Are you a child of a parent who is mentally ill? Are you in a situation where your mother or father denies that they need help or they are sick? Are you experiencing daily struggles, ongoing battles, and walk away feeling hopeless, and defeated? Are you asking yourself the question, "Is there hope, is there a light at the end of the tunnel?

My mother suffers from an array of mental illness - borderline personality disorder, obsessive complusive disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, agoraphobia, possibly more. My mother is among many people suffering with mental illness who think there is nothing wrong them. My mother is not medicated and has not taken medication for years. Her illness has taken over her mind, she no longer is capable of thinking rationally. My mother's personality is very manipulative and controlling. She is very good at making you feel guilty and sorry for her life, it's easy to allow her to control your adult life.

Mental illness is a disease that is rarely discussed among family and friends. Are people ashamed or embarrassed to discuss mental illness? NAMI is an organization focused on educating America about mental illness. Only half of Americans diagnosed with mental illness are medicated. Help me in supporting Nami's mission in insisting that mental illness become a high national priority. Your contributions will help advocate, support, reseach, and educate the American people.

We're working on writing something so riveting for this section that we recommend you sit at your computer and hit refresh over and over until our story goes live.
