I am not saying there was nothing wrong with me. You may have noticed there was not a single family member, aside from my kids, who even sent me a get well card let alone paid me a visit during the 6 weeks I was in Whitby.
To say the least we were not and still are not close which I believe in itself is a sign of mental illness. My 2 brothers, 2 sisters and I all had wicked childhoods and we have each paid the price, in our various ways, for those abusive childhoods. I partially write these words for others who may be suffering, or know others who are suffering, as we did and not know it.
Learn all you can about mental illness as soon as possible. It should be taught in public schools from ages 10 or so on.
