I was reading a link provided on a friend’s feed on Facebook. It was about a young man with mental and physical disabilities. It broke my heart and yet I’m relieved that the police officers stepped and are going to help him find somewhere to live and be safe.
How many of you have had your family turn their back on you?
How many have had to deal with your own mental illness on your own?
Have friends stood by to help you?
I realize that some families don’t know what respite care is or that there are options to getting support; but for me, that doesn’t make it right to turn your back on your child; no matter how old they are.
