Dear Integral friends,
Yesterday I had a brush with this topic. A daughter of a friend in her 30’s, married with 2 sons. One son is c. 7 year old and autistic, cannot speak, still in nappies etc. She is at breakdown and self medicating on alcohol and whatever pharmceuticals she can lay her hands on and shrooms. She is highly intelligent and driven but the effort of caring for her son is pushing her marriage and she’s making statements like this might be the last time you see me.
Classic depressive’s cry for help. But the friends she parties with don’t recognise this or maybe they do but too out of it to care.
Anyhow her family and those connected hope she will achieve a self witnessing awareness and seek help. Her husband is very supportive but she seems too affected by stimulants to appreciate how much he does.
I turned to this thread that I’d noticed and benedfitted from reading each members contribution.
Any prayers for Alisha would be appreciated.
