Brought back to life.
I often tell the story of how 'I was brought back to life' 4 years ago. I was on a medication that didn't lend itself well to arts practice. In fact, I was totally under the cosh as they say. Anyway, after the Doctor I was seeing took early retirement. I met with a new Doctor who said to me ''James, we can do so much more for you.'' I was given a different medication and remarkably - My creativity came back; as good, if not better than it was at Art College. I came back to life! My life had no meaning previously, as I was out of it for 12 years or so. I still have struggles living my condition, but have my arts practice. The Robin Williams film 'Awakenings' tells of something similar. I was literally - Brought back to life!
