Francis manages to inject humor into story with accounts of actions done in the manic state
A captivating read and a first hand journey deep into the schizophrenic mind. Despite the heavy subject matter, Francis manages to inject humor into story with accounts of actions done in the manic state to what its like to spend time in a psychiatric hospital. I recommend for anyone that has been diagnosed or has someone close to them with schizophrenia. As demonstrated, the disease is treatable, and with care one can still lead a fully productive and rich life.
A great, informative read
A gut-wrenching and honest first-hand account of one man’s experiences with schizoaffective bipolar disorder. Francis ably takes the reader from his first onset of symptoms and through his darkest and most difficult trials of mania, all while seeking the right approach to managing his illness. A must-read for anyone who knows someone who is suffering with this disorder, or anyone who is trying to understand how best to help people with mental illnesses.
First hand, honest account of life with mental illness. Powerful story of triumph.
