- What’s Hardest About Being the Parent of a Mentally Ill Young Person?That’s really the wrong question. - January 23, 2019
Quick update. I’m going to be taking a brief break from the blog. The premise of this blog rests upon the idea that I am recovered enough to give good insight. Recently, I tried to hurt myself. Very fortunately, I failed. There’s a long article to be written about that experience and my now hospitalization, as well as my reasoning for doing so and what I saw just before I did it, but it’s not for right now. I can’t give objective insight at the moment, my heart is still heavy. I’ve relapsed, as mentally ill folks routinely do, and will be in ongoing treatment for a while.
It’s important to me that I am as candid as this is. For people going through similar issues right now, there is an “after” that is hopeful and bright. You’ll make it through.
In the meantime, my best friend Katie Suss and I will be collaborating on a few light things here and there, when able. If you want to help write for the blog, shoot me an email. If I don’t respond, I hope you’ll have patience. A lot’s going on.
Thanks for your continued support.
