If it hadn’t been for Winnie Churchill, I would be long dead.
If it hadn’t been for Abe Lincoln, the North American continent would have been a major place of intolerable and unending pain and suffering for many millions. Much worse than it is today, and for vastly different reasons.
We know that Lincoln’s bouts with severe depression were quite debilitating. I believe they were made worse by some common cure of the day… He finally stopped taking it when he realized it was making him worse.
