These last three months have been some of the hardest in my life since my sophomore year in college when my father nearly died in a car accident. I feel like I've been through hell and back.
But.....I am stronger for it.....
With the love of my life supporting me (can't believe we've been married a year now)
With our dogs to keep me busy as always
With my family's help
With a new diet to undo the damage of the last three months (got in trouble with my cholesterol)
With a new job far away from the cause of all of this
All I can say is that I am not meant for a life of permanent upheaval. I also think all those websites that claim to have tips for family members of people struggling with mental illnesses do not fully grasp just how bad it can be. It is not a world of sunshine and rainbows. It is a very lonely and scary place. A place that I will no longer be trapped in.
