Well put, Karen. I can say that I would not have the life I do without the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance. I am sorry that the original writer would not give her name; surviving is something to be proud of. Yes, it is sad that 3-East is closing, but I am confidant that the other two inpatient facilities will continue to serve our needy population as best they can. I, like the anonymous author, suffer from chronic pain as well, which does quite a number on my mental health. In my 12 years with the DBSA Colorado Springs, I have met others who have the same issues. No, we are not all alike but we all share something in common--the desire to not feel so alone and helpless. I am sorry that the author of the original letter has not found the same level of support that my friends and I have.
