She said it’s my fault she’s all alone and hung up.
You are a good mom teaching her a valuable lesson. If you know where she is you can do a wellness check on her.
If I were you I would report it to the police. Maybe you could call the suicide prevention line. @ninjastar
I have a hard time realizing why anybody without schizophrenia/schizoaffective would want to end their lives. You’ve got the greatest gift of all, you’re not schizophrenic!
I mentioned this to my mother and she rolled her eyes. I guess not a lot of people agree with me.
Hopefully she’s crying wolf but the thing about suicide is it’s never a joke so I guess you gotta talk to her about it. I know nothing of her history. At the end of the day suicide hurts so many people and the least someone could do is just stay alive until they kick from old age. We do it, and we have schizophrenia, so what’s their excuse?
Remember: her version of not being alone is exposing her children to the trauma of seeing their mom behave this way. You have to prioritize the safety of the babies over satisfying her whims, even if she does take drastic measures.
I called 911 and reported it. She said “I am going to kill myself and it’s your fault”. I had to call. I have no idea where she is though, so hopefully they can find her before she does anything.
Even if you were a bad mom sometimes, she’s an adult and she’s responsible for her own life. You can only blame so much on your parents.
She needs to grow up and realize that constantly blaming someone else for your problems is not going to get her anywhere and is non-productive. If she hates her life so bad than she needs to try to change things and make things better on her own.
I think you did the right thing. There have to be some consequences for threatening to kill someone, even if that someone is the person doing the threatening. I mean I try to tell people who are considering suicide, how would you feel if someone you loved committed suicide? Would you be mad at them? Then I ask, how would you feel if someone murdered that same person. Would you be mad at the murderer?
Back in 2008 when I was unmedicated and out of control, mother called the police on me and they put me out of her house. That lead to me getting help, even though it was involuntarily. I was court ordered into psychiatric treatment.
Sounds like she’s trying to manipulate you. Do you know where she is? I had a friend who was a recovering drug addict. She stole from her parents and everything. She hasn’t touched drugs in years as far as I know. Maybe your daughter will wake up and get off the drugs.
no, I don’t know where she is, Yes hopefully she’ll wake up.
I’m thinking it’s probably an attempt at manipulating you. Stick to what you’re doing
Sorry you have to deal with this @Leaf . So sad but hope your daughter gets some help and sorts out her stuff. You did the right thing so hang in there. Hugs.
Why is your daughter doing things like this?
Good thing you called @Leaf.
I also think she’s trying to use you. I used to do the same to my parents, threating them to kill myself if they didn’t give me money to feed my shopping, weed and sex addictions. When it got so bad, I just realized that all this need to stop so I stopped the Abilify and later stopped all my addictions including weed. In my case I had addiction issues psychologically and from Abilify.
What helped me waking up is that my situation got so bad that I got threatened by gangsters, that I emptied my bank account and that I was taking cash advances from my Visa which I couldn’t pay. My parents made a deal with me, I stop all my addictions and they will pay my debts. Your daughter needs to learn it the hard way to get out of it.
While you did the right thing maybe she’s just seeing what you’ll do. Like if you come screaming around town and put yourself in the middle of her business, or if you just call the cops and check in the next morning, both scenarios you care, but ones not about you. Good job.
Oh, i am sorry, dear… You are a good mother, dont think its your fault. I am crossing fingers, that your daughter will feel a bit better soon. It should be hard for her to be alone. I hope she’ll be better.
