I now push counseling and therapy on friends constantly. It will get easier financially in 2014 when the Affordable Care Act kicks into full gear, with an increased focus on mental health.
That is too late to help my deceased friends but may help a batch of other friends dealing with the same issues. Also, we should all keep our eyes open for people who are struggling — even if they are big time trial lawyers.
The mightiest of warriors can get wounded, too — on the inside where no one can see. Those wounds need to be addressed before it gets too late.
