She Is Home….Now What?

We are all thrilled with the news that Mendy is home! I have been giddy excited for her….and desperate to pray for her and all that she faces in her home. When you are in therapy, you are surrounded by those who are struggling like you and you are learning things…or trying to…every single day! Then…you go home. I would feel so victorious in therapy and pretty proud of my hard work….and then I would look around my home and feel so very defeated.

You are surrounded by all the familiar sights and sounds….but you are different. Everything is the same….like it has somehow frozen in time, and you feel like you viewing your territory in some sort of outside dimension. It is like those movies where the ghost is watching life and trying to talk but the people don’t hear anything. You see life happening, you see the scene play out and where your character used to have their part, but now there is a blankness in that spot as your character has completely changed roles and you are not sure where you fit in or what you are supposed to say or how you are supposed to act.

You feel like you want to belong in this thing called everyday life…but you don’t know how. It is an extremely overwhelming and emotional place to be. So what can be done to help now?

I had many people in my life that were wonderful to me in these areas. I have had others in my life who have repeatedly broken my heart because they just don’t get it and their harshness feels like one more thing to deal with. Don’t be that person in Mendy’s life. Don’t make the Monday’s for Mendy just about praying for physical healing or movement. Make it a day to pray for her, encourage her with a note on her Facebook page (that takes all of 2 seconds but makes a huge difference in your day), be patient with her, and don’ judge anything she decides to do for the best of her health or family.
