Behind the scenes I have a J preservation team who have helped me get to this day.
I have the kid sis: day and day handling, delusion busting and crisis/emergency management.
The quick acting parents: back up and help in the decision making, also on the crisis team.
The various Uncles and cousins: drop by for a quick check and prevent isolation
The pdoc: meds and check-ups
The Therapist’s: coping tools and a place to scream it out.
The returning friends: help keep me surfing, swimming and grounded.
The very cool boss: has given me a flex schedule so I can work and has been encouraging
I don’t know how many of us do this alone. But if you manage alone… WOW. Because I couldn’t. I was wondering who does do this alone and who has some help? Any help, doesn’t have to be family.
If you do make it through you’re weeks and years alone… how do you do it?
