Spanky3 Posted June 6, 2004 Share Posted June 6, 2004 I'm not quite sure how to phrase this correctly, but here goes . . . How do you get your family member with lc to help themselves? My SIL is going through with tx but has basically given up. Refuses to go to any counseling but is so incredibly depressed - won't go to work (hasn't in months), barely leaves the house, has absolutely no enjoyment in life whatsoever. She is completely negative about everything and sees only the negative in everything. At this point she is barely talking to her docs, not pushing for test results, doesn't tell them when she's hurts, etc. If we try to be positive she snaps. We don't know how to help her anymore and as I said, she refuses counseling. She has depression medication which I believe she is over using. I just want her to begin to fight and she just refuses. It is so hard to watch and even harder to listen to. Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
