Sample Chapter

Sometimes Lisa shouted at her seven-year-old daughter, Nancy.  When this happened, Nancy cried a lot. Lisa then had to calm Nancy down and stop her from crying.

Lisa also got very, very happy sometimes, so much that she talked really fast.  Lisa had difficulty sleeping and could not think straight.

Peter understood Lisa's problems because he got sad for no reason.  Peter was very, very sad that day and had become more sad when Lisa shouted at Nancy.  He grabbed Pit, said good-bye to Lisa, and headed home.

Peter let Pit in the house and took off his leash.  Peter turned on his TV set and watched the news.

Both Peter and Lisa had moods that caused their minds to become sick.
