Maybe she should have spoken out...maybe things might have been better if she had. Maybe someone could've gotten her the help and treatment she so desperately needed before it was too late. Alas, we'll never know now.
Unfortunately, I do not think seeking help would had help in the matters. All the counseling in the world, could never erase the guilt that haunted Brenda. I truly believe, that she felt responsible in her son's death.
