I want to finish this book by repeating the themes I have written about. We have looked at the way in which as children we learn how to deal with our pain, grief and sorrow, our frustration and anger. We have looked at the ways in which as adults our loves and our hatreds with other adults are shaped and influenced by our experiences. We have looked at the way big organizations like hospitals, departments of social security, housing departments and prisons make it impossible for us to tell how we really feel.
