Getting My Night Vision is a mother's collection of essays, poems, stories and notes that reflect the author's painful journey in helping her son fight his mental illness. The poetry is touching and insightful and clearly convey deep sadness and anguish but also hope and the power of a mother's love.
Writing these thoughts and beautiful poems must have aided the author to cope with this crisis in her family but also to convey to others that mental illness is to be understood and the person suffering from it to be unconditionally loved no matter how difficult. It helped me to appreciate my own motherhood. If you know of a family who is suffering because of mental illness, this book will undoubtedly make them feel they are not alone.
