  •  Giving a shit (7+ / 0-)

    Rena, you've hit on the key point.  People here give a shit, and they do something about it, sometimes at personal risk.  Mental health issues require a special understanding and if you can find someone who is able to help in that nonjudgemental, compassionate way, you are indeed a fortunate person.  It's got to be one of the most terrible things to deal with.  I can't imagine what it was like years ago, when society didn't allow dealing with it in the open.

    I've been simply amazed by the things I've seen and experienced here in this community.  The good has outweighed the bad by light years.  

    Recently I've had a hard time explaining about how much a dkos community member's health issues have affected me.  It's difficult for people who aren't involved here to understand the community, and to understand how well you can know and care about someone you've never met.

    Best of luck to you, your friend and her family.  They are lucky to have you.
