Short story: SD16 has been in and out of residential mental facilities for nine months. Prior to that, she had extensive home-based therapies for her issues that she only superficially participated in. She has lived with us for five years - prior to that, she lived with bipolar schizoaffective BM and abusive SF. She spent weekends with alcoholic GPs. She has just been diagnosed bipolar II. SD16 places all the blame for everything in her life on me. BM is dead. Despite a complete lack of progress with family therapy, she will likely be released within 60 days. She will be in my care 24/7 as DH has an amazing job opportunity with huge long term benefits that cannot be taken at any other time. Everything will be on me.
Please help me find a reason why I should do this...my children have been hurt (DS16, DD14, DS2, and DD8 months), I have been hurt, and our life is a chaotic nightmare with SD. I love my husband so much and this is the ONLY reason I can find to pit us all through this again. I am so deep in sadness and anger - please help me find a reason to do this.
