Ahmad you see to be very interested in your sister's mental health. I am glas she has someone like you in her life. That being said I would not worry as much as you do about her diagnosis. For one it is her personal journey and it is for her to deal with. You do not need to worry about her medication or try to diagnose or fix her. Self-talk is somet...

You are ok and I would not feel strange about this. There is also something called second-hand depression, and other phenomenon that can come up after trying to see through the eyes of a person who has a mental illness. Thanks for your post because this is actually a common experience.

Good Luck with the dr. I know this is a stressful time and I am sorry for you. I am glad that you are facing this together. I hope she understands that failure is not a bad thing. If we never fail than we never learn to succeed. Sometimes courage is not a roar.... sometimes it is a silent whisper before you go to sleep that says "I will try again to...
