Question Who cares? - June 18th 2011, 05:50 PM

I am currently registerd as a YC (young carer) for my mum. I don't know exactly what is wrong with here wich as you can (hopefully) imagine make's caring for her even harder.
I keep asking her and people who help (well dont, but try to) at school but thay all won't tell me.
All I do know is that she has some kind of mental illness.
I was hoping that someoen here may be able to give me an idea of what she has, if I were to say what sort's of things she does?

We may be able to give you some ideas of what she may have based on her symptoms, though obviously we cannot give you a definate diagnosis as we are not medical professionals. It seems wrong that no-one will tell you what it is that you are dealing with since you are the one who is caring for your mum, maybe it is because of your age? I'm not sure how the system works when you are a young carer, but I know with mental illness, no-one is allowed to divulge information about you without your consent. The only thing I can suggest is to explain all of this to your mum calmly and tell her how you believe it would enable you to give her the care she needs if you know more about her condition.
I spent a long time caring for my little brother and my mum when she was ill, so I can sort of relate to how difficult it can be. Keep your chin up x
