Little is known of the illnesses that plague our loved ones.
Functional alcoholics leave clues for outsiders, and for those unaware that love requires investigation, such clues will fall to the wayside never revealing the silent screams of the pained. Make no apologies for looking into things at levels many would not pursue, unless observation is absent action, which makes for spectator versus caretaker. Choose your position, and don’t allow pride to move you. Love forms a circle, and obsession an arc that places all actions into patterns of persistent spirals. Strive not to be, such that all remains is Love.
