Sorry, no semi-clever title tonight. Buckle in, this is going to be a rant-fest.
My mother drives me mad.
As I mentioned in my previous post, my mom has severe bipolar disorder. She's on medication that should be helping her stay in control, but I think she's stopped taking it lately or something because she's acting bonkers. One minute, she's running around downstairs peering out windows and messing with the blinds, the next she's locked herself in her room with the lights out.
Mom, you're not a five-year-old.
I went in her room earlier today to check on her, and she had buried herself under the covers. It was 3:00 in the afternoon, for God's sake. The blinds were shut and the curtain was drawn, so her room looked like a bloody cave. I reached over to open the blinds a bit, and she completely flipped out. Yelled at me to stop touching things and leave her in peace.
That...didn't make me feel very good.
So I'm just avoiding her now. Hopefully she'll start taking her meds again soon, but if she keeps freaking out, I think Dad'll have to take her to the doctor.
God, I'd love to have a normal mom sometimes.
Anyway, sorry for all the ranting, people.
