Customer Review

on November 3, 2011
Carolyn writes with sensitivity, confidence, sincerity, and great perceptiveness. She acknowledges the problems of disclosure because of stigma and ignorance but also the value in openness to help others. She skillfully explores schizo-affective disorder from the point of view of the mental health consumer, therapist, and society -- the inside and the outside. There are many layers in her writing which intertwine thoughts, emotions, experiences, maturity, and acceptance.

I agree with her belief that mental illness needn't block one from education, paid work, volunteering or creating purpose in life. Carolyn recognizes the individuality of people with mental illness and the importance of hope and empathy. I admire her ability to rise above adversity and excel in so many ways.

Sandra Yuen MacKay, author of My Schizophrenic Life
