Me :-)  


I am an author who was, for a considerable stretch of my life, clinically diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic, was being the key word in this sentence. Not even the medical model of modern psychiatry is willing to tie me down to that label now. What my current diagnosis happens to be is irrelevant, as I do not subscribe to the medical model. I believe the type of mental illness I have endured so far has been more spiritual than chemical in nature. Although medications have played their role in the treatment of my illness, they have not been the solution. The solution has instead been the result of my sometimes outrageous life experiences, culminating in an integrated understanding of self and other that may best be attributed to guidance by spiritual forces. I have been blessed, and through my writing seek to bless others in turn.
