I am hoping someone out there might have some experience/advice with their parent having borderline personality disorder or a similar mental disease while you were/are pregnant.
My mother has undiagnosed BPD (but trust me, she's textbook) and she is threatening suicide. She says things like "I am going to take all the pills in the house and just be gone!" and "I hope God takes me away soon, I don't want to live anymore." She has been doing this for years, but has never attempted suicide. Yet, she is threatening more often now and I am afraid she may do it one day. Aside from that, she is constantly mad at me or one of my siblings for completely made up reasons (stemming from the paranoia part of the disorder). My family has tried for years to convince her to get help but she refuses.
This is so upsetting because I am 35 weeks pregnant...you would think she would have a sliver of excitement for the baby. I am now worried that once I have the baby, she will want to babysit and I am not comfortable having her watch the baby when she is unstable like this.
Any advice on how to deal with this now and after the baby is born would be greatly appreciated.
