Hope's Journey to Recovery from Schizophrenia.Hope’s Journey to Recovery from Schizophrenia. by Stacey Nyongesa

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I recently found out that a good friend of mine has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and seems to be getting worse. With little knowledge of this disorder, I didn’t feel I could be of much help. But meanwhile, I am willing to read what I can so that should the day arise, I might have some knowledge to speak with.

This was a good book to start with. Though the author is in Nairobi Kenya, her story reflects what it must be like for anyone anywhere with this mental issue hanging over them.

I must admit that a decade ago I had a breakdown and was diagnosed with depression. The doctor was very strong about my getting disability insurance and so sent me to his personal lawyer to get that started. Since then I have had a unique drive to learn more about the brain and it’s disorders. I’ve taken psychology classes and try to read a lot. Of course, the disorder I have read most about is depression and its close relative the bipolar diagnosis.

Thank you, Stacey Nyongesa for sharing your story. May you continue in good health.
