It’s been one year

It’s the one year since Damian began his rapid decent with his BiPolar Disorder.

In that year he has been hospitalized 9 times and placed in two different residential care facilities.

The longest time he has been at home in the past year is 38 days.

He has attempted suicide more than 20 times in this past year.  10 of those attempts have been in the last month.  He is learning “how to” from each attempt.  Statistics say he will eventually succeed.  I hate statistics. 

I am no longer praying for him to come home, I  am simply praying for him to stay alive.
