I would like to help caregivers and loved ones understand the pain that goes on inside the son/daughter girlfriend/boyfriend etcetera’s mind.
While you may only be seeing irrational behavior and stuff like that you must understand the great deal of emotional pain behind this behavior. The pain that is not visible or understandable inside the person’s mind. I’ve been diagnosed so I know what I’m talking about. So hear me out at least.
This pain is not understood by caregivers because it’s simply not in your “emotional vocabulary” so to speak. To the average person having a shattered mind is quite literally, pain unimaginable. To put it in perspective, I’d rather die of crucifixion and then go straight to hell for eternity than live a long life with this mental disorder.
It is my hope that this brings understanding to the eyes of caregivers.
