My family makes  me so mad. I can't have one bad day or my family would say 'you're so effing crazy' or 'you belong back into the hospital' or 'you must of forgot to take your medicatioin today' grrrr! I've been in 7 hospitals this year. I understand that I'm not stable but it's so annoying and makes me feel worse about myself. I can't have one bad day.  My case manger wants me to go to an 24 hour group home! sorry just venting

What about going to day treatment? Have you asked your case manager if that is an option? When your family says ignorant statements, as much as it hurts just try to ignore it. It just shows that they don't understand or that they are mean.

Do you not want to go to a 24 hr home? Sometimes we have to remove ourselves from our families to get well. I noticed your avatar is your family Mormon as well? Could that be part of their problem with your depression?

Families can be so dense about mental illnesses and they say exactly the wrong thing.

I'm sorry that you had to suffer so much that 7 hospitalizations were needed.

I'm not sure what a group home is.  Would you have to sleep there.  We have partial hospitals where you spend 7 or 8 hours there and then go home

Please don't let your ignorant family upset you any more.  They don't know what they are talking about.

Yes you can have a bad day. Turn it around on them if they are having a bad day and see how they like it. I did that to my mom not to long ago.

I would see if they have a day program you can go through. I have done that many times. I am sorry about your family.
