Whado you do when youre psychotic and you have to take care of kids?

Recommended Posts

I have two at home. Iv'e been around them alone when psychotic before, and I wasn't able to tak e care of myself, let alone them. I had to call my mom to come and take care of them. I'm not so worried now, because my daughter is thirteen and can stay home with the other one if I need to leave the house or go to the hospital. But It's hard taking care of kids when you are psychotic. I probably wouldn't have had kids if I'd known I was going to be mentally ill to the point of not being able to tak e care o f them.

All I can tell you is do the best you can. It's always difficult trying to be a parent while your juggling your own mental illness at the same time. My best advice is to maybe see your pdoc and see if they can get you on some better medication that would lessen the psychotic episodes. Good luck!
