    2 of My Cousins From Both Sides of My Family

    I think some psychiatrists don't always know what they are doing. I have a couple of cousins that suffer with different mental illnesses. I feel that my cousin has been treated like a lab rat for the state of California. I remember when she was doing really well a few years ago...
