Leslie, I am truly moved and honored that my words had an impact on you. I know some people are uncomfortable with how honest I am being about my struggle while living with and loving a person with mental illness. I remind myself that my words are not for them. They are for people who need them, and I am glad they found you. I will share your article with my network as well. I hope you find more relief and extend your compassion more to yourself each day.
