This is the memoir by a young girl who first experiences the delusions and hallucinations of schizophrenia in her late teens. In spite of her loving psychiatrist father's and psychologist mother's attempts to help her, she spent the next half of her life in and out (mostly in) various institutions. Her condition did not respond well to any of the drugs available, it was not until her early 30's when a new drug came on the market that she began to experience a normal life again. She then had to grapple with the realization that half her life had been spent in a haze, having missed out on all the experiences that young people take for granted : proms, college , romances, parties, friends, a career. This is a heartbreaking story, written from the inside, about Lori's struggle with, and ultimately her triumph over schizophrenia. Very well written, hard to put down, a must read, especially for anyone who has a friend or family member with this disorder.
