If one of you have ever felt that you are 'losing it' how would you want others to treat you?
What if it were one of your loved ones who felt as though they were 'slipping'? How would you treat him/her, or how would you want others to treat him/her?
Some of 'us' are living with beloved family members who have mental problems. Hopefully no one is chastizing the ailing one for being the way they are.
Some of 'us' understand what it does to you to see a loved one deteriorate, and to be responsible for the loved one's care.
I am not, and was not, angry at anyone. I am shocked at the anger expressed towards me. I do not understand the fact that a few have taken my post so personally.
I have observed, over the years, that those who have animosity towards someone because of the other person's 'defects' often has a similar condition come upon themselves, or one of their loved ones. This applies to both physical and mental 'defects'.
