My LO has also taken on many of the characteristics of those in this article. Many of those around her are grasping for anything they can to make the time go easier, but the things they get into end up having the opposite effect.
Thanks for letting me know you found it relevant. 10 or 20 years isn't "life" but it is a significant percentage of a lifespan. From what Tammy has said I think the trick is to live inside the system without surrendering to being institutionalized.
