my daughter was burned at 2 months of age. I was the first and only person to see her in the fire. I got her out of the fire. That was over a year ago and as time goes on, as she gets better, I get worse. I go thru the steps, I do what I have to do to make sure she recovers, all at the same time I am slipping further and further from myself. I dream that people are trying to kill her.
