More Information
My beautiful 19 year old has been struggling with mental illness since the age of 12. She has had multiple traumas in her life, beginning with childhood sexual abuse and culminating Summer of 2018 when her oldest brother (25) died in a car accident 2 weeks prior to her high school graduation..and being raped by a trusted adult just 4 months later.

After 7 years of diagnoses (and misdiagnoses), emergency hospitalizations, inpatient treatments, outpatient treatments, a handful of therapists and too many meda to count, we believe we are on the right track. Borderline personality disorder is the main diagnosis, along with depression, anxiety and ptsd.

The problem is, she is tired. She no longer wants to live. She sees no hope of feeling better, of having any semblance of a 'normal' life.

I am hoping someone (or many someone's) could send her a card or a letter with a few words of encouragement. If you are a mental illness warrior, even better. I am calling out to this village to help my daughter (and our family) through this difficult time.

**Please note: Due to BPD, she has trouble seeing the gray..everything is very black and white. As such, she is very critical of any talk of religion or God or seeing her brother again.**

I would love to send your daughter some support and encouragement. My e-mail address is: sophie_brisson@hotmail.com if you'd like to send me the address.

    Hi Michelle,
    I have been through much of this with my own son. My heart breaks for her (and for you!) Being a mom is so hard Under the best of circumstances, but loving your child while they are hurting and feeling helpless to “fix” them
    Is especially painful. Please email your address so I can reach out to you both.

    Michelle - I would be happy to correspond with your daughter - she is fortunate to have such a loving, thoughtful mom. I understand about the black & white issue, and very much about the religion and after-life conversations. When my sister died, and even still, 10 years later, I so struggled with people telling me that she's in a better place, and that when I die I will see her again... I just don't believe it. And while I can try step back and appreciate the well-meaning words, I would imagine that for a young person, that must be really difficult. Anyway, happy to reach out if you'd like.
