Abdul watches his mother die from AIDS and barely surviving the time he spent in a hellish foster home. Later on, Abdul found himself in an orphanage staffed by pedophile priests, after he was previously beaten and raped by one of the boys of his foster home all before he turned 14.

This book tells the whole story of mental healthcare from the patient to the family affected by it, how the illness destroyed Sylvia Frumkin’s life and how she dealt with it, how the system did and didn’t help her, and how she persevered.

My decision on this matter comes from my grandfather. Long story short, he and my grandmother both fell at home within twelve hours of each other, they were taken to the local hospital, spent a few days and were then taken to a nursing home, where my grandfather felt that he was now less of a man because he could no longer provide for his wife and kids, in which he slowly gave up.
