On Sunday my parents brought me and my stuff back to my uni accommodation. Whilst at my accommodation, mother threw a tantrum after she was found destroying a prescription I have, as she thinks the drugs I'm getting do me more harm than good [The prescription it replaces was far better, so she wanted the new one to be invalidated and changed back to the older one]. As she lied that it ripped apart without her intervening my father pointed out that wasn't the case [it was obvious, but nice that he said it. She sometimes schemes, has plans she doesn't reveal that make little sense to us]. She began to yell and then stormed out of my room, getting a train home as dad and I put my stuff where it should be, then had a meal with each other as a goodbye.
She texted me yesterday morning advising me to get my prescription changed back to how it was. Her motives are obvious.
I spoke to her the day after she ripped my prescription up, making sure that her actions would be mentioned. She said without me prompting that she'd see a doctor about her blood pressure and anger issues. Although she said she would, she's been coming up with crappy excuses for not doing so. It's clear to me and my father that she won't get an appointment.
She is an old lady, in her 60s and has been becoming more and more forgetful, I worry that she'll have umpteen problems when old age hits her hard. Just an overview on her mental state: Easily angered, Forgetful, Schemer.
I'm between 80 and 90 miles from my parents, getting her to see a doctor is hard. The only way I can think of getting her to see a doc is to not get my prescription changed to what she thinks I should be taking, or just not take the current drugs I need. Emotional blackmail would work, however there should be another way. I'd hate to use emotional blackmail, but I'd be unable to live with myself knowing something awful happens to her because she never got the help she needs.
This prescription is to keep my bones from thinning, becoming weaker and eventually making me immobile, however just by exercising I do more than any drugs can do. It really wouldn't matter if I stopped taking the drugs for a while, infact I haven't used any for 4 months.
If you want any info that'd help you eventually help me, do ask. Thanks for reading.
