The Ritual is a story of sadness and of strife, written by a woman who struggled with an illness that kept her in mental institutions for much of her adult life. While awaiting insulin shock therapy at Creedmore Hospital, Judy Radi kept a secret journal of her experience. At times, she seemed out of place among the patients, as she was "not the sickest of the sick." but her private journal gives testament to her battle with the demons that occupied her mind and tore her away from her family. Through the pages of The Ritual, Judy Radi shares her most intimate feelings and guides the reader on a journey of survival and self discovery.
