... And through all of this, I worry about 三姨. There's a lot of pressure on her, mostly self-inflicted, about the care of her two parents. She's been dealing with a lot of Grandma's stressful situations for the last 5-6 years.

I said to my Mother-in-Law today that after Grandma Xiao-E... um, goes... 三姨 should maybe go to a therapist to help her deal with everything she's been through. It would be really unfortunate for her to live the rest of her life carrying her emotional burden with her.

The only thing is, there's still a lot of stigma and misconception around therapy and counselling in Taiwan. I suggested that she might want to consider coming here, live with us for a few months, get counselling here so no one has to know back home.
