Review by: Dell Afzal on July 31, 2013 :
This story is a heart breaking and raw description of what it's like to live through one's loved one slowly deteriorating from a debilitating mental illness. The fact that he stayed with his wife so long all the way until it's sad ending was so heart warming and proved the author's love of his wife, even to his own detriment. I thank the family and friends who opened this story to those of us seeking knowledge for their kind sharing of an obviously devastating illness. I pray the fact this story has been shared with others helps to heal the family's loss of both individuals.
