Successful Relapse

It isn't enough to just have a mental illness in your life. There is so much to balance: learning coping skills, managing medications, managing medication side effects, identifying triggers so you're prepared for them when they hit, advocating for yourself because there's a whole bunch of people who don't understand mental illness at all, etc. The list goes on and on. If you're lucky, you have most of this under control. You might also have a solid support base you can turn to for help.

Starting off with the basics, I'm a mother of three boys (mere words can't describe them) ages 21, 15 and 12. They all have ADHD, and one has autism. I've also unofficially “adopted” one or two other people. It’s a thing that just sort of happens.
