San Francisco, California
My wife has a mental illness. She was hospitalized for close to one month with acute psychosis. Her diagnosis (still not solidified) is major depression with psychotic features. This blindsided us. This blindsided me. My world flipped upside down. “Sonya” refers to the name I gave my wife when she was at her most delusional, because she reminded me of the Dostoeskvy...

bipolar chick

Raleigh, North Carolina
