Well...technically, it's "Understanding is a three-edged sword". Your side, their side and the truth in the middle.
I stand corrected, but my point stands.
Enough about him. I'm just glad that Michael had true friends like JMS, Kathryn Drennan, Sandra Bruckner and others who cared and who tried to help him. They're the ones who deserve attention but never sought it. I'm grateful that I got to hang out with Sandy a bit during the convention.
OK, this is a little more personal than I usually like to get but...yeah, speaking as someone with a family history of mental illness and having been witness to a full-on mental breakdown/departure from reality, one very nearly so and numerous episodes of paranoid schizophrenia (all different people--pardon the pun) I can totally appreciate and respect what O'Hare went though and what it took for those that stood by him to help him though it all.
We can all only hope that at our lowest times there'll be someone there to help us back up again and dust us off..
