I had a TBI 2 years ago, now having new issues, emotional, anger, irritation behaviour, anxiety. rationally explained while I cannot attend their anniversary party, Im scared of losing control, so thought best to keep stress levels down and not go. Took present to their house yesterday, painted the smile on, told them of an incident Occured. I have helped my parents, and yet again they cannot cope with mine. Dad told me he didn't understand and to get professional help and mum just shook her head and said yet again 'I do not know what to say to you'. I have always tried to support my parents, listening to my mum when my dad is in hospital again, visiting dad, he has a chronic terminal illness. out of 3daughters I am the most supportive even now, but it is not returned. I just want them to hug me and say they be there for me , it all falls on my lovely husband. We have 3 children, eldest one left home. I would never treat them like this, sometimes a hug and not judging helps. I have given my husband a lot to deal with but it has made us stronger. They are making my stress levels worse by pretending to be normal, which then I am more likely to behaviour irrational. I have told them to leave me alone if they cannot cope and do as my dad snarled at me yesterday 'let the professionals sort this out'. This is not the first time they have not been there for me in my life. I cannot understand this I would die for my children, I always will be there for them whatever they do, I think they call it unconditional love.......
