"His outbursts are not toward me but to protect himself. He lives in a world of constant mental chaos and instability in which he does not know what is real or imagined. Over the years he has been to many treatment centers and counselors. Many have told me to put him in a home and move on, but I just can't do that. What I have come to understand is that his anger is his attempt to communicate with the world. His anger makes him real and allows him to feel. His anger does not let me or the world forget him."
