Whispers: Behind the Eyes and Mind of a Schizophrenic is a true story. This is my story of what it's like living with schizophrenia. Since I was a young girl, I experienced a lot of unexplained abnormal activities. As I got older, my symptoms got worse, and I was in and out of hospitals. Over the past six years, I've learned to deal with my illness. I can now pass along some of my daily life experiences that will give others a better understanding of this far-reaching mental illness. The information in the book explains what you or a loved one are living through and how you can survive. There's no longer a need to hear the Whispers behind your back. Here are the facts from someone who's been there! Ever since I was a little girl, I've had abnormal activities happen to me that I could not explain. I was in a battle within myself. At one point I thought that I was seeing the devil and he would not leave me alone. I was tormented. This was a hard secret to keep. If I would have told someone the truth, they either would not believe me or would think that I was crazy. Until now I kept my secret of hearing voices and seeing apparitions to myself. I dealt with my illness by myself. I had no one by my side to help me through my hard times and that was a real challenge. I was twenty-seven when I had the episode that would change who I was, now and forever. I finally got so sick that I ended up in a hospital and that's when I first told about how my life has been. I was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, bipolar, social anxiety disorder, depression, and multiple personality disorder. I believe that my struggles and sacrifices throughout my life and teaching myself how to handle uncomfortable situations has made me a stronger person and gave me the courage to be able to tell my story to everyone. My goal is to help people learn the signs of this disorder and know how to help loved ones in their time of need. I hope that my life story is influential and inspirational to others and I hope that people find this book helpful in some way.
