Those of us who have an SMI (serious mental illness), and who have at least one person in our lives upon whom we can count to stand by us, are blessed beyond measure.

Clinical depression, obsessions and compulsions suicidality, toxic shame, severely distorted thinking, psychoses, mania, emotional pain, hallucinations, and more can torture us, rob of us our dignity and ability to function, and drive us to our knees, ready to give up.

To all those who love and support a person with a severe mental illness, as difficult as it can be at times, thank you. You are good human beings.
