This blog was started because of my need to write about my daughter, Justine, who died two years ago in a car accident. I’m coming up to my year anniversary and I’ve come a long way on my journey. I had already written a book about her life and I wanted to share more. I hope to have my book published this year.
I know from my own experiences that often people don’t want to ask about our loved one for fear it will bring up sadness or bad memories for the family. This blog has allowed me to address the topic first and I find everyone is more than willing to discuss Justine with me. This brings joy into my life.
I don’t want to write every single day about my loss because I need to live my life. I do, however welcome questions. There is no topic off limits. My book contains a very frank and open account of what we went through in order to find help for Justine’s Bi-polar disorder. It is a memoir of her life from my point of view, as her mother. I certainly don’t claim to have all the answers and I’m not a psychiatrist but I can relay what happened to us.
Is there anything you are curious about? Can I help you?
