Sorry if my story is too long to read but it is indeed serious and hopefully someone could give some good suggestion. Thank you.
My problem is my mother had a depression issue when she was young. She couldn't accept people gossiping about her or scold her. She could keep in her heart and will not let it go. She could not handle pressure too well because she could get depression. Perhaps she is too sensitive and I understand her so I will not give her any pressure.
I really need to know what kind of illness is my mother having. When I was small, I heard her talking to herself and answer herself back. When I confront her on this, she say she never did that. Then when my mum go for work, she couldn't stand boss scold her or people gossiping her. She will then singing and talk to herself in the working place. People started to call her crazy, therefore, my dad disallow her from working any more to avoid this situation happen again. There is once, she was unhappy with the noise outside from the court that running an aerobic class, she took a knife out and ask them to lower the music volume. I was terrified but glad nothing serious happen. Then I realize my mum could probably hallucinate something that not true because whenever she see a group of people talking, she thought they were gossiping her and that make her sad and couldn't sleep for nights. We did bring her go see doctor, but she hate us for doing so.
I know she couldn't handle any pressure but how could we prevent the pressure from outside society? There is also another problem in my family. My brother since he was small, he couldn't speak because the doctor said his mind will remain as a kid and slow in adopting to new things. Till now he did not know the value of money and what the purpose of it. All he know is play games. Sometimes he could get angry as he could hardly understand anything and he could show his temper to us. I could understand that he is not able to understand and therefore I did not really care if he throw his temper as everything will be back to normal the next day. But my mum couldn't accept it and constantly crying saying her son scolded her. It does make me difficult position, because I did explain to my brother do not release anger at our mother but he couldn't get it no matter what I said. When I explain to my mother he could not understand anything that is why he is like that, it is a pity of him and we should be considerate on him yet my mum still will constantly get depressed when my brother shows his temper. I'm lost and do not know what to do. It does make me headache. What could make my mum feel better? And what could make my brother understand? And what could make my dad understand that he must not raise his voice over my mother since she had an issue. I know my dad could be tension to have this kind of problem but don't he realize raising voice could make matter worst. I lost and hoping someone could give me a guide on what to do.
