It’s very interesting for me to see the other side where young people were over treated. The adults in my life didn’t believe in treatment and just told me to snap out of it. I didn’t know how to help my son nor could I afford any medical assistance and the schools were terrible at helping me to figure out what was going on with him. At age 30 he still struggles with the same problems that I have plus substance abuse. I in turn have felt like a horrible mother – yes I know – co-dependence. So the cycle turns. Not that we are not working on it, we are. Things are looking better each day. But for those that were over treated, at least your parents cared enough to try and do something instead of telling you that there was nothing wrong with you and leaving you to feel like you belonged nowhere, least of all in your own family. What does it all mean?
