To Schizophrenia and Back
'To Schizophrenia and Back' is Annie's extremely brave and personal story of her life with schizophrenia. This book covers all aspects of Annie's battle with schizophrenia, which she, rather unusually, tackles from all points of view - including from others with different perceptions of the problems she faces. Annie has adapted this book herself from the diaries she has kept through all her psychotic episodes. She has been detained many times under the Mental Health Act and at one time was told that she would never work again. But Annie has come through all this and the fact that she is now embarking on a new career is testament to the strength of her determination to beat her illness.
