Mad not Bad.

People suffering from a Mental Health disorders can be violent at times specially if they go untreated for years or if their not taken seriously. PTSD is a cruel thing to have because it takes your soul your guts your bnottle your nerve. Stress can make people do terrible thing's and if others know what buttons to press then one can be a powder keg waiting to go off. Being bullied by a parent can do awful damage to a child and that child must then grow up broken. Never judge a person unless you've walked a mile in their shoes.

I want to say so much but fear being judged or having the pee taken out of me. I think some days I would of been better brought up in a war zone. Mental abuse is far worse than any other forms of abuse because the mental stays with you for ever.

Dodo, I am so very sorry for all you have been through. I understand how hard it is to ever heal from mental abuse. I hope that you won't think that any of us would ever judge you for what you might say. We are here to support and care about each other.

I totally agree with you but also for a lot of people they are not intentionally pressing buttons. I've been in the situation for the past five years that just being around a certain person is enough. I'm not trying to press the buttons and I don't know how to not press them. It's as though just by being alive I press this persons buttons.

This has resulted in my mental health and that of my children being affected. I have discovered that this is because the person is on the wrong treatment - they are only on anti-depressants when they should be on mood stabilisers and they also do not engage with any talking therapies.

This person would like me to provide all their talking therapy but I am not able to do this as I have to look after my own responsibilities. Both of my children have stress related illnesses and I have to focus on them.

It has been a nightmare for everyone but I am powerless to do anything about it. They have the power to seek the right help not me. It is very difficult.

Please don't think I am doubting what you are saying - I just don't want you to think that when people press those buttons that they are always doing it intentionally.

I think I know what you mean and your right.

VERY WELL SAID THE SAD TRUTH AND YOUR LIFE IS FOR EVER A MESS AND DOCTORS CAN NOT SPEND TO MUCH TIME I FOUND A NEW DOCTOTER

BUT I SHOWED HIM THE OLD MED THAT WAS NOT RIGHT FOR ME BUT

HE WENT A LONG WITH THE SAME THING NOW I WISH I DID NOT SHOW

HIM ALL THAT

I just wanted to say, I'm sorry you're feeling this way - you need to take care of yourself, both Dodo777 and annomousme, safe distance and time do let a person heal from mental abuse... You have more strength and power than you know, as much as it may not feel that way right now. We all know you can't make someone else take medicine or seek counseling if they don't want to, but you can and should do your very best for YOU. Take care.
