Mental Illness, Stuttering and Gross Dysfunction
ďThere are families that are dysfunctional with all small letters, others dysfunctional with a capital D, and then there are families that are dysfunctional with all capital letters, and this is your family.Ē
Growing up, the authorís life was far from being perfect. With her parentsí constant fighting (never knowing when it would start, but sure in the knowledge that it would), her older brotherís indifference, her sisterís bipolar and obsessive-compulsive disorder, and her younger brothersí grossly disrespectful manners toward her (including their tendencies to do the wrong things), itís no wonder she has kept a lot of anger inside her. And this, she believes, was the cause of her stuttering. This condition has been a debilitating factor for her, robbing her of confidence during her formative years. Yet she persevered, despite all the familial baggage, and managed to finish college and become her own woman.
