My Mom Has Been Sick Almost My Whole Life

My mom was diagnosed when I was 17.she was molested as a child by her dad and brothers and supressed a lot of things.her 1st episode she had walked off.she would always go for walks and take 30 mins one day it had been a hour so I went looking for her.found her fannypack walkman keys and rings in the field no mom.I went home told my dad wrote down what she had on so I would remember.he waited 2 more hours I was panicing.finally he gets in the truck to go look for her.I sat at home waited she called 4 hrs later 7 miles away at a truckstop!!!she was incoherent and didn't know her mom is now on 8 meds.what ****** me off is when they get sick they don't realize it the family mom has had 6 episodes in the last year and it is extremly bad because I live with my parents I can't leave my 4 year old alone with her.stress brings sickness on and traumactic events make my mom time when I was at work I had to leave because neighbors saw her freaking time she left my aunts car at a redlight ran up a freeway my aunt got scared called me.I called 911 said she was manic needed help I didn't even know what marker!!I was scared my mom would get hit by a car.when they picked her up she had a huge cut on her ankle.this illness is hard on thhe person with it...and the ones who love them.

Wow. That's very tough. Sorry. Hopefully the meds will keep her under control. That sounds just awful.
