Guilt πŸ˜”πŸ˜”πŸ˜”

Don't know how bad some of u are but I struggle to go out at times and o never go alone...hence where I feel guilty.... My daughter ... I feel so so bad that at times I cannot be the mother she deserves... Oh I love her more than life itself... And it's so frustrating... I look at my family n friend's and oh how I would love to be like them and do normal things .

  • Now lets get something clear my friend - you have nothing to feel guilty about. If you had a broken leg or pneumonia would you feel guilty? No you would not. Just because your illness is psychological does not make it any the less serious or severe than a physical illness. Indeed, it is my contention that psychological illness is a far more difficult one to deal with - many people have no understanding or psychological illness - unless they themselves get it of course. So dont even begin to blame yourself for this illness and its consequences.

    I am sure that your daughter knows very well that this is not something you have just chosen to have. You did not wake up one morning and decide to have a psychological illness. So I say again - you have nothing to feel guilty about :-)

  • Don't feel guilty at all that will make you a lot worse I also don't go out if I do may be to the corner shop at that's a struggle I feel so weird walking. Also I have five beautiful sons I also think about them u would to be the mother who ca take them tin parks go on holiday etc but it's so difficult. I've suffered like this seven years even during my pregnancys it was hard I'm that scared I wouldn't get bloods done etc. I understand how you feel but plz don't feel guilty your daughter has a loving caring mother and I bet she's spoilt by you take care xx

  • Not too bad Jill thanks. Meant to be going to see a friend tonight but can see it far enough x how's you x

  • Hi there, maybe do you good to get out a wee while, try and go if you can.

    I'm ok had a nice long bath earlier (I'm always in the bath these days). Just made thick veggie soup and going to have a chicken dinner! 😊

    I think the keeping busy thing does help for sure!

    I hope you manage to go out later even just for a short time.
