A very insightful portrayal of mental illness from the patients perspective. Luckily, this author was surrounded, or came upon caring people, not many others are so fortunate. Ideal read, for people n the mental health industry; to perhaps objectify rigid opinions and beliefs that are unhelpful. Amazingly, patients try to ratilonalize absurd thoughts as truth. And, they do think, no matter if it appears they do not. Studies in neuroscience might be helpful in solving why synapses are so low on proteins.

This very bright young woman, who now works and researches at UBC, shares her struggles with severe schizophrenia. It took so long - about 8 years - before they finally found the right drugs in the right amount to control her symptoms. I am so glad she finally has "quietness" from her Voices and symptoms.

A moving account of a young woman living with schizophrenia. Thank you Ms. Hawkes for sharing the challenges and struggles of those we as a society often do not understand.

A revealing account from Erin Hawkes that promotes understanding of schizophrenia and the way it is dealt with. The book is a must read for all who want a first hand account of the thoughts, words, actions and challenges faced by a brave and inspiring young woman. Loved it, thank you Ms. Hawkes.
