I don’t normally make personal posts but I’m making this exception. My mother suffers from mental illness. It’s something that has hindered our relationship my entire life. She would take off and disappear for years at a time. I grew up being used to my mother being gone. Since I’ve become an adult she has tried in her own way to have a relationship with me. I’ve tried with her as well. Recently we’ve gotten closer. Partially because I know she has nobody else in the world. No family. Maybe 2 friends. Anyway, 4 days ago my mother took a whole bottle of pills. Long story short, she’s been in a coma and on a breathing tube. I have had to be the one making all her medical decisions for her. I never realized how much I do love her until this happened. I just received a call that they removed to tube and she is starting to try to wake. If anyone reads this please take the chance to tell your mom you love her if you can. You never know what’s going to happen.
