Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: December 1999 and most people world wide were looking forward to the Millennium rollover into the year 2000. I was a normal, married with kids, middle aged standard South African guy with all my dreams for 2000 about to happen, when one doctor shattered everything with the statement, “Did no one tell you that you have cancer”. The “Radiation Raver” is a name that was given to me by a very good friend, after I survived 42 days of extreme radiation treatment for Stage Four Head and Neck cancer. “Today I had the bottom row of teeth extracted and false teeth fitted.” “The noise coming from the linear accelerator was similar to that of a frustrated bee stuck in a bottle. The problem was that I was inside the linear accelerator.” “This machine that they put you in is quite something else. Large and creepy. All alone in the middle of the room. One way windows all around. No bright lights, just the glow from the machine.” The story that follows is a documented journey of survival, from diagnosis through the surgeries and complications,to the point where we are today, many years later. This is my way of sharing my experience of cancer with the world. “Nobody ever ruined their eyes by looking on the bright side of things.” Enjoy.

Summary Book Review Poets on Prozac by Richard M. Berlin:
Download or read book Poets on Prozac written by Richard M. Berlin and published by Johns Hopkins University Press+ORM. This book was released on 2008-04-30 with total page 242 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this collection of 16 essays, poets discuss psychiatric treatment and their work. Poets on Prozac shatters the notion that madness fuels creativity by giving voice to contemporary poets who have battled myriad psychiatric disorders, including depression, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and substance abuse. The sixteen essays collected here address many provocative questions: Does emotional distress inspire great work? Is artistry enhanced or diminished by mental illness? What effect does substance abuse have on esthetic vision? Do psychoactive medications impinge on ingenuity? Can treatment enhance inherent talents, or does relieving emotional pain shut off the creative process? Featuring examples of each contributor’s poetry before, during, and after treatment, this original and thoughtful collection finally puts to rest the idea that a tortured soul is one’s finest muse. Honorable Mention, 2008 PROSE Award for Best Book in Psychology. “A fascinating collection of 16 essays, as insightful as they are compulsively readable. Each is honest and sharply written, covering a range of issues (depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, psychosis, substance abuse or, in acutely deadpan Andrew Hudgins’s case, “tics, twitches, allergies, tooth-grinding, acid reflux, migraines . . . and shingles”) along with treatment methods, incorporating personal anecdotes and excerpts from poems and journals. . . . Anyone affected by mental illness or intrigued by the question of its role in the arts should find this volume absorbing.” —Publishers Weekly “Berlin has done a marvelous job of showing us how ordinary poets are; the selected poets have shown us that mental illness shares with other experiences a capacity to reveal our humanity.” —Metapsychology

Download or read book Legacy written by Winston Hardegree and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2007-11 with total page 228 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Winston Hardegree was born in the throes of the Great Depression in 1932, but spent happy boyhood summers on his grandparents' rural Alabama farm, where hard work and adventure led to a deep appreciation for life's simple pleasures. At nineteen, Winston lost his father and suddenly became family patriarch for his mother, siblings, and new bride. He took a job in the local textile mill, and over thirty-five years of unrelenting hard work became a successful top-executive of this international company. Disenchanted, Winston decided to return to the simpler way of life he had so loved as a boy. Winston's quest to reintroduce the man he had become to the boy of his youth brought about these stories of gardening, life with regular folk and beloved animals, and adventures that Winston and his wife, Beth, shared in the garden, in love, and in living the autumn and winter of his years at The Blessed Earth Farm in the rural upstate of South Carolina. This book is a compilation of essays and short stories written during Winston's search for simplicity, and his observations on life and on death, as he faces the final days of a terminal illness. This is Winston Hardegree's Legacy.
