She was a teacher in Jamaica. My book that is about to be written was the first one that will be published. I came to America on the ninth of February 1969. I went to a mental hospital and I have mentioned it frequently in my book. Many people scorn people with a mental illness but my book gave hope and enrich people who are afflicted with mental illness. People look at mental illness as a stigma. In my book stigma is not a disease. People with mental illness can recover especially the younger people if they stay away from drugs and alcohol. A lot of great people's lives are touched with mental illness. If my book goes on the market it will encourage a lot of people who are afflicted with mental illness. Merle Williams is happier now for she is about to get a book published.
