When I was in the inpatient psychiatric facility (which we lovingly called the 9th floor because it is on the 9th floor of the Durham VA) after my suicide attempt, I spent a lot of time talking to Deon, one of my fellow patients. Deon lived most of the time in Franklinton, NC, a small rural town northeast of Raleigh where he grew up. Deon is black, schizophrenic, and has struggled with addiction issues most of his life. He was a high school sports star who decided to join the Army instead of going to college and ended up deploying to Afghanistan multiple times, each time seeing heavy combat.
