So happy to hear from you! I’m glad she back in the group dbt skills and taking her meds. It’s so tough. It sounds like a solid plan- having the conversation with her about 3 meals and 3 snacks per day in order to drive the car and have the phone. It’s a safety issue- She can’t drive unless she’s nourished, and it’s a privelege to have the phone. Glad you got out and a had a good time. Weddings are always joyful. As for us, d relapsing (there’s a thread about it.) Have assessment for local ERC for iop or php tomorrow. D is well aware. I have to say, on these very difficult days, I check this forum on and off all day, learning from others, following others’ journeys, I feel like I know you all and want to support (and be supported) in any way I can. Bless you all!

Please tell us about your situation, we need to hear how the story is going on...[wink]
It is so good to see that others have problems too and how you get on and solve them step by step. That gives us all hope so please keep posting.

To start with the car and the phone is a good idea, I think, because that is a big incentive. We use that too and our d is compliant because she doesn´t want to crash the car or hurt someone because she may have a shut down while driving...she said to me "you won´t let grandpa (80) drive when he is not healthy enough to do that, won´t you?" and I agreed with that. So if she wants to drive, she has to eat and be fit. Low blood sugar is very dangerous at driving a car, it has nearly the same effects as alcohol.

Wedding and some drinks sounds great!!! I hope you enjoyed it! We need to do these "normal" things sometimes...

Yay for normal things!!!  Hope your talk last night went well and stick to your guns.  No driving, etc. if she doesn't eat no matter what.

Hi HateED, Sounds like everything is going well. Ups and downs are to be expected. So glad you had a chance to go to a wedding and enjoy yourselves. That's so necessary. Carers need to practice self-care on a regular basis. 

Continued best wishes! XO
