Reviews From Readers

  • "Your content on family estrangement is stuff I wish I knew 20 years ago."
  • "You are such a beacon for me with these posts on estrangement. I used to google phrases like "my mom is mentally ill + incapable of being a mother" hoping to find some kind or resource."
  • "This comment section has me in tears this morning. I am seeing that I am not alone."
  • "Wow. This HITS and is so validating. Any type of reflection I have had on my childhood with my parents seems pointless. It's hard to work on the present with your parents when they refuse to see or understand your perspective of the past."
