Getting a birthday card message like this from my sz son today, makes my spirit soar…and helps a whole lot to mellow and fade all of the past bad memories and dischord we have survived.
If I could convey one important message to all of my fellow sz caretakers it would be that when your loved one screams at you that they hate you and wish you were gone or dead, ask yourself one critical question: “Is my loved one stable right now?” If the answer is “no” please disregard what they have said and continue helping them as much as you can.
If you are their caretaker you are without a doubt the most important and most beloved person they know even if they can’t express that…yet.
Today is a happy day for me.
I wish all of you --happy days to come.
(ps: the front of the card was a picture of an otter so the otter reference)
