Exit Stage Left
"The author takes you from the memories of her early childhood to the realities that she faced during the years that followed. From the ages of eleven to sixty-two, for fifty-one years, she fought waves of suicidal thinking to come out on top. While pregnant with her first child, she was hospitalized for a pain that kept her awake for seven consecutive days and nights. A diagnosis of bipolar disorder followed. Finally, after forty-two years, she overcame her psychosis."
