When I went public with my mental illness it didn’t feel much like a choice. After decades of suffering, suddenly colliding symptomology threatened to take my life. If this living thing was to mean anything, I had to offer everything I had: which was my story. Recovery, such as it has been, became it’s own story, complete with an experimental magnet-based depression-busting device. And that eventually became my book, “After Depression: What an experimental medical treatment taught me about mental illness and recovery.” … Maybe it will encourage others.
