Vacation

Next week my family and I are going on a vacation with my mum and my sister's family. It had been more than ten years since we had a chance to go on vacation with my mum. She had a stroke more than ten years ago. In fact due to her speedy recovery, we did go on vacation together a few years after her stroke.

A couple of years after that she had depression and non of us realize that until she committed suicide. She took all her pills at one go and slept in her room. Luckily my sister found out before it was too late. After that incident it was going downhill all the way for all of us.

We went from psychiatrist to psychiatrist. That few years she refuse to meet anyone except us family members. She won't even step foot into a saloon to have her hair cut. She would rather get her maid to cut for her.

Thank goodness lately she is pretty much her self again. We would chat over the phone every now and then. She would even make friends with the neighbors. In fact when I suggested that we go on a vacation with her she felt excited and can't wait to pack her clothes and go.

Glad she is back to normal. Can't wait for next week. Normally our annual vacation are with my in-laws of just the four of us. My sister had not gone for a break in a long time too. Glad she could make it this time.

Thanks for reading. Hope you will have a great vacation soon too.

Hi Aries, glad your mom is OK... i can totally relate to you. My mom went into depression and tried to commit suicide too. Nobody noticed it because she appeared normal, busy running her business and socializing. It was a big surprise for all of us. We took her to a psyciatrist but he gave her only sedatives. She got better after we took her to a psychologist.
After that moment, we try our best to spend more time with her, either talking on the phone or just be with her. She looks OK now but we all know that a small problem can easily chip her soul.
My prayer for your mother... may God give her strengths and bless her with peace and health.
Have a great vacation...!!
