You know, I said. One day you get up and you no longer know why you just couldn’t move anymore. Sometimes silence is part of it.
I sat down next to you on the bed and held your hand. What should people say now? I asked.
You said you wanted to hear that you were not alone.
And I said it.
You are not alone, I said.

this Little Roach contains a beautiful story about someone with a burnout. How can you help if someone can no longer get out of bed? Sending this booklet could be a first step. Maybe it offers a little comfort.
