2013 Mental Health Hero Cartoon-A-Thon
Drawing by Chato Stewart
I’ve been through a lot and I’m still here to write about it. Can you imagine being diagnosed and treated for Thyroid Cancer during Hurricane Katrina? And to be Bi Polar on top of everything and survive that ordeal?
How about the fact I was able to write a funny memoir with little computer knowledge and zero writing skills in 9 months. How about the fact that my mom had a nervous breakdown when I was 10, sent to a mental institution, received lots of shock treatments and never recovered. So basically for 30 years I had to watch her decline year by year in various mental institution then being placed in a nursing home at the young age of 45. I think I’m the only person in my hometown of Rayne, Louisiana that talks openly about living with Bi Polarism (bipolar disorder).
My husband and I lost our entire retirement in this recession, trying to raise a family of six, trying to send 3 kids to college on one salary because mom can’t work is a nightmare. I really could use a break in life.
Sincerely, Desiree Cart Dugas
