We're Lily and Oscar. Our mum, Katinka was stolen from us for a whole year between September 2012 and September 2013.  In that time she didn't attend our carol concerts, prize givings, or sports days.  She was too ill to help us with our homework, she dribbled and couldn't hold a conversation.

When she came off the drugs, within weeks we got our mum back. 

 Now we know how lucky we are because we know of other children who have lost their parents permanently through side effects of antidepressants. 

 

Lily and Oscar share their story in the book  The Pill That Steals Lives
