Psychiatry’s Achilles’ heel; mothers

“Poisons and medicine are oftentimes the same substance given with different intents”  ~Peter Mere Latham

I did say I’d put our Wicklow talk up at some stage didn’t I? The file is too big to put up all together so here’s a ten minute section of me waffling and Maria doing what she does best. She’s an amazing friend. She’s also an inspiration.

  1. These two ladies are just absolutely amazing. Through their turmoil & grief they stand relentless against anything that is thrown at them. They show no fear against taking on anybody in the medical / pharmaceutical field. They have been through the worst thing that life can ever throw at you, yet are still there to hold everybody who needs them up. I was privileged to be invited to this eye- opening & emotional conference & had the pleasure of meeting & hopefully keeping these two wonderful ladies, Leonie & Maria in my life.


  2. Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light (Helen Keller). Its an honour and a privilege to walk with you Mrs F and to keep walking while kicking the butts of those who deserve it. Especially for someone as uncoordinated as me 🙂


    1. Maria’s acknowledgement of how she viewed suicide prior to her son’s death was probably true for most of us. The change of opinion true also.
