i don't know what to do

1nm81nm8 Posts: 4 Newbie
literally joined this site today because i felt so lonely but this past week has been rough. my mum's mental health has basically nosedived to the point where all she's doing is sleeping - i don't know if she's eating or drinking which just worries me even more. i thought today would get better, i managed to get her to take a walk with me but then she just fell back into her hole. i've never felt so low, i don't have friends - i recently moved to a new area so i don't know anyone. i literally don't have anyone and have now resorted to these sites. i just don't know what to do. i'm considering ringing the hospital if she feels the same tomorrow but i'm just stuck. this has really been affecting me, it's almost suffocating.

    I'm sorry I don't have much advice and I feel pretty crap myself atm so this isn't gonna be too long of a reply but I really get it. My mum's mental health bumps have affected me so damn much and it's awful. I'm sorry you're going through this, I know it sucks. Maybe ringing the hospital would be a good idea. Remember you aren't alone, I understand and I'm here if you wanna talk more or anything. Sending hugs <3

    Hello @1nm8
    firstly, I want to say how brave and positive it is you've come here to reach out for help and advice from peers. The situation you've been describing is very overwhelming and i hear you've been feeling stressed and frustrated and it's completely understandable to feel powerless when a loved one is struggling with their mental health, especially when that someone is a caregiver.

    I understand you've been struggling with finding friends and resources in your new area. Is there anything specific you'd like help with?
    In the meantime here is a tool you could use to find the help you need in your area

    No problem @1nm8 - it's good to hear that you're in a better place, and that your mum is on the list to receive some extra support :)
