Mental illness and courage

FDL commenter says I am channeling Norske:

Also sounding like me3 who gave me a BLISTERING when I first came onto firedoglake. I had the temerity to bring up Plame pardons and vote tampering as possible obstacles to our joyous certainty of turning the country around.

John Casper bless his heart spoke on my behalf to say that some people were ahead of the curve and that such far-seeing scouts deserved our attention. THANKS J.C.

Easy to be discouraged (1) if you keep up on the real news (2) if you, like me, are mentally ill and all of life is hard. If going to the grocery store is difficult, and working alone in Russia is difficult, why not go ahead and work in Russia? My liver will recover...probably.

On the other hand: evidence of COURAGE-----

***giving birth to 3 children

***existing despite mental illness*..................................... *alive not the alternative

***going to Russia 28 times alone to save lives

***am a Scottish Highlander by ancestry. FIGHT!!

***believing WE CAN TURN THIS COUNTRY AROUND

***working with total strangers to make a difference.

FIGHT BACK!! TAKE ACTION!! PROTECT THE CHILDREN!!
