In this serialized investigation, I research the possible origins of my mothers severe and chronic psychosis. My mother died of leukemia in early 2009. She had lived with severe mental illness (depression, anxiety, psychosis) almost continuously since 1970, the year my mom underwent brain surgery. I believe my mother's brain surgery caused her to become permanently psychotic. There is evidence that my mother had been a different person prior to the surgery. However, that evidence rests in memories and relatively few family artifacts--neither of which tell the whole story. My hypothesis is that my mother underwent a lobotomy that caused brain damage and resulted in personality changes. My sister and brother are helping me with research and reflection about what happened to our mother. I will post video diaries, journal entries, archival materials, and interviews on wattpad and also on my website donnabarrowgreen.com.
