Look past the disease, look deep into their soul they are an individual, they are family. Reality ?This disease is a demon and must be treated as such, but treat the person with love, respect, compassion, and above all patience. When they lash out we have no idea what battles they are truly fighting inside their minds, we can only surmise. Is their life like looking through slats of time, a glimpse of the past, present, and future? no one truly knows unless you are the person on the other side of the conflict with the disease.

Just beyond the slats
vision of thoughts are clear
sometimes I reach the other side
tis then my heart it feels no fear

I cling to someones touch
a kiss upon my cheek
an understanding of my trial
they see my heart and speak

If I could choose to rid disguise
and drop this heavy burden
would be my glory my victory story
the rising of the curtain!
