“I had a therapist once who said that these states will wax and wane. Which gave my mother relief, because it meant that in the bad times, there would be good times. But it also gave her anxiety because it meant that in the good times, there would be bad times.It always confused me, because I didn't really know what it meant. But it did sound a lot calmer than the way I would describe it.”
