Quote:This is quite personal, and I very much like the humorous end to it.I'm not so sure I would be able to be as open about something this personal with the public, but I have known you for nearly forty years, and in that time I have never known you to have difficulty speaking your mind.And by being so open about the obstacles you faced with mental illness, and your determination to persevere, I am willing to bet that you may help someone out there that reads the postings on CN. Good for you!-Bob
