Alone, London, in a big city on the street Print
Written by Janice   
One of the instigators for the Birth of a world organisation. I am writing from London, UK after reading your web site. I just want to let you know how incredible it is to see that I am not alone. I was brought up single handedly by a mentally ill and compulsively abusive Mother.
I am an only child and my father died when I was nine. No one would listen to me or believe me when I looked for help I eventually had to cut myself off completely from my mother after she threw me out in the street and said she wanted to kill me. I was 20. No one in my family would help me find her psychiatric help. Indeed, some members of my family excluded me from all family events and tried to cover up the very existence of me and my mother. Her doctor said that there was nothing he could do, that she was not a danger to herself or members of the public and therefore could not be sectioned. She would never accept that she has a problem, she was too sick to realise, and was paranoid and delusional. After ten years of not seeing my mother, I got the news that she had died, alone.  I now have to come to terms with everything that's happened . No one in the family would come to her funeral. If it wasn't for a few friends of mine, I would have cremated her alone. I am receiving counselling, and surprisingly enough leading a normal life with a teaching career. I am still coming to terms with my feelings of anger, loss and terrible guilt. I would like to make contact with people who have been in a similar situation. However I do not know of any support groups or  sites in the UK. I would be grateful to you could advise me or put me in touch with individuals or organisations in the UK, there are support groups for carers of the mentally ill but I can not find any for those who have been forced to cut themselves off from parent/s and /or are dealing with issues of past abuse and rejection by family and society. Thank you for your time and thank you again for your web site.


I think it would be a great idea to start a world organisation and I'd be glad to help in any way I can. Give me ideas on how I can help, I'll do what I can. Please keep me posted on any developments.
