Mental Health Problems

My mother’s mental health problems (I think it likely that most of her illness was anxiety and panic disorder- though I cannot be certain as I am not a psychiatrist) was treated discreetly by her G.P. who prescribed her with amitriptyline and another G.P.  prescribed her with Ativan/Lorazepam to replace amitriptyline later on.  I was diagnosed with bipolar at the age of 30.  Straightaway my mental health treatment lead to people outside the family home knowing about it.

Mother may have been protected from any consequences of having an official diagnosis however it may be that she had to suffer more because she was afraid to get help from more official sources such as counselling or psychiatric help.
