Hi Jane1!


My mum has bipolar, schizophrenia and a few other things I forget. She's been like that since before I was born.


For me, it was only in my teens that I knew something was different about Mum and in my 20's that I figured out I'd been caring and looking after her (and my little brother) since about age 5.


I'm now 30 and we dn't currently have contact (her choice). It's been a tough journey and I don't expect its over just yet.


Hope you find some solace in the support of others with similar experiences.
