The Dry House

stockvault-dry-rose112524Mental illness can bleed a house dry.

Of kindness.

Of civility.

Of basic human decency.

Fortunately, there are bandages, dressings, ways to stanch the loss. But effort must be made. An attempt to live beyond the blood loss has to be present, has to be active.

Is it so much to ask a loved one to try to help himself?

As much as they may try, a family can not save a man who refuses to acknowledge he’s bleeding.

Until tomorrow…
