THINK ABOUT IT #16: Dorothy Rowe

The different experiences which psychiatrists call mental illness or mental disorder begin with an overwhelming fear and a feeling that your very self is shattering, even disappearing.  This happens when you discover that there is a serious discrepancy between what you thought your life was and what it actually is.  Mental illnesses are not illnesses but defences to hold the person together when he feels that he is falling apart.  These desperate defences are terrible to endure but, if we are willing to learn, they can teach us that we need to change the way we live our life.  It isn't always easy to change how we see ourselves and our world but, as the testimonies of many people show, it is in our power to do so.
