During this time, James was fighting his own demons. He dropped out of school. He was in emotional and mental ruins and became addicted to prescription drugs.
Finally, James was diagnosed as manic-depressive in his early twenties. He was placed on Lithium, a mood-stabilizing drug that helped him mange his highs and lows. He founded a self-help support group, "The Mood Exchange," for those who suffered like he did. He was employed as an executive director of a mental health agency for fourteen years before he retired.
As you travel inside James' world of poetry, you can see what he was feeling. This book is about relationships and love. The author writes from the heart and hopes to inspire and touch the lives of those who cross his path.
