Introduction Hi, I'm a quirky creative, mental health advocate, traveller, wild west & ghost nut intrigued by science, a renaissance soul with a potty sense of humour. Five years ago I began a miraculous journey to full recovery from 30 years of depression. The catalyst was a medication crisis. A brilliant mental health team prescribed a medication, California Rocket Fuel (love it!) & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Now I'm better than I've ever been & I'm rebuilding my eclectic, adventurous creativity & life.  I'm sharing my experiences to give other sufferers of depression hope. Depression is one of the most easily treated of mental health issues, if the right help can be found, which isn't easy.  I'm also aspiring to be a role model for the over-60s, because I hate ageism, & to live a life less ordinary. My blog is great for my creativity - an epic novel (Alias Jeannie Delaney -  the life story of a devastating cowgirl who's the fastest gun in the west & bisexual), anecdotal articles - & art. I'm endeavouring to make Creating My Odyssey chatty, conversational, but sometimes I'll write a more formal article. I hope it's enjoyable.  Thank you for reading! Jo, Hampshire UK
