James B. Hansom: As a Sailor for many years, one absorbs the rules of the oceans into one’s own life; as such every wave has a peak and a trough. Accepting bi-polar is no different, like a heart-beat you have the highs and the lows, just a little more intense!

The mind is the most important and, at the same time, the most dangerous muscle in our body.

With the voices in her head destroying her self-worth every day, she found solace in Ed’s company.
