My Story:
Hi,

I am a mom of 4-daughters. My youngest daughter was dx at age 6 with ODD (oppositional defiant disorder), then eventually Mood Disorder, nos and quite possible Aspergers. I am fortunate enough to live in CA, where there are qualified / knowledgeable child psychiatrists, and to date, my daughter is doing fairly well. There are ups and downs, but nothing as extreme as when she was un-treated. My daughter is now 14.
My 19 year old daughter has mild depression and an eating disorder.
My oldest daughter is 25, and has a really good understanding of her 2- younger sisters struggles and is pursuing a career in child psychology.
My 21-year old daughter is patient and has a knowledge of mental illness that most adults don't have.
I am blessed, yet face daily struggles that test my patience, but must remember this is not my daughters fault, and I must be her voice!

I am a HUGE advocate for mental health awareness and belong to Bring Change 2 Mind and The Balanced Mind (http://www.thebalancedmind.org/) for support.

Knowledge is Power!
