A Father Tells The Story Of His Son’s Struggle To Stay ‘Clean’
April 03, 2013
26:00 So that comfort and that support was profound for me. Also going into these rooms, you know, I was suffering so much inside and so I would go through my day and I would have to put on his face that everything was OK and I had to work.
I’d go to my younger children’s school and I had to keep it together.
I walked into these rooms and I didn’t have to keep it together.
I was allowed to just sit in the back and feel, whatever it was, this just terror and other people were feeling it, and I was able to cry, and I was able to, there was no pretense in those rooms.
There was this openness that I found it didn’t make things go away, but it made it easier to get to some of the days.
