We interrupt these tomatoes for seriousness

By Mir

I would really like to keep discussing my tomatoes (or lack thereof), but it’s time for another installment of “Mir pretends to know stuff over at Alpha Mom.” Today’s column comes from a reader question about getting appropriate mental health care for a teen in need, and I really, REALLY wish I had less experience in this area. Even with years of experience, there is no magic bullet, and that’s a bummer.

But if you’re interested in my tips for navigating our broken mental health system as an advocate for your kid and staying sane while you do it, you can check them out over there.

Tomorrow I’ll have a scintillating (okay, maybe not) update on the tomatoes.

    Every time you say you’re writing about tomatoes, I expect something different. Yes, I’ve read too much crime noir this summer.

    Trying to think of something better than OY to say. Really, really excellent stuff you wrote.
