Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
First allow me to inform you that I am not a doctor, I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor. That being said It sounds like you have a significant amount of knowledge in the field of mental illness. It also appears that you are a firm friend who has taken her symptoms in stride and not allowed them to effect you personally, Here I think you are right on target, but it is necessary to inform her when she does something inappropriate albeit in a non-judgemental manner. It is admirable that she has not continued the cycle of abuse with her children and you should reinforce such appropriate behaviors when you see them. You can also suggest that possibly she return to therapy or group thertapy if she is having a difficult time of it. I believe you should continue as you have been doing as your actions are those of a good, caring friend with insight into emotional problems. I do not believe there is much more you can do to assist her than what you have already done. Just continue to act the same and be there for her.
