SWINGS, A volume of poetry, by Camilla Curran
To most people on the outside looking in, it appears that Camilla is the girl who has it all. What they don't see, is her struggle with a debilitating mental illness over the last ten years. From facing depressed lows so extreme that in-patient hospitalization as a result of suicidal behavior was needed, to mania so frighteningly fast paced that she married a man after knowing him only three months and divorced two years later, Camilla's bipolar renders her life anything but easy or by the book, which is why she chose to write one.
