Thoughts on life

Lunch With Mother-In-Law

I saw my mother-in-law for the first time since before Thanksgiving today. You see she doesn’t approve of my current boyfriend and told me basically as long as I am with him she has to keep her distance. To be honest, when she said that it really pissed me off. I feel like who I decide to have a romantic life with is my business and choice. That choice of mine shouldn’t dictate whether or not someone is involved in my life. I don’t know I think it goes deeper than that.

I sent her a message saying I missed her and the next thing I knew we had a lunch date. It was great. We caught up on what has been going on in our lives, the good, the bad, the ugly. We had a yummy lunch, then once she took me home she gave me my christmas presents. Yay presents! I told her how I recently messed up my bank account writing checks and on her way home she deposited the money in my account to cover it. How nice is that?? I hope we are on the mend. I really do. I miss her so much. She also took some of my laundry with her and if you saw how my laundry has taken over my closet you would know how big of a deal that one is. So mama is hopefully back in my life. It felt really good to be taken care of today in a way only a Mama can. Not much beats that.

My name is Sarah Jones and I am the author of the blog "Inside My Manic Mind". I began blogging as a way to cope with my grief after my husband's suicide October 23, 2017. Like my husband, I also suffer from episodes of severe mental Illness. My goal is to educate those who are not mentally ill about what mental illness is and what it isn't. I hope that by educating people we can fight the stigma surrounding mental illness that still exists, even in 2020. I also am reaching out to those suffering from mental Illness and relating to them with my personal experiences. Lastly, if I can save a single life from suicide and their families the heartbreak that follows, I am not only honoring my late husband but hopefully helping someone feeling so alone and desperate by letting them know they are NOT alone. To me, that would be success.
