Twisting My Kaleidoscope

 
9781478755500: Twisting My Kaleidoscope

Shannon Love, a seemingly happy woman, through unforeseen circumstances, falls into a critical psychotic state, while living in Beijing, China. Enchanted by a voice in her head, she becomes suspicious of humanity--most of all Charles, her husband, believing he wishes her dead. Shannon's hallucination, along with relentless delusions, send her into a state of terror, landing her in a Chinese psychiatric hospital, as the only foreigner. Then, after sinking deeper into madness, she must be evacuated to the U.S. for intense treatment. Meanwhile, her husband, with his undying love, holds firm to his matrimonial vow "for better or for worse," and never gives up on his wife--even through the turmoil of a relapse. Shannon eventually returns to him as her sane self but concedes that she may have never broken free, if not for his eternal devotion.

Review:

"As a humanist and a therapist, I recommend this autobiography without reservations. Shannon has an amazing ability to write about her life, and her episodes of psychosis, with a clarity that is unseen in most books." -Aram Sohigian, MA, Google Books
  "In an absorbing narrative she recalls the memory of her days of storm-her days of clinical therapy...it is a journey of life for Love where she will[see] life from a different perspective-a new angle that will give her more strength to conquer her difficult days." -Jayasree, Jayasree's A New Dimension in Review

"A book ANYONE should read...Shannon's world living with her mental illness.  Mrs. Love does a great job explaining her psychosis, her thought patterns, and her treatments." -Niki's Book Review
"This book offers a critical analysis of the myth of mental illness, but also, more generally, the grammar of everyday life, of the world as it is and life in its articulation in roles based on the logic of closed identity ready to sacrifice other things, to expunge the other roles associated with sexual identity, membership, and functionality." -Kalyan Panja, Bootica  

"I recommend this book to anyone curious enough to see how people with psychosis and delusions look at and deal with life. To say it was an "eye opener" would be an understatement." -Leila Tualla, Leila Tualla Books
"Twisting My Kaleidoscope will draw you in. If not from a place of fear, then question. If not from fear or question, then sheer honesty and bravery." -Life Breath Present

"I was hooked through the whole book and often I identified (as someonewith Bipolar) with her story." -Kathleen, SMS Nonfiction Book Reviews
"In this book, the author opens up her soul and shares with the world her journey into psychosis and how it affected her family."-Argiletum

"An extraordinary and unique work by an extraordinary and unique author, Twisting My Kaleidoscope is very highly recommended for community and academic library collections." -MidwestBook Review
"She takes the reader inside her world, inside her mind as she documents every feeling, thought, frustration, good and bad day, clinical visits, the affect this illness has not only on her, but her family, friends,and brings the reader full circle as she reflects back on what her life has been like for the past two years living with psychosis, and ultimately where she sees her life later down the road." -Morgan Amos, Create.

Book Description Outskirts Press, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. A ticket into the world of psychosis. Our author carefully places you in an enchanted bubble, transiting you from one scene to the next. As you position yourself to view what best suits you, she unbars the door to her therapy sessions, uncovers the blanket of her thoughts, unlocks the key to her journal, and extends temporary access to her physical being. Imagine this impervious bubble, imprisoning you from the moment you choose to indulge-your desperate cries for release denied until an end is reached. Absolved from such a captivity, you can close the book when exhaustion hammers at your head and anxiety stabs your chest. This luxury evades the psychotic. Instead, she is forced to trek the turbulent terrain in its entirety. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781478755500
