A Mother Reflects

“At times, we walk on eggshells in fear no matter what we say or do will be the wrong thing and trigger an outburst. Pained and paralyzed not knowing how to help; as your loved one is misdiagnosed, added to yet another wait list or presents well and is told ‘you don’t qualify’ or ‘There are others worse off’ ” - Diane Boca
