Good news is that my sister is in stable condition now and she's on the right meds and doing so much better. This whole ordeal really brought to light just how fucking broken the US healthcare system is, and even so for people who do have proper insurance and the means to afford healthcare.
Yeah, our healthcare costs are astronomical, but the quality of care also sucks shit. No surprise there. But I don't want to get into too much detail about this.. Piob can work on our nation's healthcare problems. Now... whether he'll make a positive impact, we shall see
ANYWAY, I had been struggling too coping with my sister's condition and just general life / job stress. I ended up taking some time off of work and I will say it was the best thing I have ever done for myself.
I spent the time off to really tackle my issues and I've come a long, long, long way since May. I almost feel like an upgraded person and I love it.
All-in-all, I'm so much happier in life right now and I'm honestly excited and optimistic about my future.
And a special thanks to all who offered kind words of encouragement a couple months back (and to OTC who was the only member to worry about my whereabouts and PM me, asking me if everything was okay).
