Joan’s mother sometimes looks after the children to help out and it cites that she is putting pressure on Joan as she feels Mark should be doing more as he is not working and at home he suffers anxiety and depression. Mary attends school and due to time of school start times she is left with the caretaker in the yard early in the morning for Joan making it into work on time and dropping Rory to preschool.

Lisa is a thirty-four year old women with two children, a boy and a girl. When Lisa was fourteen, she was raped by her uncle and she never received therapy for it. Not receiving therapy has changed her life drastically. Lisa ,although a good mother, suffers from depression,tends to drink a lot more than she should, and suffers from anorexia. Because of this, her social life is unstable. She finds herself yelling when she should not, isolating herself from the world and even disassociating herself at work. Lisa used to be an extrovert, the life of the party. She yearns for the life she had before the rape. She is hesitant to seek help, due to the lack of support the system provides to rape victims that are not minors, but she knows all these effects could have been avoided if she went to therapy.
