Everyone is different of course but I think my parents at least don't want me to be depressed as they don't want their friends etc to find out. They think my mental illness makes them look like bad parents.
I lent my mother Marcus Trescothick's autobiography once to try and get her to understand. My mother has met Marcus many times over the years at cricket games etc. and I thought it might give her a little bit more insight. Her reply was "No wonder you act crazy if you read books like that"
A few years ago I was discussing this topic with my brother. I have always been one to argue with my parents, at least to try to get them to see my point of view. He tends to let things slide and steps back. He said that he realised a while ago that you cannot change our parents, not even in the slightest. The thing he does is just nod, smile and ignore what ever really bad thing they just said. Its not a great idea in my book but at least you get an easier life.
