Re: Alex Stevenson's Chat Thread. (!!!)
I firmly believe that Alex could have remained a Top 20 star for more than just one year if her Mother had just let go and allowed her to find her own way as an adult woman. Injuries did play a role in 2004, but what really kept her from her full potential was the weird relationship with the Mother. Then again, it must be next to impossible to extract herself now from the Mother.
How great would it be if Alex walked in the door tomorrow and said, "Mom, I love you and thanks for everything, but I found someone who will help me get in the best fitness of my life so long as you're not involved, and this is my only chance, so ... I have these really great nursing home brochures and it would be great if you spent some time looking them over."
She'll be okay, whatever happens. She still has an entire adult life of adventure waiting for her.
