  •  I just read your blog (5+ / 0-)

    I remembered the story about the boobie in the yard, but for some reason I've never seen the rest of the story here.  

    Having walked the path of mental illness in my own family, with my own children, the feelings you relate are intimately familiar to me.  I have cried, prayed, wished and hoped that something would change and things would get better.  Some days it does.  Other days, we're all back at the bottom of the well together.  

    I hope you have someone as good as Linda sounds to talk with.  I have found someone to talk with, and I think it helps me cope better.  I hope it does.  

    You have loved your daughter and did the level best you could considering everything that was thrown at you and Jay and Alice.  No one chooses this for their life, and anyone who says otherwise is a fool.  I haven't had to suffer a loss as you have, yet I live in fear of it, grateful for every day, week that passes without another incident.  

    I hope you can publish your story.  It deserves to be heard.  Thank you for sharing this with us.  You are a good mother, a good person.
