Sometimes you just have to laugh.
I have worked with thousands of family members and caregivers over the past eight years and the stories of their struggles in supporting a loved one with mental illness are touching and sad. That is why laughter is a big part of my day - every day! I try to count my blessings, be grateful for the special, little things in my life, and celebrate everything good. Life happens. If I am lucky, I will be around for more. So, I choose to laugh rather than be sad, dance rather than sit still, experience rather than shut down. Today is good!
