“It’s heart­break­ing to watch some­one you love strug­gle so,” Deb­bie once said of Car­rie’s bat­tle with bipo­lar dis­or­der. “As a mother, I find the hard­est thing for me is to love my daugh­ter and not to in­ter­vene in her life. I want to do ev­ery­thing hu­manly pos­si­ble to keep my girl out of pain, to pick her up when she’s down. If I could, I would suf­fer for her.”
