Caring for and Loving My Son in Spite Of

Romane Canty, Maryland

My son is an adult with epilepsy (grand mal seizures) that started in his childhood and progresses as he gets older. I am very proud of him because he went to college and worked most of his life and is working today. As his caregiver, a few people are very cruel and disrespectful to me and my son. Last month, we moved away from a public housing community in Annapolis, Maryland, where the landlord and owners were allowing illegal drug addicts to threaten, harass, and harm us. A person with severe disabilities needs a safe and non-hostile environment. I am now in touch with all of the resources that will help my son and me to achieve a more positive and harmonious life in this journey. “One Day at A Time,” it gets better.
