Buthena Hussein, the mother of Osama Hamid, waits for her son as he receives electroconvulsive therapy at the Ibn Rushid hospital. Her son, Hussein says, hasn't been the same since 2004. "He's furious all the time and never stays in the house." She didn't know what to do, so she brought him to the hospital. "Everything," she says, "is in the hands of God." (ABC News)
