Greg Sturgill had been working as a nurse in Central Appalachia for 15 years
when he was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder in 2006.


Sturgill was treated and hospitalized more than once while doctors attempted
to balance his medication against pre-existing heart problems. He was
startled to learn that his father had also suffered from mental illness and
even received electroshock therapy, but had hidden his condition from his
children.
