Powerless

There is nothing on this earth worse than listening to your child talk about what's in their head and feeling completely and utterly POWERLESS to help or to change things.

We spent some time with his therapist this afternoon and I learned more than I ever wanted to know. I am making it MY LIFE'S WORK to help this young man carry the burdens that he does.

And how unfair and lonely it must feel to him to have people tell him they believe that what he believes to be true, isn't true. His world is so frightening and uncertain and full of enemies of all forms and I wish, at least I, could be in there with him wielding a sword or holding his hand or something.

This is a cruel, heartless illness.
