Suffering from a mental illness such as Generalized Anxiety, Depression, PTSD is devastating, to the person with the illness, and to the friends and family who love and support the person in their ups and downs. It also affects the children, sometimes without realizing it (while we are « in it »). Yet, as I became aware of my self, of my life, of my surroundings, I also understood quite well what was going on.
“We realized that the version of the world they rendered for us was not the version of the world they really believed in…”
