An Uncommon Friendship: A Memoir Of Love, Mental Illness, And Friendship

A story of friendship and what we’re willing to do for those we love.

Description: When Stewart Young becomes mentally ill with a variety of disorders, his mind betraying and lying to him, he fights his demons in an attempt to save his own life. His wife, Monique Colver, has her own demons as she takes care of him as best she can while maintaining her own equilibrium. When the marriage ends because of his intense crushes on other women, she continues to take care of him, and their friendship remains strong, despite the isolation, rapid mood swings, hallucinations, and the occasional psychotic episode. An Uncommon Friendship: A Memoir of Love, Mental Illness, and Friendship is their unique true story. Colver gives an in-depth view of mental illness at the most personal level. Through a combination of diary entries and emails written by both of them as Stew fought his illness it gives an intimate view of the progression of his illness and the recovery that appears so close, yet is so far away. It also covers: • The impact mental illness has on a marriage/relationship; • The burn out and isolation that caregivers face • Navigating the way through the maze of doctors, psychiatrists and medical red tape; • The important role of laughter and hope
