Tired.

This afternoon, my brother was once again hospitalized for his schizophrenia.  After another rough road, ending in another bad afternoon...
I'm tired of writing about this.
I'm tired of talking about this.
I'm tired of this being his reality.
I'm so so tired of all of it.

Last year, I created this video in dedication to his ongoing struggle.  To try and honor just a small idea of what he continues to live with.  I'm just so tired for him... for my parents... for myself. 



Thinking of you, Joel.
Wishing you were not alone, scared and hurting.
Wishing you could be released from your nightmare.

I've heard this song 100 times and apparently never listened to the words. That really hit home for me with what he goes through on a daily basis. Hope things turn around quickly.

I have heard that song many times. I could sing the whole song and I guess I never really paid any attention to the meaning in the words. My thoughts are with your family.

i'm so sorry, TS.
I think probably the best you can do for your mom is take care of yourself and try to keep you healthy and strong!
saying a million prayers.

I could recite every word to that song, and realized I was never listening to what he was actually saying. Like the General said, it really puts things into perspective as to what Joel feels. I am so sorry he has to experience that, and sorry to you all for the sadness it's giving you. I hope they find a cure for this soon.
