In it I describe my childhood briefly, my teen years and then acceptance to medical school where my condition onset began. I talk about hitchhiking to San Francisco and then down to Tijuana from Michigan with only a dollar and some change. I believed a horse was waiting for me in Tijuana to ride to South America. Following hitchhiking I describe my being arrested and my experience with the psychiatric and corrections department in Detroit. The last third or so of the book describes my realizing I was ill, moving to California and then returning to Michigan where I earned a masters in nutrition and worked with others to develop a free clinic. Travels to Europe, South Africa and Honduras are also included and the book ends with my meeting my wife who I married last year and the baby we are expecting.
