Why is she doing this to me?

“Her behavior is different! She can get easily agitated, cries or just ignores me. I have never seen anything like this before.”

When mental illness is in its early stages, its subtle signs are often missed or misinterpreted as bad behavior or personal weakness. Parents and schools do not teach about mental health and wellness. It is often wrongly believed that  successful people are immune from brain related conditions. Because health promotion for the brain is not emphasized, people do not know what to do when their loved one is faced with a mental illness. Every day, someone enters a health provider’s office with questions about a sudden emotional change in their loved one.

The stress from both the stigma of dealing with mental illness and the burden of caregiving responsibilities is often overlooked. What can you do aside from nagging her about her behavior, So racing thoughts like the following keep you up at night?

How do we get her back to normal?

“I really don’t know how to help her. If this problem were a physical condition like a fracture, helping would be so easy.’’

What can I do to help these sudden emotional changes in attitude and behavior?

“She is not sleeping at night, not eating and not going to work. I have tried everything, from taking her out to restaurants, to going on shopping sprees, and even staying up all night talking about solutions for her situation. Nothing seems to work! If she could just snap out of this!”
