After Schizophrenia , by Margaret Hawkins
The Story of my sisters reawakening after 30 years
By Margaret Hawkins
This is an unflinching account of a family’s struggle to care for a schizophrenic adult child. Barb who languished for 30 years as a homebound invalid. Once her parents died the author and her brother were tenacious and determined to try to find help and improve the state of their now 63- year- old sister’s life. It is a heart warming story of a family’s struggle to come terms with severe mental illness and find hope and love on the other side.
What it shows us, once again, is that most of what we think we know about mental illness is just plain wrong
