Hey Warriors, are you ready? Amy takes a look back and shares with us a small glimpse into her life as a wife and caregiver to one with Bipolar Disorder. The heaviness of Scott's story is not the only side. He wasn't the manic man with delusions of grandeur. He wasn't the depressed man that couldn't leave his bed. Scott, the true Scott, was kind, giving, always willing to listen and then do what he could to help. He was intelligent, hilarious, and charismatic. He was an amazing father and husband and loved his family so hard. Just like someone battling cancer, Scott battled his illness with everything he had. He lost his battle May 13, 2019. Amy is here, exactly 2 years later, to tell their story. It needs spoken into the world so people will understand and in turn, have more compassion for those who suffer; whether it is the individual or the caregivers who tirelessly support them. I want to say publicly that as Amy's friend and partner, the love she showed him and the fervor with which she fought for him is a true testament to her heart and spirit. Big heart, big love.
In honor of Scott, we are asking that today, and the rest of the week, that you practice a random act of kindness (or several), and post it along with tagging us on Instagram @unqualifiedtherapists or Facebook @unqualifiedpodcast or Twitter @UnTherapists and use the hashtag #scottsstory . We look forward to seeing all of the love being spread in his memory.
Sarah & Amy
