Thank you for the response
First of all, thank you so much for the incredible response to my last post about dealing with a relapse of manic depression. I was really overwhelmed by how many people wrote to express their support. Despite a busy summer touring, recording and playing festivals, weddings and private house shows, we're actually trying to lay low this fall and settle into a routine at home for the first time in nearly a decade. What a relief it's been to not work nights for a season!
I've also started writing a memoir, at the encouragement of a journalist fan who was touched by my mental health disclosure in our May newsletter. The book is about my reluctant acceptance of a bipolar disorder diagnosis while touring the world and raising a family. So if there's anything you'd like to know about the reality of living with a mood disorder or a behind-the-scenes peek into the life of the family band, now's your chance to ask and maybe it'll show up in the pages of the book!
