In Search of My Husband's Mind
Winnie suspected her husband suffered from depression after a diagnosis of cancer forced the amputation of one of his legs. Doctors dismissed her concerns and continually refused to treat her husband in the manner she requested. Desperately trying to understand her husband's lack of enthusiasm for her, their family, or his career, and his obscene public outbursts, Winnie felt responsible and helpless. This is the powerful story of how she challenged the medical bureaucracy and unraveled the mystery of her husband's mind.
