I’m the single mother of two teen boys, and I’ve both had and come into close contact with a number of forms of mental illness.  I want to use this blog to talk about mental illness and forms of recovery, as well as the ways that mental illness is perceived in our society, and, in the meantime, I am working to finish that novel that I have always been meaning to write.  It still needs another revision or two…I write using fictional names for everyone who’s not a public figure so that my sons can have some privacy.
