Summary
This is the story of Sean and Sharlene who met, married, and had a family. But soon Sean's drinking took over, and signs of depression and his raging outbursts worsened. Something was seriously wrong. He never talked about his tours overseas, including his seven month peacekeeping mission in the aftermath of Slobodan Milosevic's ethnic cleansing campaign, but there were signs that what he experienced in Bosnia left him reeling at his core. As Sean's behaviour grew increasingly worse, Sharlene's obsessive worry for his well being trumped her basic needs. She knew that her husband was suffering from tremendous inner turmoil, which she later learned was PTSD, and she hoped, more than anything, to nurse him back to the loving partner and father she knew he could be. A powerful story of pain and forgiveness, horror and hope, Blind Devotion gives voice to the thousands of families who are struggling to heal and to achieve the sense of normalcy stolen by the trauma in their lives
