In the Heart of Fear One Forgets One's Self
eBook (PDF), 56 Pages
Love, which is life’s greatest weapon, life’s greatest tool, inspired me to do the biggest thing I’ve ever done. I wrote this book as a token of appreciation for a sick friend who was more than just someone I loved. Either diabetes will take her or the efforts of the people who fight diabetes around the world will see fruition in time. Here is my contribution and best effort to see a cure happen. My name is Greg and I’ve been fighting my own war for years, only my enemy isn’t a person: it’s schizophrenia. During my first psychotic episode I undertook this project and I give you my thoughts, my paranoia, my insanity from my own perspective, with my own words. Join me in the heart of fear where I forgot who I was. (100% of my profits will be going to the Canadian Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)

Aug 26, 2009"Fantastic author" This author is fantastic, an amazing idea for a book which I fully support and am recommending to everyone I know. Great job!
Feb 27, 2009Greg is a remarkable young man who has fought so hard to keep his illness from becoming his reality. His book is not only extremely well written but comes deep from within his heart and will to help others from letting this illness take over their lives. It has been and continues to be a very long battle. Bravo to you Greg-I am so very proud and lucky to have you in my life. I marvel on how much I have learned through you. Each time I re-read your book, I discover something new. Keep on writing and inspiring others.
Jun 19, 2008"An important book about Schizophrenia" Many people are ill at ease discussing Schizophrenia or talking with someone who has this illness. Yet we all have or know of family or friends who have this illness. How much do we really know about their thought processes and what goes on in their minds? How are they able to cope with reality as it is being eroded by delusions or medication? My son has published a book about his experiences dealing with this debilitating condition. The book is called “In the Heart of Fear, One Forgets One's Self”. It is an insider’s look into his world and his relationship with delusions. The book is a hard read at times; it tugs at the heart. Poignant, informative, disturbing and hopeful, Greg writes about a psychotic episode at a specific time in his life where delusions are predominant and yet he still dreams of a better life in the future. He portrays himself in a highly vulnerable and personal way, taking the reader through a series of ordeals... More > and challenges that confronted him. The book is a major accomplishment. Rarely, does one have the opportunity to read about an illness of this nature which is discussed at such a deep and personal level. His poetry is particularly powerful. Reading the book one feels Greg’s pain as he recreates the delusions and emotions that went along with them. I am extremely proud of him and his effort.< Less
