c'mon you'll love it

I've been reading this women since i started blogging. she is in my blog roll. funny as hell and a great mom. epic posts about how she deals with her life and kids and work and husband. recently she hit a bottom of sorts it seems. she hasn't said much about what happened, but is writing about her recovery and the time she was institutionalized. i think it started early two weeks ago. and she has only posted three times since... but if you start here and the read up the page in order of her posts its amazing. makes me want to get all emotional and shit. i imagine that's what it was like the first time my mother was institutionalized... i dunno. i pimp other peoples blogs without them even knowing it. she has a massive reader following and like i said, her posts have power.

Thank you. I'm in tears. I have such a lump in my throat. Thank you sweetie. I think you are brilliant just when I think you aren't. I'm reading desperately, but wanted to come here and tell you how very much I love you. What an amazing post. Thank you.

I also want to say I'm in agony. I try to read what she writes and my heart just breaks. Yes, tears are streaming down my face. Why? Because life is often such a struggle and people take it so lightly. I don't suffer from mental illness, but reading her words brings it straight to my heart. I know you're a good man. No matter what you say or do, I know who you are. You can fool everyone else, but you will never fool me.

WOW! Inner Voices that was really from a deep dark place. Unfortantly, I see this almost daily at my hospital. Mental health issues are hard to witness.
Great writing though. I wander if she has done some writing?
Thanks doll

Yes Suze! Inner Voices is a good man with a good heart! Tough exterior but inside a big bowl of mush!
Love ya!

You know, I tried to read her blog posts but had a hard time...I guess it brought some stuff up for me too. But even if you don't have a personal experience with mental illness (though I think most people do at least relationally), everyone can relate to those deepest fears--of feeling lost, alone, out-of-control. Very primal really. That is some rough stuff.
