Cathy Jean-Francois had had a long relationship with her unhappiness before she received a diagnosis of depression in her late 20s. It took many more years before she recognized what had catapulted her, as a young child, into her roller coaster emotions. Like so many other health issues, you get help when you have medical coverage and when you don’t have coverage, you don’t get help. Such was Cathy’s story.
It makes sense that an English teacher would write stories… Cathy explains that while it’s something she’s always done, it’s also been a lifeline, it’s been therapeutic, and perhaps, now, she could be helping someone else.
