Psychosis, An Altered Reality
We take him to the hospital, after 5 hours in Emergency we see a Dr, they immediately give him antispsychotic medication. For 2 months William’s psychosis powers on. He is heavily medicated. He continues to escape locked wards; scales walls, jumps off the roof, breaks through windows. It is exhausting and the most frightening thing I have ever witnessed. As his Mum I can’t see an end to it.

Survivor Guilt, Why Don't I Feel Lucky?
But for now, all I feel is remorse and a total sense of responsibility for such a tragic outcome being bestowed upon someone else when I have been spared. This horrible catastrophic natural disaster happened, I was there to help, to fight to save people, their homes and communities. Instead we were fighting for our lives, to simply survive the event ourselves. I was pulled from the frontline for a mandatory rest period and someone else died in my place.
