Jamie enjoys fishing, camping, attending church with her family, counseling, school, and writing.
It is Jamie’s passion to assist those struggling with mental health issues of any kind. She has overcome her own diagnosed bipolar I disorder with psychosis through hard work, favor, and strength from her God, along with the support from her loving family. Despite her mental illness, Jamie earned two master’s l degrees from Walden University and is currently under supervision to become a licensed professional counselor in the state of Louisiana.
Jamie wrote this book to empower those who are struggling with “invisible illnesses” such as bipolar, to know that there is life after a mental illness diagnosis. It can be the platform to propel yourself—through hard work, perseverance, and Godly courage—to become all God has designed you to be.

“Lucrecia is an eye opening, heart-wrenching true story of a very strong and faithful woman whose decision-making process was not always the best. The first part of her life was challenging since she was in total denial of her mental illness and it continued until she was successfully diagnosed with a treatable mental illness. She is now able to help others by sharing her experiences. I am so privileged to have been able to read this story and to have learned some things about myself from her experience. I recommend this book to be read by all and especially those that may struggle with day-to-day life issues.”

“This book was very good. It inspired me and gave me a different outlook on people that deal with bipolar. The book is very encouraging that someone dealing with a mental illness can pull themselves out of it and live a stable life.”
