TO CRY A DRY TEAR

Maybe you’ve been diagnosed with schizophrenia or another mental illness. Maybe you’re a parent or family member who wants to understand and support a loved one struggling to come to terms with what having a mental illness means. I wrote To Cry a Dry Tear, a book on living with schizophrenia, for people just like you.

"I'd recommend this book to anyone with a friend or family member who suffers with schizophrenia, bipolar, or severe depression. And it may be inspiration to those suffering from these difficult diseases. It is a tool for understanding, and hope for those who may think they're alone in a journey such as Bill's."

“Put aside anything else you’re reading. Get ready to ride Bill’s coattails while he spirals out of control, down the rabbit hole of paranoia and delusion to a place where he though he could reverse time itself. Bill MacPhee is one of the most brutally honest writers I’ve read. He simply doesn’t hold anything back. Describing himself marching naked on a highway in the middle of winter while shouting religious slogans (one of the lowest points in his life), is a scene I will not soon forget. If you or anyone else you know suffers from schizophrenia, you need to read this book.”

A Book On Living With Schizophrenia

Education. Understanding. Hope.

When I was diagnosed with schizophrenia more than 30 years ago, these words meant nothing to me. I didn’t want to know more about my mental illness. I couldn’t understand why it was happening to me. Everything seemed hopeless. I felt hopeless. Sound familiar?

Maybe you’ve been diagnosed with schizophrenia or another mental illness. Maybe you’re a parent or family member who wants to understand and support a loved one struggling to come to terms with what having a mental illness means. I wrote To Cry a Dry Tear for people just like you.

People who are navigating the tricky waters of mental illness and need to know there’s hope through education and understanding schizophrenia. There are plenty of things I still have to learn about the world and life, but how mental illness feels and affects families isn’t one of them.

Every Sunday at 9:00 p.m. EST, I go live to talk about mental illness and recovery. I’d love to see you there to join the conversation!

Mental Illness Isn’t Attractive, But It’s Real

In 1987, I arrived at Greater Niagara General Hospital in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, in the back of a police car. I was wearing nothing but a blanket the police had wrapped me in after finding me wandering the streets naked.

The start of my journey to mental wellness certainly wasn’t glamorous or attractive, but it’s real.

As someone who’s experienced a break from reality (more than once), I can think of no better person to tell you what mental illness can take from you—and what you can get back in return.

That’s why I wrote To Cry a Dry Tear; it’s not just my story about living with schizophrenia; it’s a resource you can use to help you through your own journey to mental wellness. You can read the first chapter for free here.

I’m also active on Facebook and use it almost every day to connect with people who have been touched by mental illness and are looking for a safe, supportive place to learn more about living with it. Join my free Facebook group, Helping Parents of Mentally Ill Children, and find support and friendship with others looking for education, understanding, and hope about mental illness. Every Sunday at 9:00 p.m. EST, I go live to talk about mental illness and recovery for helping parents with schizophrenia. I’d love to see you there to join the conversation!
