Another crazy mom

Every time I even think about this tragic story, I get big tears in my eyes. To think of a mother being so crazy that she cuts off her own baby's arms is just beyond me. Then again, I can't imagine ANY mother hurting her children. Hell, I feel guilty putting eye drops in Stinkerbelle's eyes right now because she has the "eye gunkees" from allergies.

The Dena Schlosser murder trial starts today. The gal has been in the state's mental faclity for crazy whacked out criminals. I had a brother-in-law in there, too, for a while. He threatened to kill me, Uzz and our newborn son on the day of our son's baptism. That guy was nuts, too.

Mental illness is sad, sad thing. My mom is better now that she is on medications, but she was so scary for a while that I wouldn't let her watch my children. I didn't know what she might do to herself or others because she got so bad for a while. We think some of it is organic in her and was combined with a number of prescriptions medications she was on all coming to a head and making her completely paranoid. Mix that with her manic depression and it was a potentially deadly combination. But, thankfully, my husband told her that she wasn't going to see me or the kids any more if she didn't get help. That was the catalyst for her seeking it. Thank God for that.
