“Broken. Her mental health is the reason she got up and left. She thought she was not worthy of me and Xavier,” Bette shook her head as she looked out of the window of the private room.
“Has she always been ill?” Shane asked
“Yes, but it’s been very different, I mean she’s very anti-social, she doesn’t like the city. She’s been alone a lot of her life. I think her parents may have abused her and she’s hidden it. She’s cracked. She thinks that we don’t want her. She left because she thought she had too.” Bette explained.
“Can we get her help?”
“I can and I will, it’s important to me. She may never be completely free of it but I want her to have the best help to ensure she can have the best life. Xavier and I need her. I love her so fucking much” Bette admitted
“We know, you’ve changed your life completely to be with her. She loves you just as deeply. She’s struggling and whatever we can do to help you…”
“I know. I need to get her home but she’s going to need so much help. I need to find a therapist that she trusts. She needs to talk, she needs the right medication and she needs understanding and love.”
“Everything that you can give to her.”
“I’m scared of losing her. Waking up and her being gone scared the shit out of me.”
“I bet. Anything you need we will help,”
“Erm If it’s not too much to ask can you get us some nightclothes for Tina, I’m not sure how long she’s gonna be here and she’s uncomfortable in the gown they have her in.”
“Yeah sure, do you need anything?”
“I will have to go home this evening and I’ve got enough stuff for Xavier till we head home.”
“Okay, I will get some stuff for Tina,”
“And bring her drawing pad and some pencils. She will want to draw when her mind starts to wonder. She’s going to be in hospital a while, they won’t let her out until she’s stable mentally. They have it’s best if I’m only here some of time to try and give them the space they need to get her stable.” Bette remarked.
“I will bring everything, what time are evening visiting hours?”
“6:30pm to 8:00pm. I will leave at 6pm, could you bring stuff for visiting hours.”
“Sure. You have to go home?”
“Yes Shane, when you see her you’ll understand, she’s mentally broken.”
“I’m okay to visit her?”
“Yes, please, I need to care for Xavier,”
“I will be there, with stuff for her. We will get you both through this,” Shane remarked.
“I know, it’s just going to take time.”
Shane and Bette said their goodbyes and Bette then changed Xavier dapper. Before feeding him. All the time Tina slept. Bette’s mind was racing. She hoped that right now her love and commitment was strong enough to get through this. Tina had left them in the middle of the night she knew her wife was ill, but at the same time it was hard for her. Tina had walked out of the house leaving her child behind. Bette hoped that with time, space and help for them both they could overcome this. She looked down at her son. She felt the weight of the world was now on her shoulders.
