As a child or adolescent you might have
a lot of questions when you notice that your parents do not feel well or are
sick. When the problem is e.g. about depression or a family member is drinking
too much alcohol, this often becomes a secret in the family that nobody talks
Your worries about what is going on with your parents (sometimes this may be a mental illness of your mother or father) can cause questions and probably frighten you. If you are a child and are also depending on the care of your mom or dad things can be even more confusing. You then may have a number of questions, such as "Why is my mom or dad this way?", "Is my mom or dad actually ill?", "Will I become this way?"; and "Who will take care of me if my mom or dad is sick?"
Don't give up asking!

I am Aleksandra.
I am a doctor and I work with adults who suffer from mental illness.
I also work with their children.
Maybe you noticed at home that something might be the matter with your parents or that they behave in a strange way. You might not ask them, what is going on, or nobody gives you an answer.
Then please, write me your question.
I am here to answer your question personally and confidentially.
