For those of you who have followed along, Robin and I have now finished telling our story of the very stressful year we both experienced in 2003 after her meltdown. Our plan is for Robin to write the last chapter of what will become our book. This chapter, which is currently in the works, includes Robin telling the story of how she got from the place of having her life decimated by her mental illness in 2003, to where she is now. She remains stable and content. She continues to experience symptoms of her severe mental illness, but she has learned how to manage these symptoms without the self-destructive behavior that was so prevalent in 2003. She has not been hospitalized for almost seven years.
It was a long process for Robin to get to a place of acceptance of her illness and “deliverance” from the despair she lived with for so long. We hope you will buy our book, which is currently being edited and revised. It will have additional material written by Robin about her history prior to 2003, in addition to the rest of her story leading up to the present time. Our plan is to self-publish the book within the next few months. It will be sold on Amazon both in print form and e-book form, and we will include a link and an announcement as soon as the book is ready. We will include updates as the process of getting the book finished and published progresses.
A disclaimer: All profits from the sale of our book will go to Robin. I have no intention of profiting from Robin’s experiences or her willingness to tell her story to the world. I helped her to write the book because I felt strongly that her story needed to be told, and could help others.
