a) not the majority of delusionals are stress-free. And we sometimes make mistake combining their lack of "our stresses" (job, commute, caretaking) with our lack of experience with theirs: abuse at the hands of their caretakers, isolation, loneliness, being locked up, having to sell home to pay, etcetcetc.
b) as for the kids, i only know of a former co-worker who once worked in kids ward and nearly became an alcoholic for not being able to cope with seeing how well the kids would adjust to a sense of self-worth and humane treatment over months only to be returned to an animal state over the course of a weekend visit. i think the Alliance for the Mentally Ill is trying to make it mandatory for outpatients to take their meds due to the overhousing problem, etc. i know my step was released due to overcrowding, got violent after being off meds, got arrested, woulda been jailed/inst'd a long while had my atty stepmom not intervened and got him into her custody cuz he was also suicidal. that sorta took 'care' of THAT side of my family in one swell foop. in my tenure, i can't say i know more about the illness, but more readily RECOGNIZE IT. totally different issue, and i agree with you. hey, guys, i gave fair warning, didn't i? :) g ps how did i know this was offshoot of your earlier question to me waaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy down there? wanna triscuit and brie?
