This is at a book signing with Kaylie Jones (Left) and myself in 2010. She is the author of “Lies My Mother Never Told Me” in which she chronicles her struggles with drinking and overcoming her demons. I wept as I told her about my struggles with bipolar and the loss of a friend. She understood me. Years later, she would be there for me when my father died (she lost her father when she was sixteen). Her kindness and wisdom have helped me alot. To her I say thank you. I hope you know your story is important. I hope I can know that mine is too.
