“The book allows readers to view mental disorders from a more understanding perspective. Bob was quite a character. There were times I wanted to give up completely, but I learned to appreciate him in a way I never had,”

Mental illness has been stigmatized for a long time now. In Rosalie Contino’s new book, As Life Goes On: Lessons One Doesn’t Want to Have to Learn, the author reveals a true story of how a so-called stigma rewarded precious memories in return.

Bob was suffering from schizophrenia. And with deceased parents, Bob had no loved ones to care for him in a way a family member would. So Rosalie, having made a firm promise, looked after Bob with loving concern in his last months. Their experiences—tales of impatience, humor, love, and a lifetime’s worth of lessons—are treasures Rosalie keeps.

“The book allows readers to view mental disorders from a more understanding perspective.  Bob was quite a character. There were times I wanted to give up completely, but I learned to appreciate him in a way I never had,” stated the author.
With words that will move readers to laughter and tears, this book is a gem.
