A Quiet Morning in Bed...

Carolyn came over this morning and just held me.

“I hate it when you are not feeling well. I feel so helpless and there seems there is nothing I can do,” She told me.

“Just be here for me,” I replied. “I just need a friend.”

We lay in my bed just listening to each other breath for the longest time.

“I get my injection in the morning,” I told her. “I think my medicine has run out. Mom is taking me. I don’t think I can drive right now.”

“Call me when you get home. I will be at work,” She said. “I just want to know you are okay.”

“I will,” I replied.

One of the hardest aspects of mental illness is not what YOU go through, but what it puts those you love through.

I hurt for you. I know how you feel about affecting those around you. Whenever I get into a funk I really worry about my kids and how they will react. On the other hand, I guess it is good that we can worry about our loved ones so that we have a reason to keep trying to get better.

Hope the fog lifts soon.
