Thank you for posting the link.

Reading that story brought tears to my eyes and made me realise that my own mental illness sometimes makes me too self absorbed and I must make more time for my loving partner who has been there for me through good and bad times and accepts me for who I am. A good way to start 2013.

Wonderful, beautiful story about love, mental health and the state of health care & support: How I Fell in Love with a Schizophrenic

Really moving. Hope you like it as much as I do.

"I hope, when Sally comes out of the hospital in a week or two, she'll be a lot like the old Sally I met that fateful July day in 2011. And I hope we can laugh about aliens, and go back to fixing up the house, and maybe even shoot a round of pool or two now and then. We'll keep trying to find an antidepressant that works, and a work-at-home job that Sally can do to make extra money, so she can feel more independent. Fate willing, we'll build a life together."
