Growing up the Identified Patient in a family with a father who had Schizophrenia. I was 2 weeks old when a car accident left my father with a chemical imbalance in his brain due to blunt force trauma, The same very thing that took his life 22 years later and a Mother who lived with OCD. She had a compulsion to cleaning and perfection, anything not done right was done wrong. I was the Parentified Child in the house, mom worked full time, dad was also an alcoholic. I have had a life full of opportunity to grow.
