Dear Nicole,

Thank you, for the grand honour to be on The Lithium Chronicles once again with ‘Harnessing the Madness.’ This piece is as close to how I feel in my heart about my mother, and our journey together through the battle that is Mental Illness.

From my Bleeding Ink heart to yours, always…
