Day 31

Enough

So suddenly my dad was the bad one. Im not saying he was perfect but at this point he was trying his best. . She stormed off to the next door neighbour to phone the police.

I was witness to all this of course in the kitchen. I was literally just in the door from school. I broke down. "I cant take this anymore" i sobbed. She needed help, we all did.

The police came. They spoke to my mum then came in to see us. I cant remember the conversation. However they spoke to her and convinced her to book into a mental hospital on a voluntary basis.

The next thing i remember was the ambulance arriving for her.

I remember one time we went to visit her. She seemed so normal especially compared to everyone else.

It was a scary experience for me. I dont know if my brother and sisters would even remember much of it.

    Remember the relief when my mum would be sectioned - felt guilty but the madness at home is sometimes too much to bear. Living through this kind of stuff gives you insight into another world.

    I don't remember too much of the period while she was in there juggler but yes it was such a relief. it gave us a well needed break. You don't realise how stressful it is until you come to a flashpoint. You just go through the motions until then x

    I think there is a sense of relief that you don't have to try to cope any more, try to pretend that everything is OK and the relief that someone else is taking over. xx

    Oh your so right WD. It must've been a huge relief for my dad especially. Trying to cope with 4 kids and my mum with very little support. X
