My mom started having back pain in Sept. She does not like doctors and didn't go to one until a couple weeks ago (last time she went to a dr was 37 yrs ago when she had me). She was diagnosed with osteoporosis, but she says she doesn't have it and she won't take her meds. She is severely depressed and says she doesn't want to live. To make matters worse, she treats my father horribly to the point he calls me crying. She is so depressed about having pain and getting older. I found a social worker for my Dad to visit, but he is afraid to go because mom might find out and get even more unreasonable. I live far away from them, otherwise I would just take my dad to the social worker. I said I'd come out to take him, but he said that would make things worse, that mom will get mad at him if I come out. She's not eating, not cooking or cleaning (which is very normal for her).....They don't have many friends in the town they live in (they recently moved) and they don't go to church. Mom stalks my Dad when he's on the phone, she's paranoid he's talking to others about her, so when I want to talk to him about seeing the social worker, etc it's really hard. I don't know what else to do, I'm at a loss.
