and we should've done this months ago when my mother started chemo. But who am I kidding, it took us this long just to convince her she needed a cane. (I actually managed to convince her of that by saying I wasn't sure Access-a-Ride would be convinced that I was her cane. I am so tired of being her support. I mean, her literal support. I don't mind being her emotional support, or helping to be her logistical support, but I am soooo tired of having her physically lean on me.)

Anyway, we were pretty much in and out. The longest part was the trip there - but Access-a-Ride even pays for the car service to the office to be approved, which makes sense.

Nearly half of people with one mental illness also experience another mental illness at the same time. This is leading researchers to shift their focus away from individual disorders and search instead for common mechanisms or risk factors that might cause all types of mental disorders. Researchers have now linked specific differences in the cerebellum and pons to many types of mental illness.
