This work of creative nonfiction chronicles my upbringing in Southeastern Idaho and my mother's spiral into mental illness/eventual suicide. It shows the struggle of a family as they work through the grief and aftermath of loss, and the way I, as a narrator, was changed by both my mother's illness, and her death.
