What has been the most difficult thing you’ve had to go through in your life?
One of my daughters was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder/bipolar type at the age of 9, then attempted suicide at the age of 13. She ended up on a breathing machine and was airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Oakland, CA. We came together as a family and thankfully she survived.
She is now married with a son, and we all work with her to ensure she gets the support and help she needs.
