I feel a bit sad for Susanna. Some how her kids have not heard her advice along the way.

Not at all, simply someone who found the letter irritating and a bit pathetic. If I were in that situation, and I may yet be as my eldest is still only 16, I would not outline my feelings about it in an open letter on a public forum. I have to assume also Julie that your sentiments apply equally to Mrs Churchill and Rebecca - are you going to chide them as well? - Sly Place
For all those people suggesting this is a 'needy' letter, how about looking at it as expecting to be treated the same way your children treat their friends? Do they go to their homes for dinner empty handed? Leave a mess because they're too busy to clean up? It's about growing up and realising that your parents are people, too, and treating them with respect and consideration. - Benster

I have tried walking several distances with other people. It is called empathy and along the way I have learnt a lot doing this. As I understand it from short grabs on the radio, the DSM5 also expands the category of post traumatic stress too. - ro.watson
Medication has its place in treating mental illness. Unfortunately long term therapy is simply too expensive for most people. I go twice per week, I am out of pocket $200 per month until the medicare safety net kicks in. "Talk" therapy needs to be made more accessible and affordable. My dr charges $180 per session and believe me, that is cheap. You also need to be able to pay the bill upfront and then claim any rebates. I don't doubt that many people who need therapy are forced onto medication instead; unfortunately it's the cheaper option. Shame. Thanks to therapy I am now able to be without medication . - missjones

I never find time to go to the movies, so when I do it’s a pretty big deal. But I’m so glad I was dragged on a girlie movie date to see The Help. Unlike my date, I hadn’t read the best-selling book of the same name by Kathryn Stockett (though I might give it
I highly recommend a book called The Murderous Urges of Ordinary Women, by Lois Meltzer! Sick of being invisible in the eyes of society? This book is about four 50-year-old women who realise their invisibility is also their power. To not be noticed allows them the freedom to wreak havoc on those who deserve. A
I really love the Hoola Hoop I got for my 13th birthday! It’s bright orange. I got it in the late 60s. I still have it – I keep it in a secret place in the garage because I don’t want it to be accidentally thrown out. I am now in my mid-50s and every
