Welcome Silence My Triumph Over Schizophrenia by Carol S. North, M.D.- A Great Read

Welcome Silence is a phenonmenal reading about an incredible woman. The author, Carol North, gives a fascinating description of what it is like to live with schizophrenia. She is incredible because in spite of her disease she manages to get through college and medical school.

I like the book because I can relate to the author. For example, North stresses that people can read her mind, I , too, have experienced this and wouldn't talk to people, because I felt that it wasn't necessary. Like North, I was catatonic and would stay in the same position for hours. After I got out of the catatonic stage doctors worried that I would go back into a catatonic state if they changed my medication as I had insisted with abilify. However, I was able to change my medication as I requested to abilify.

This book is an inspiration that I can complete college and live a productive life despite my illness. In addition, I would like to write a book about my experience. I strongly recommend Welcome Silence to people who want to learn more about the illness, and people living with schizophrenia. Therefore, check out Welcome Silence My Triumph Over Schizophrenia.

Thanks for the comment
Im not sure how else to comment you so i'll post it here.
Grasshopper is quite a character! sometimes he's independent and jumping on other things, other times he's craving attention and does anything to get it.
Would you mind pressing on the ads on my page a couple times? I get a small amount of money from it, and i will be getting grasshopper fixed so he can have a girlfriend. Thanks!
