THIS is the kind of story that helps other families envision working together against the illness instead of wallowing in anger and guilt and cowering in fear of the disorder. The mother saw the illness as just that, and herself as a parent as just that. It's work, but it is work that is possible and is for the patient's best interests. Later, the patient is free from the illness and able to think more clearly.
This is an empowered family, and a young woman with a future.
