Is helping an ailing parent always tough? Shouldnt we be dismantling the walls we've built against each other and practice love & forgiveness?

Is helping an ailing parent always tough? Shouldnt we be dismantling the walls we've built against each other and practice love & forgiveness?

Not always: As it depends on the relationship. Ailing parents can have a lot of old "baggage" and may not have the skills to practice love and forgiveness...They may have guilt over old perceptions and events. We all tend to form ideas and misperceptions that we hold on to because they hurt...If you practice love and forgiveness you will break down the walls.

What's the best way to break up with an alcoholic? he's never been physically abusive but he is emotionally abusive passive aggressive and manipulativ

Get support: via family, friends, mental health professional, a self-help group etc. You will be tempted to slip back depending on the relationship and person you're leaving. You need to be strong and know you deserve better. If you're worried about your personal safety, talk with a counselor who specializes in domestic abuse. I hope this helps. Best wishes. ...Read more

Client falling in love with therapist?

Client falling in love with therapist?

Not uncommon: After all, it's nice to have a caring thoughtful person listen to your every word. But clients usually don't know very much about their therapists personally, and so are "in love" in their imagination mainly. Also, therapists are trained & duty-bound not to reciprocate — to maintain professional boundaries. Best to discuss your feelings with your therapist, & use it to learn about yourself. ...Read more

Interesting...: I can imagine that it might be comforting to be massaged in the last hours, but I can't see how it could possibly prolong life in any significant way. Improved circulation or not. ...Read more

Health issues,chronic stress 7+yrs (financial/family/legal - abusive ex) ongoing.V resilient in past,suddenly overwhelmed. Prx propranolol. What now?

Mental health: Sounds like you are having a difficult time. Propranolol is used for anxiety, especially for stage fright, but it sounds like you may need to consider counseling and discussing with your doctor a different type of medication like an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor). You are not a "weak" person for asking for help or for using a medication to help you through this. ...Read more

2 month old son cries non stop unless he's being held & people tell me i'm neglecting him for letting him sit & cry sometimes. Help?

? medical problem?: Have you talked to his pediatrician about this? If he likes to be held, it may that he likes to be upright and is battling something like ge reflux. This makes infants cry. Can also be from formula intolerance, exposure to second hand smoke, and others. It's ok to let baby cry for short periods, ie: finish your shower and get dressed, but prolonged ignoring of his crying not good for either of you. ...Read more

Can someone with schizoid pd seem outgoing and socially engaged, despite a lack of sincere emotional interaction?  Do they bond with family members?

Schizoid PD: People with schizoid pd consistently lack desire for intimate human connection. They may have families and jobs, but keep people at a distance. They mostly appear cold and dull in affect. They would be unlikely to seem outgoing or socially engaged, but are able to respond to carefully selected others whom they need intensely. Some of these could be family. ...Read more
