These works illustrate the difference between the view commonly
promoted by the gutter press and the personal reality for me. They
show that violence can be absent from a sufferer's behaviour while
thoughts promoting love, harmony, truth and peace are evident,
leading to positive activities appreciated by those lucky enough to
witness and benefit from them. A sense of humour is shown to be of
paramount importance, which, together with good- humour and
forgiveness, blesses everyone.
It needs to be said that the stories are somewhat poetic and
require concentration. They need to be imbibed slowly and
thoughtfully, like an old whisky. But, unlike liquor, after
spending some time on them one may become enlightened rather than
About the Author
I was born in Hampshire in summer 1951 to dysfunctional parents.
My maternal grandmother thought in 1930 that she wanted her
recently deceased son to have died as she didn't realize that she
could want him to have not died. My mother copied her and later
married my father who had issues over his own mother's death that
happened when he was 11 years old. My dead uncle's existence was
kept a secret from me until 1998, in addition my paternal
grandmother was never talked about until then briefly.
In the 1950's sensing that my maternal grandmother and mother
thought they wanted someone to have died, I was afraid it was me
that was the subject of these thoughts and, scared of being killed,
decided I'd commit suicide as at least then I'd have control of the
time, place and particular cause of my death. I deteriorated from
there until 1978 when I exhibited paranoid behaviour and first
entered a psychiatric hospital, as I came to blame my parents for
real crimes committed in the '60's and '70's, that they were
Being placed on Redeptin depot injection, I've continued on a
depot injection ever since though, for the past 24 years it has
been Modecate medication. I have undergone person-centred
counselling for 13 years and, since the family secrets were
divulged in October 1998, have more rapidly, under the
circumstances, recovered to the extent were my medication is being
reduced in amount, at the moment being 12.5mg. of Modecate
fortnightly and diminishing.
The form this recovery has taken has been implicit in replacing
old, contemporaneous, explanations for historic and current
phenomena taking place with more correct, accurate and truthful
reasoning, based upon established facts.
Motivation was stimulated by the very unpleasant symptoms of
schizophrenia which I wanted to end. I harnessed this motivation
with a personal philosophy which I created, a sort of "moral code"
to live by. This, together with a belief in forgiveness, led to
activities e.g. working in a " halfway house" for the past 14 years
and pursuing Karaoke singing and also writing, which increase my
self-esteem and therefore my strength to recover.
