A loving mother of an addict and mentally ill son.
on May 21, 2013
Wow I could not put this book down. This mom speaks for all the moms out there whose voices of concern about their child go on deaf ears. I am inspired by her strength to look in the present instead of dwelling in the past. Life is difficult and when you have a child that does not fit into a perfect box ( aka none of the health professionals knowing if he was mentally ill) in fact even when this mom knew something was not right she had to jump through hoops to get her son help due to privacy laws. This also delayed her knowledge of his heroine addiction since age 15. Thank you for writing this story it helped me to understand loving detachment verses enabling behaviour.
