while my mother gets worse. My parents have always been there for me and have never been abusive, but now my father and I are constantly arguing over "what should be done" She is in the care of a psychiatrist, but they never seem to follow through with anything. My mom manipulates my father and in turn he refuses to accept help. He calls for advice, but never takes it or if it is remotely threatening to him he yells at me. I understand this is "their" dance, but in the meantime my mother is now refusing to get out of bed and she will not eat.
