I ran across this article tonight. I will take a small break from blogging - just feeling exhausted right now - and will post this. It's written by a woman with a severely disabled sibling. Ironically, it is his disability that allows her to be close in a special way with him: her other siblings live far away and/or are too busy with their own lives.
True, that Bil isn't quite this disabled. Should I feel guilty that I can love him and want to do right by him, but it is so hard to connect with him that it can be very hard to like him?
Anyway, I loved this article.
We'll be seeing Bil again soon. And perhaps in February, spending extended time with him again.
