People tell me I'm a mom on a mission. I am on a mission. We have to make the case for effective, compassionate care for those with serious mental illness (SMI) and to do that we have to tell our stories. KETTLER - AXOS Indoor 3 - Table tennisBoots Ski Mountaineering Skialp Touring Speedtouring Scarpa F 80 F80 New 2018 Stories about tragedies that could have been prevented. Stories about the need for beds and housing. Stories about outrageous HIPAA laws that prevent us from helping those we love. Stories about our missing and homeless children and mothers and fathers. Stories about our sons and daughters in jails and prisons and solitary confinement without treatment. And on and on...

We have to do this. Nothing else is working. Not healthcare. Not government. Not prisons. Everything's fraught with hidden agendas, bureaucratic incompetence, and self-interest. Or lack of interest.Surfboard Torq Epoxy TEC Fish 6.6, Surfer Board, Surf Board NEW.Stringerless Surfboard Shortboard 2018 Predator (HDPU) 6ft0AQUAGLIDE Metro 3 Hot Dog Towable 3 Rider HD DuratexTM Tube Boat 58-5214016.

I hear many of you in the SMI community say, "So much has happened I could write a book." I believe you could write a book. Why not warm up here? Let's move our stories out of closed Facebook groups and anonymous support groups into mainstream discourse. 2016 Head Worldcup Rebels GS Race SkiBrunelli 12.6 Premium Sup Touring Isup Double Layer Surf-Board bluee 381cmLet's bombard the public/legislators with accounts they won't be able to ignore.

For Patrick and his sisters,
Megan, Marisa, and Kerry.
And for the mothers.

Mothers are the people who love us for no good reason.
And those of us who are mothers know it's the most
exquisite love of all.

From the back cover:2019 Hyperlite Union Men's Cable Wakeboard
I had no idea, as I was writing my diary (June 15, 2013 — June 15, 2014) that I was capturing the last year of my son’s life. Pat died, unexpectedly, on July 23, 2014, on a hospital psych ward. Suddenly, my diary morphed into a more poignant record than I’d anticipated and, after he died, I discovered Pat had been making regular posts on Facebook. I decided to add his comments to my own.
One day, you know it will be your turn. Something alters your projection. There’s a major shift and then events will be referenced as “before” or “after.” Your life as it was versus the way it is now. In Sooner Than Tomorrow, I learn — right along with the reader — what will happen next. We’re all on a journey. Thank you for going on this journey with me.”
