9781849914314: The Grim Reaper: The Dark Side of Depression

Description

The 'Grim Reaper' is a story based partly on true events. However, all the characters and all the institutions mentioned are entirely imaginary and any resemblance to persons living or dead or actual events are purely coincidental. The reader will enter an unfolding tragedy about a loving couple who will experience the misery mental health problems can bring to a relationship and to families.

This is a chilling tale about the awful experiences of a middle-aged woman called Ruth and her husband, Robert. The 'Grim Reaper' of the title is the demonic and malevolent being who torments Ruth and tries to take her for his own by getting her to kill herself. Robert - her life-long love- and to a lesser extent, her son, Sean, try to help her overcome her problems.

The story poses many as yet unanswered questions. Can external forces of evil beyond our control affect and impact on our lives? Is it right that in the present day under the UK's mental health act, patients can lose all their legal rights and all their human rights? Is it right that the forced administering of psychotropic drugs (known as the 'chemical cosh) is still going on in the UK's mental hospitals and that this remains a closely guarded and very dark secret?
