Chato B. Stewart says,”Recovery is not a cure, rather the ability to live our lives with balance and dignity. To be able see and have real hope.”
This might be hard to conceptualize since not long ago, the only hope was in our hopelessness. It takes real work, and there will always be bumps in the road, but we can do it!! We can have recovery!! We just need to watch out for uninformed and uneducated friends/caregivers that just DON’T have a clue to what we need… Today’s example of Doc Bob Bob really hits this point home.
Wow, talk about kicking someone when they are down! This cartoon first posted on September 15, 2008. It’s funny because I just read that General Motors will be stopping the Hummer production early next year.
Doctor Bob Bob sometimes gets a little self-involved but in the end, he normally gets/gives a little good advice… Into this ‘toon, it was “going for a walk.”
I hope this abstract look at a bad example will make you think of all your good therapeutic experiences!!
