Four and a half years ago mum decided she wanted to live near me. She refused to go into a care home and opted instead for a sheltered flat. I didn't really have a say in it, she just assumed I would step up because that's what the daughter did. She was too frightened of falling to leave the buildin...
O good grief, Jackie, you must be beside yourself. It may be no consolation but....it is May and sleeping rough will not be the hardship it might be in January.

Actually, Jenny, I think you have the right end of the stick and I'm wrong. DBT (dialectical behavoiur therpay) is used for Borderline.

Apologies to Gemma, and perhaps she could enlighten us?
Hi Gemma My son, diagnosed with schizophrenia, has ups and downs all the time. When he is 'getting bad' he tends to be very sensitive to perceived criticism and frequently flies into a rage. I say 'perceived' because often what someone says is not intended as criticism at all. He also gets into trou...
Sarah, I've sent you a PM.
Really sorry Henrietta. You have helped so many people on the forum; I hope you are finding some comfort too. (((Hugs))) from me.
