Lee Ann Jefferies … has been living with a psychotic form of Bipolar Disorder since being diagnosed in her early twenty’s. Living in Birmingham, Ala., she was treated by a very prominent Psychiatrist. He only took on the most challenging, and complex patients.

Lee Ann was hospitalized, had electric shock therapy, powerful cocktails of anti-psychotic drugs, anti-depressants, and lithium, in an attempt to control her symptoms. With little on no progress made, her prognosis was grim.

The doctor told her husband things did not look good, and that she may need to be institutionalized.
