  •  Excellent treatment of an important topic (13+ / 0-)

    Having dealt with mental health issues on both sides of the family (Mr. Scribe's brother and my brother's wife), it's criminal (no pun intended) what we do to the mentally ill in this society. Too often a person has to be "sick enough" to get any substantive help -- but I've seen firsthand what can happen when a person gets that help and can become a whole human being.

    Thanks, Puddytat (and thanks to LOrion for the Top Comments nomination -- it just came to me as I was checking the diaries after getting home from my doctor's appointment).

    There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- goddammit, you've got to be kind. -- Kurt Vonnegut
