‘I Am Adam Lanza’s Mother’: A Mom’s Perspective On The Mental Illness Conversation In America.

This is gripping and the writer is right…mental illness like a cold or the flu is very real and until our society releases the stigma attached and stop dismissing people telling them to just be happy and get over it…these tragedies will continue to happen

  1. The problem is all they are saying is Lanza had Asperger’s. As I recall from reading this article earlier, “Michael” has a different disorder than Lanza. I am quoting from my friend’s facebook wall because she said it best:
    “With all the speculation and comments flying around about the Sandy Hook shooter, I just want to say that autism and Asperger’s Syndrome are not, Not, NOT mental illnesses! Autism/Asperger’s (AS) are NEUROLOGICAL conditions. And AS is autism–a very hi-functioning form of it. The inference I keep hearing is that Lanza had AS and killed 26 people–you do the math.

    Lanza wasn’t a killer because of his AS–he was a killer, and he also had AS.”

    That being said, I feel for this mother who is having so much trouble getting the help her son needs and I agree with her that he doesn’t belong in jail.
