Publisher's Summary

This chilling, shocking, interesting, and intriguing true story takes you deep into the mind of the author who suffers from several severe mental illnesses.

The author describes in detail all the insanity, disturbing behaviors, oppressive symptoms, and various feeling associated with the mental battles within her own mind. The author suffers from clinical depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and borderline personality disorder. She struggles with suicidal thoughts and attempts, self-mutilating behaviors, mania, paranoia, anxiety, and psychosis with intense hallucinations of all five of her senses, and multiple delusions, including the belief that she is the "second-coming of Christ".

Take this journey with the author as her life takes rapid turns for the very worst.... But after years of being extremely mentally unstable, she acquires the courage, strength, hope, and faith she needs to understand, accept, and live with her illnesses. Only then is she able to turn her once miserable and fearful life around. This book offers hope and inspiration to others as it proves that recovery from mental illness is possible. "Having a mental illness is like a roller coaster ride. You don't jump off while it's still moving. You have to continue to ride until it comes to a complete stop and you can get off safely".

Amazing delivery, Content lacking

The silvery voice of the narrator wrapped me up like a cashmere blanket and made everything right with the world. The story was heart warming and captivating.

open memoir on mental illness

Allen tells her wild story of severe delusions to the point she was hospitalized multiple times. Some of these delusions are heartbreaking because she just can't seem to escape them. From her seemingly normal upbringing to adulthood, Allen never felt comfortable. she struggled with her sexuality and when she would often have nightmares about being raped by invisible men.
