A Burden to be Well (WFCR)
This is a link to the MP3 version of the radio documentary featuring Lynnie and me and other siblings with mental illness (which was was rebroadcast this morning) that I wrote about a few posts back. It may be of interest to any who are family members of those with schizophrenia or another major mental illness. Warning: with respect to our story, there are some inaccuracies, a couple of which are substantial -- eg I did NOT weigh "under 90 pounds" I weighed exactly 100lbs and there is a big difference! And others, none of which should have occurred, since the documentarian should have had the proper information on tape. In any event, none of the errors detract from the truth of the story per se, but be aware that a few of the facts as presented are not strictly factual.
