  •  My sister was schizo-affective (7+ / 0-)

    Your description of your life with mental illness reminds me of many of the things she told me. She too did not get diagnosed or the help she needed until later in life, she too hated lables. My youngest sister, for reasons she would not explain, spent 31 years estranged from her. My mentally ill sister died without ever having the chance to speak to her.

    We had a close, loving relationship for 10 years following her diagnosis and treatment with meds until her death. I miss her very much.

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead -
