My heart aches – I have loved two people with serious mental health disease. I am a caregiver, I want to be a contributing part of my loved ones’ health journeys. Heck, I became a nurse because I find fulfillment in being an intimate part of people’s health journey. I felt gnawing inadequacy living with my loved ones with serious depression. It killed me that they didn’t appreciate themselves as much as I valued them. We couldn’t figure out how to let me in to be part of their team. They were so alone, I got so angry. I honor this day to honor them. Lillie and Peggy, you made life rich. Thanks.
