My life has taken me on a unexpected journey. I have been my daughter, Jessica's, sole caretaker since 2001. She's been diagnosed with complex-ptsd, severe panic and anxiety disorder. Mental illness is never a choice. Just like any other illness. It is time to take the stigma out of mental illness.

I would love to hear from anyone else who has a adult child with a mental illness. There must be a number of us from 1970. We could be a source of information for each other. And what life is like when this is your "retirement" alone.

Hi Jack, I'm feeling very nostalgic tonight so I'm going going back to high school and saying hello to all my long, long lost friends. I remember you best from Hardy School. You were one of the funniest kids I can remember. I lived back in Wellesley for a short time in 2004. My mother told me there was only one reliable place to insure my car, with you. My mother was always so fond of you. Just dropped in to say hello from the past.??

When I read your profile JoAnn I am amazed at all your accomplishments. Not that I didn't think you could do it. You have a beautiful family. You must love all the traveling you do, such fun. I'm still in Colorado. Jess has not improved much, but, I have continual hope for her improvement. Feeling nostalgic, and a little homesick tonight, seemed like a good time to visit old friends. ????

My career has been so rewarding, so fulfilling. I have worked with child hood victims of abuse, mostly sexual abuse. While it can be heartbreaking, the joy comes from seeing the small smiles, the progress they make, the new lives they can have. I have been blessed by God to help some children recover

Very sad news. Carl was my neighbor and friend. He lived across the street from me forever. Haven't seen you in a while, but, remember you so fondly.  Rest peacefully Carl
