As a young adult I would probably have been characterized as optimistic, ambitious, and extroverted. I took pride in my ability to think quickly and logically. There was no precedent for mental illness.

Marriage for me came somewhat late, but it appeared to offer much that I longed for. We had a nice home. Two wonderful stepchildren, whom I loved dearly, lived with us.
