On Monday: Medical History Part II

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about uncovering my medical history and the relief it gives me as an adoptee to know about the diseases that run in my family.

To be honest, though, it has not been easy to learn the truth about my mother, Lillian. My heart sank when I found out about her struggles with  alcohol and mental illness. She was not the only one in the family to fight those demons.

I’ll tell you more on Monday.
