10 of 15
Maurice's wife, Paula, says it has taken an enormous amount of patience and support to help her husband stay healthy. "There's a lot of ups and downs," Paula says. "And I just look at it like any other disease that, you know, you have to deal with. And that's the only way it helps me to get through it."

Maurice says he has been taking medication for 15 years and will continue to do so. "I flirt with not taking it—but I'm not stupid, because every time I've gone off the medication, I've had a breakdown," Maurice says.
