This is about the time I chose not to die.
Mike Monteiro

I had no idea how to feel happy until I found the medication that lifted the fog in my brain. I had felt moments of happiness, of course. I just didn’t believe that I was supposed to feel that way all the time. For years I knew there was something chemical going on that affected my moods. But it took 20 years to discover I could alter that balance — for the good — and I thank the two courageous friends who took charge of me when they recognized what I was going through. Thank you Genie. Thank you Nancy.
