I am very happy for you. I have a 32 year old son with the same illness. Although he received immediate care and therapy at 17 years old, his progress was not as good. He has periods of stability and periods of relapse.

Every time that I hear of someone's child having one of the more serious mental illnesses, I am very sad because I know what that family (and child) will likely be going through and it is not for the faint of heart.

So it is great to hear good news that someone's child is doing well. I pray for the day that these illnesses will be curable so that no one else's child and no one else's family has to go through what we have gone through. Good luck and continued success.
