Mindful of You
A Mother's Memoir of Love, Loss, and Hope
by Nancy Morgan Mumford

After growing up a happy and carefree child, Paul Mumford found himself totally unprepared for what began happening to him at age twenty-three. This is the compelling, true story of his unpredictable downward spiral into bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Presented through the eyes of his mother, this work explores with extraordinary honesty and care the harrowing journey her son faced as he struggled with progressing symptoms ranging from manic rage to full-blown psychosis. It brings into the light the often-untold truth about what mental illness really looks like for the afflicted person and his family. Despite the eventual loss of her son to schizophrenia, the author offers the reader hope as she navigates her way through her first five years of grief with resolve, relying on practical self-help tools and her steadfast faith. "Mindful of You" is a must read for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness, suicide, loss, grief, or hopelessness.
