Delusions of Grandeur Apr 14, 2015
My name is Matthew D. Ryan. I’m a writer. A few years back I had a psychological meltdown that convinced me that I am the antichrist. The current diagnosis is schizoaffective disorder. This book is the story of my struggle with schizoaffective disorder and the delusional belief system that has grown up about it. It is informed by a number of disciplines ranging from philosophy to the occult, and from religion to prophecy. I even throw in a few references to Quantum Mechanics. So, the book promises to be an enjoyable read for the serious psychology student, the inspired religious, prophecy buffs, and, of course, others suffering from mental illness who might be looking to commiserate. I invite you, intrepid reader, to download this book for your perusal, but be warned: this is a true story and it is not for the faint of heart.
