Cara ~ Family - Card #5

Your mom asks, “How are you doing?” and you immediately start sobbing.

“He’s been talking about how depressed he is and that sometimes he even thinks about…hurting himself.  And I’m getting all crazy because I think he’s following me, and then I think I see his car, and – “

“He might be following you, honey.”

You burst into tears again. “I don’t know what to do…”

“Well, he needs help, that’s for sure.  But, honey, you’re not the one who can help him.  He needs professional help.”

“I know, Mom, but – “

“I think it would be wise to stay away from him until he’s doing better.”

“I’m trying.”

“I know.  You’re doing a great job.  I’m so sorry you have to go through this… I wish I knew what else to tell you.  But soon enough you’ll be off to college.”

You wake up the next morning feeling much better.  And it’s Saturday!  No plans until the evening, when you are scheduled to work.
