I discovered a fascinating book, “Hidden Valley Road” by Robert Kolker. It is one of Oprah’s Book Club picks, which are on Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/oprahsbookclub/?hl=en
Out of a family of 12, there were 6 siblings who had schizophrenia. They lived on Hidden Valley Road in Colorado. As was the case with my mother, the severe symptoms and psychotic breaks occurred in their twenties.
There are still many mysteries surrounding this horrible illness; however, this book has opened some necessary doors.
It reads like a novel. Robert Kolker has done a wonderful job telling some horrific stories. I only wish he could tell mine.
For some reason, I feel I have found gold.
