I will keep this brief:
On the first Tuesday of Nov 2004, I went to my evening support group thinking I had fired the President. I returned to find this wasn't the case. Instantly, I spun into a depression. I couldn't focus on my usual work, so to keep busy I pulled out a book manuscript I had been working on. Two and a bit months later - this time four years ago - I had a draft I could show to people. In Oct 2006, HarperCollins published "Living Well with Depression and Bipolar Disorder."
I like to joke to people that I owe the book to George Bush.
Last November, I hired a new President. Let's just say I'm not working on another book.
