To those appalled I say this: be abused by an individual for years at a time. By always offering a person with a mental illness a place to live, while they destroy their home and steal from you, you are enabling them not to have to take responsibility of their own lives. Now exactly when support turns into enabling is a tricky thing, but a large part rests on whether the person with the mental illness is getting help or not. I think it’s important to remember that you deserve safety, sanity and happiness in this life.
Some are relieved that someone is finally talking about their reality while others are appalled that I would suggest leaving someone for an illness that is not his fault. No one lives an entire life without the wherewithal to make a different choice. Because just like with addiction, (a mental illness in its own right) you can enable another person’s mental illness.
I’ve written about the fact that sometimes you have to say goodbye to a person with a mental illness for the sake of your own health and sometimes even for the sake of the person with the mental illness. It’s important to remember that just because someone insists on dragging his own life to the bottom of the ocean, doesn’t mean that you have to let them drag you there too.
I believe this even though the person is sick and the sickness is not his (or her) fault. Yes, I said “insists.” That is because when we’re an adult we have to take some responsibility for the choices that we make. And I share with you this sentiment that interventionists have shared with people dealing with drug addicts: Yes, that means you still support that person and love that person but that doesn’t mean that you have to sit around and watch them destroy themselves.
There have been enough illegal drugs to fuel a Columbian cartel and enough alcohol to float an ark.
There have been suicide attempts, hospitalizations and crazy, abusive behavior galore. And I don’t have a relationship with any of these mentally ill people. Not one of them gets help, follows a regimen, admits to the mental illness, or tries to get better. And my brother, the one I grew up with, the one who I remember with white-blond hair, the one that would sleep under the covers and wake with rosy cheeks, the one that had Winnie-the-Pooh fuzzy pajamas with booties, is mentally ill.
She then suddenly vomited 'profusely' and 'slumped over' in her seat.
Fisher was in cardiac arrest with CPR being performed when paramedics arrived in the scene, and there was absolutely no motor or verbal response from the actress, whose eyes remained fully closed.I remember playing video games, I remember playing on the lawn, I remember how he screamed when he broke his arm, I remember how thrilled he was when he got a remote-controlled car for Christmas, and I remember the way he used to twirl his hair around his finger so it was always in knots. And now he is an abusive, destructive force that no one can stand to be around lest they get pulled into convincing delusions and psychoses or have to fear his violent rage. Being in the same room with him is like being hit repeatedly with a hard, blunt abject. She was also taking Abilify, Prozac and Lamictol, which were all prescribed, and oxycodone, which was not.A report from the medical examiner noted that it is unclear what role the drugs may have played in Fisher's death, and that they may have played no role whatsoever in the end.They say they would rather be in jail than be on medication for their mental illness. Sometimes you have to say goodbye to a person with a mental illness. This mental illness reality is unbearably painful as it will shortly result in his having nowhere to live. I’m not mean, uncaring, inflexible, unhelpful or cruel.
