Schizophrenia – The Last Taboo

by David Stewart (Author)

Explore Schizophrenia's depths; a journey from delusion to poignant reality.

Book Description:​

This book is a biography and also a bit of a ‘Walter Mitty meets science fiction’ story. It will give you an insight into schizophrenia, how it can affect you, and how the symptoms can appear many years before a diagnosis. Delusions can be a giveaway, hence the Walter Mitty reference.
Most people think of schizophrenia as people with multiple personalities and a propensity to axe murder. This is very rare, most schizophrenics are terrified of the world around them and would not hurt a fly.
Schizophrenic delusions come in a number of forms: paranoid delusions, where you believe someone or something is out to get you; conspiracy delusions, where you believe you are involved in a plot involving the Secret Service especially the CIA; memory delusions, where you believe you have been places or have done things that you could not possibly have done; people delusions, where you believe you have met famous people and also people who do not even exist; and creative delusions. In my case, all these have been evident in my life in very complex ways.
I know that some of what I believe to be true in the cold hard light of day is in fact fantasy or ‘episodic’ delusions. But these memories make me who I am. Some of the stories are fond memories; others are recollections of hell. The hell part is what makes me hang on to my belief that the better stories are true.
I leave it to you, the reader, to decide for yourself what is true and what is not. But bear in mind, sometimes the truth can be more unbelievable than fiction.
