My wife is funny. My wife is brave. My wife is amazing.
Despite all the pain, confusion and struggles with the acceptance of having a mood disorder label, such as depression, she find opportunities to share her ambivalent openness to it actually being true. Here are 2 examples, which she approved for sharing:
Recent Whatsapp chat messages that she wrote (in less than 2 minutes), regarding 10 tins of tuna that we ended up having, after not coordinating the shopping between us.
Is 10 cans of tuna fish a sign of:
f) fear if famine
h) lack of communication
i) was on special (discounted)
j) for making tuna patties (lots of them)
k) need tins for a school project

m) to give me a project to do a multiple choice questionnaire about
n) none of the above
o) Oll of the above”
Congratulations for getting through that list.
Finally, one morning this week I found this (below) bag of garbage at the front door.

Without any hesitation, my wife repied: “When it has bipolar!”
HUMOR IS IMPORTANT.
APOLOGIES – OUR HUMOR IS UNIQUE.
Have a great weekend.
