Writing is a Form of Schizophrenia
Author writes in memory of younger brother who struggled with illness.
“I hope to inspire others to continually express their love and support for their beloved, friends, and colleagues who are affected by mental illness,”
Dr. Rosalie H. Contino shares her story of familial obligation and love in her book, As Life Goes On: Lessons One Doesn’t Want to Have to Learn.
Robert “Bob” Contino was diagnosed with mild schizophrenia and was old enough to retire from work. Rosalie had to sacrifice some of her dreams and devote her time to taking care of her brother, but the illness had complications. She writes this memoir to commemorate Bob’s life and death.
“I hope to inspire others to continually express their love and support for their beloved, friends, and colleagues who are affected by mental illness,” the author says. It is her deepest intention to make people understand the effects of mental disorders.
As Life Goes On: Lessons One Doesn’t Want to Have to Learn reminds people to be more appreciative of life. Not everyone has the luxury of a sound mind, so it’s best we use it to help people who are struggling.
