Our son, age 34, is schizo-affective with bipolar II, and everything I read online indicated he would never "have a lilfe." Carolyn's experience belies this and has given us hope, although, as this book taught us, victims of this disorder come in as great variety as do people in the general, non-afflicted population. Not everyone is as smart and as ambitious as Carolyn, but there is hope for everyone, and we learned not to allow ourselves or our son to be victimized a second time by the negative stigma that mental illness often arouses in others.
Fortunately, our son had a late onset of schizo symptoms and has a college degree and years of positive social interaction, so he may have a slightly better prognosis than some.
This is a must read for parents of mentally ill children.
