So sorry to hear you have so much you are dealing with, AmLitHist. That's a huge amount.

+ 1000.

Take care of yourself, be kind to yourself, even little things (while incapacitated) that reaffirm your value, your abilities, your stability.

M.
Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.

Reprove not a scorner, lest they hate thee: rebuke the wise, and they will love thee.

Give instruction to the wise, and they will be yet wiser: teach the just, and they will increase in learning.

Not looking for advice or solutions (I'm pretty sure there aren't any). I just felt the need to write it down.

Do take good care of yourself, ALH. Vent away, here and on the venting thread.

Sorry to hear about this , ALH.  I've had some experience in dealing with a bipolar loved one, and wouldn't wish it on anybody.

For I was hungry and you fed me, a stranger and you took me in, sick and in prison and you visited me.

Thanks everyone. Today is better (or at least, starting out that way, though I just got a call from her. She's still on a bit of a rant, but not as bad as yesterday, and I kept the call short).

ALH:

Echoing others. Take care of yourself. Yes, dealing with mentally ill family is difficult. Cut yourself slack and do lots of self care.
