Help Me Help My Daughter....Hi Everyone,
%u200B My name is Liliana and i have a beautiful daughter named Amanda who is 26. 4 Years ago My daughter suffered a Brain Aneurysm on her left side of her brian the size of a banana above her ear from top to bottom. From being a normal 21 year old working, driving having a boyfriend all was normal... Untill one day while she got on the parkway (hightway) as per her own words she dosent remember driving anywhere or how she got to her boyfriends house which was about 30 min away.. I still cant believe how she did that but ..Dr.s informed us that it was by memeory that got her their even while her brain was drowning in blood... Amazing!! how she didnt get into an accident. When she got to his house she tryied to put the key in the keyhole and couldnt. So his sister opened the door and Amanda was in a gaze, eyes glossy and slured speach. Her boyfriend called me and said something is wrong with Amanda.. he explained and i said take her to the er.. Within 2 hours we were told that she had a stroke and they needed to do an emergency surgery they also told us that it was a posibility that she may not survive due to how bad it was... As you can imagine my life fell apart at that moment and i lost my mind...As the family started to show up, i had to keep everyone together... from grandparents,uncles, her brother (my son) lost it... It was the worst moment in my life... I never prayed so hard in my life, and i still do. After 5 hours of surgury she had made it thur.. a real trooper but I knew she would. A fighter like her mother, thou she lost some speach and memory we were thankful that she was able to walk and move and speak and with help of therapy we are so thankful to all them peopel who helped her all the way thru.....So thankful to God... Now 4 years later Amanda has had so much change, she is not the sweet young woman that she once was. Now, She is bitter, angry, mean, disrespectful, has no friends, argues with everyone, defensive, very mean toward family memebers... says hurtful things and esp to me... If i tell you I have cried and cried and cried of seeing this change in her. It brakes my heart!!!!!!!!!!! I cant reach her, I cant talk to her because it leads into an argument... i try not to argue because i know its not her... But she dose not seem to think anything is wrong with her. I dont know how to make her see that its her and she needs help.. Her father and i are divorced but we do get along and he is on the same page with me.... I cant see my baby girl go thru life angry and without no friends...nor family. Please if anyone has gone thru this. HOW DO I CONVINCE HER TO SEE THAT SHE NEEDS HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How can her father and I help her since she is over age!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need to do something, She has her entire life ahead of her and i want her happy and at peace with herself and her family who adores her... Please if anyone can relate here reach out to me i need help to help my baby girl....My heart aches...and i dont know how to help her.
I thank you and God Bless you all..
