  • I dont know what to do

    I am 17. My mom has been suffering from mental ilness such as bipolar disorder and depression for years. She used medications before. That period of time created anxiety and depression for me that I had to deal for 3 years. She stopped taking her medicine for few years but now she is as worse as before. She is highly paranoid, doesn't sleep at night and mostly delusional. All of her kids and my dad have been trying to help her and still do. But I don't know what to anymore. I am under severe stress and cant focus on my college preparation. I love her but I cant help her. She is trying to make us move with her parents (countryside) but I need to stay at home to prepare for college entrance exams. She doesn't agree to go for a psychiatrist or take medicine. I can't do anything but think I don't deserve this but then I feel sick for thinking I am so selfish.
