads this and can relate.
I love ya'll.
