mental illness is not contagious. you can’t catch it by being kind.



A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!

    1. That’s why I love when you write about day to day life and people you meet; especially love the endearing times you spend with your son. It is very generous of you to share for it helps many others who read the perspective of a caring parent for their adult child suffering form a mental health condition. Namaste


      1. Thanks for reading my words.. You are of the few who do read my blog… Peace be unto us all…


      2. Life and work gets in the way a lot, so I have to admit I do not read many blogs. If I read the hundreds of blogs I follow daily I would have to be a fast reader AND never sleep or work…lol I enjoy your wise humble blogs, Juan.


      3. Dust in the wind.. They served their purpose…the words that is… Peace
