A Man’s Journey to Hurdling a Deep-seated Problem
Michael Fortnam writes his memoir that describes how he overcame his mental illness.
“The paralysis of depression encompassed my very core. Its silent brutality lay hidden from view…It is so difficult to describe, both now, years into recovery, and also while in the depths of its curse,”
It takes courage to translate into writing one’s struggle with mental illness, and the stresses that come with it. Michael Fortnam has released his autobiography that recounts his falling into the dark ebb of mental disorder.
In Distorted Mind, Michael shares his feelings of isolation and emptiness when he went through severe depression, delusions, and mania. “The paralysis of depression encompassed my very core. Its silent brutality lay hidden from view…It is so difficult to describe, both now, years into recovery, and also while in the depths of its curse,” he says.
It was when he was brought for a long confinement in a psychiatric hospital that he realized that his thoughts were merely hallucinations. Michael describes in this book how therapy and medication have allowed him to conquer his mental illness and face the future full of promise and hope.
Written in sparse prose, this memoir makes readers empathize with the painful feelings of those who are suffering from a chronic mental problem.
