Ben texted me today, with the usual message: “Call me when you get this.” Often, this causes my anxiety level to rise – what could be wrong now?” . This time, Ben added “I have good news for you.” The news? He got an 85 on his first acting assignment! Wow. Wow. I am happy today. So is Ben. Staying in the moment, always a goal. But I’m so glad about any day that brings news like this. Also, listening to a taped “Psych 101” course, learned that over half of the people with schizophrenia are also addicted to drugs…and Ben has been clean 5 1/2 years. He has so much courage. I must never take that for granted.
