Virginia state SenatorCreigh Deeds had a great son who started having mental problems. He took his son to the hospital,but there were no beds. The next morning,his son stabbed him and then killed himself.
Nancy Lanza was a mom having dinner with a friend saying her autistic son was doing fine. The next morning, her son Adam,put 4 bullets in her head. He then went to a school named Sandy Hook and murdered over 25 children and adults. Adam died there.
I wrote a diary twice about mySon. He was violent and I am still warning folks as he is now wandering the streets of Seattle in search of drugs.
I failed to talk about my younger son with diabetes. He lives with me and has a history
of letting his blood sugar level drop to below 30. A normal blood sugar level is between
80 and 120.
Once while having a low blood sugar episode,he grabbed a knive and tried to kill his Mother. I took the knive away and drug him to his bedroom and was trying to give him

for sure say violence may happen. Listen to your instincts.If ANY violence happens,
evict the person.
I have lost both of my sons and my wife. I feel a book is in me to tell how a happy family
turned out so ugly.
You will think I am writing fiction when I tell the story about my family,if only I was.

do this type thing.
