Through the eyes of a carer for someone with a mental illness

Sickness and tears

Leave a comment

One of the hardest things for me at the moment is Chris has started being sick again, this has happened a few times before and is either medicine related, so side effects or is his body not liking the abuse from the amount of overdoses he has taken both presently and in the past. He is due to see our GP again on Monday where again I will be bringing this up because it is rather concerning. At the moment being more hormonal and worrying about things more than normal with all the bad news of late, every time I hear him being sick I just want to cry; in fact it does bring tears to my eyes.

At the moment, with all the news I have had in the past week, going from what feels like a number of people to call upon if things aren’t going so well to feeling like again we have no one. Perfect timing eh? Do I know what the future holds? No but I do know we have what I always hold onto at rubbish times like these and that is each other, as long as we have that we will be ok.
