The family therapy session happened yesterday my sis relayed a quick story that about two plus years ago, I was in the middle of eating lunch, she couldn’t tell if I was agitated or hyper, but i kept getting up and walking around looking at the apartment we were in then. (before this one)
I got up to get some milk and brought her some too. Later in that very meal I guess I stopped pushed away from the table, walked around a bit and then announced that I’m going to need help if I’m going to live out here… (meaning outside my head) That was her sign that I had turned the corner and things would get better for me. To her, that was a sign of insight and the spark of Want.
My parents relayed that about the same time, I went to Mom and Dad’s. Mom was home, Dad wasn’t. I gave my Mom a hug, and asked for help in getting better. So my sis and my Mom said, when I dropped my pride, and admitted I needed help, that was when they both just had a feeling that things were going to get better for me.
I was just wondering… for other caregivers, what’s your sign that things are on the mend?
