Thank you for sharing my fears for this country and for children like yours so vividly and honestly. I am a 25 year-old pediatric nurse and I have come along many children with various mental illnesses- many of which are intelligent and bright- and I have wondered, "what will happen when these children grow up?" Now along with that question after reading your article, I wonder, "What is happening to the parents of these children while they are still children, and then into adulthood?" With the absence of institutions in the US for the mentally ill, and our broken healthcare system the future scares me. I hope we can come together and find a solution for what we can do to help these children- who are bound to grow into adults- and their families. Thank you for sharing and I hope more people share their stories so that we can make some progress on this complex issue.
