Daughter with unmedicated schizophrenia

What is so hard is the guilt I feel for not doing enough to help her. Our daughter is so beautiful, inside and out. She is in a dark dark place that I don’t know how to touch. I feel helpless in helping her right now, powerless really.

@razorclams, I know that guilt feeling first hand. I try to turn guilt into action, but it is challenging when so much is beyond your control. Like Teresa said, she is with professionals who are trained to care for people in this situation. Your love and care for her helped her to seek help. Even if she is refusing medication, she is getting help. She is not alone.
You are not alone either. I don't know the right things to say or tools to help you, but I'm here to listen. Reach out to the chat line 1-800-273-TALK (8255). They are trained to help.
