Seeking resources for dealing with mentally ill parent
I am looking for any good resources or books for dealing with a parent with severe mental health issues. Thankfully, I am an adult and I am completely independent from them and I plan on scheduling an appointment with a therapist, but any good resources are appreciated. Every time I talk with them they want to fight and I am exhausted; I don't know how anyone has the energy for this while living a healthy life. I don't engage and at this point, I don't want to take their phone calls. I'm very frustrated as it feels like they are trying to control my time and use me as a verbal punching bag. Any good advice for disconnecting or setting healthy boundaries with parents is also much appreciated.
