After months of tranquility, yesterday was a really bad day. Another bloody episode that undermined Catherine's progress. I left her unattended for 5 minutes, while I was washing the dishes, and when I found her, she was sitting in the floor silently clawing her nails all over her face. She was bleeding so bad that I could barely see her eyes. Instead of getting mad, my reaction was to cry, cry so loud like a baby; she was in shock, I picked her and I took her to the bathroom; while I was cleaning her face, she said: "I'm sorry". I felt devastated, like the worst caregiver ever. Hopefully, she can heal faster from this.
