Today I was on the treadmill at the gym when I saw a spot on the view featuring Glenn Close and her sister Jesse. Her sister has Bipolar disorder. They are starting a website which brings mental illness in families "out" so to speak. One in 6 adults has a mental illness so chances are someone in every family is included. Well the commercial they showed made me cry and I had to run to the restroom and hide in the shower until I quit. Why do some things touch that sore spot so quickly and sharply when months can go by with out the pain surfacing in such a raw way? I don't know. It felt good in a weird way. I know people want me to be over my sister's death and they probably think that I am but I'm not. I can hold it together pretty well and even talk about her without crying but not a day goes by when I don't ask the what if questions. I will never have those answers.
Anyway, here is the spot and I think its going to be a great thing if it catches on -
