Larry Cox fromThe Tucson Citizen ...

Larry Cox from The Tucson Citizen wrote this review of Mommy I’m Still in Here:

“Kate McLaughlin, a Tucsonan and member of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance and the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation, knows firsthand what bipolar disorder can do to a family. Two of her three children, now young adults, were diagnosed with bipolar disorder during adolescence. Her candid, courageous and uplifting book is an account of suffering, helplessness, grief, guilt, and eventually, acceptance. She wrote the book as a way to heal herself and millions of others, parents and children alike, who are confronted with this illness.”

Mommy I’m Still in Here chronicles the toll and emotional turmoil as experienced from the point of view of a frustrated, guilt-plagued parent. After making peace with her children’s illness, she set about accepting them as they are. As she explains, bipolar disorder is a factor in the genetic mix that makes her children unique individuals.”

Many thanks, Larry Cox!
