This is a detailed account of how to preserve yourself and your family while helping your loved one recover from mental illness in dignity.

The author candidly shares about the journey with her husband whose bizarre behavior eventually led to the diagnosis of schizophrenia. A true love story of empathy, courage, commitment and perseverance.

Margaret Ong says she now understands her “limit after going through this humbling experience dealing with schizophrenia.”

She also writes, “The journey of primary caregiving has helped me to mature spiritually and taught me the core meaning of faith, enduring love, empathy and social responsibility for others. It has opened my eyes to see the plight of those in a similar boat as Leslie’s.”
