My father was Asperger like myself. My mother was schizogenic. Not schizophrenic but schizogenic: A refrigerator mother totally impervious to the needs of her children. Never once in her life did she kiss or hug any of us, and we were raised by the maids. To be fair with her, she did take an interest in us when we were sick. I remember that being sick was like visiting Disneyland.

My brother is schizophrenic and he has spent several years of his life in the loony bin. All my seven sisters are downright crazy. Even if they do not hear voices or see hallucinations, there is something very wrong with all of them. One of them reads the bible 24/7 and speaks "in languages". A couple of them appear on the surface to be OK, but have done things throughout their lives that defy understanding. One let her children hang out with a well known homosexual pedophile, and even wanted to marry him. Another induces her two daughters toward promiscuity. Her younger daughter already has herpes and who knows what else.

Another thing I have to point out is that although all my sisters are downright crazy, none of them is schizogenic. None of them was impervious toward their children, and none of their children ever went crazy. But one of my nieces, the daughter of my bible reader sister, is conspicuously impervious toward her children, and one of her sons is quite weird. I would not be surprised if he goes nuts when he grows up. It fits the pattern.

The shrink I had the misfortune to know, the only thing that interested him was squeezing as much money as possible from his patients with endless sessions of "therapy", and seducing his female patients. One of my sisters fell for him, and she still considers him the love of her life. (I don't believe her late husband ever got wind of this).

This product is way out of date ... I never realised that it was written in the sixties and irrelevant to today's findings on schizophrenia. The print is very small and old fashioned and it is very repetitive. Didn't get a lot out of it. I will probably put it in the bin! Cost a lot for such an old book. Not worth it, I didn't think.
