The other day my mom got me crying and thinking more about suicidal thoughts. She asked me how I am going to pay my bills once I get social security because she isn't going to help me anymore. I am on long term still. I am still not able to go out into working world. My house is nearly mom's. I told her recovery is a full time job and she tells me I am not the only one going through it. My family agrees with her. I guess the only way to get through to them is death. But I don't want it to come to that. I almost died from a over dosed last year. They keep thinking it was the job that drove me to it. That is half true. I am just exhausted trying make them understand

They may never understand. Work on YOUR acceptance of their lack of understanding. That is the brutal truth.

For example, I'm a therapist, have a severe history of depression, my father has been institutionalized many times for schizophrenia and my mother still "does not believe in mental illness." She never will.

Even people who "should" know better still say things like "there are so many people in the world who have it worse than you."

No kidding! This is why I feel so guilty and low about not being able to be happy!

Suicide is never the answer.
