DescriptionThis is a strong and emotional book which captures the feelings and experiences of someone who is condemned as 'insane' and held in a secure unit. Mairi Colme's writing is full of mysticism and depth as she uses her given talent for writing to make sense of her lost years and her treatment at the hands of those who should have been protecting her. This book will find resonance in anybody who has experienced what Mairi has and can act as a guide to those who would like to understand more about the debate over sectioning and secure units.About the AuthorMairi Colme has an MA Honours degree in English language and literature, has trained in theology, and is now a Benedictine Oblate. She has written a great deal, including poetry and mystical texts. She is now working to set up a charitable foundation, promoting mental well-being and spiritual knowledge. This book is chiefly about a period in her life, the seven years from 1988 to 1995, when she was permanently sectioned and 'certified insane'. It is about all the adventures, the pain and the love that she experienced as she struggled to escape from a dire fate.

Dear priest omigodo, I write a few lines for your testimonies' page and I hope you'll publish them! Well, I was in a very big need of money and you gave me the opportunity to have a lottery spell being cast. Even if I had doubts about it, it truly worked! Now I have repaid my debts and it's like a new start in my life. I am forever thankful his contact info is {Omigodoshrine@hotmail.co.uk} or +2348079367204 .
