To Cry a Dry Tear:

Bill MacPhee’s Journey of Hope and Recovery With Schizophrenia, reveals the truth about living with a mental illness.

Being diagnosed with a mental illness doesn’t mean you can’t live a full, happy, and successful life. It means you have to live a full, happy, and successful life that takes your mental illness into account.

Bill’s childhood passion for swimming led him at the age of 19 to the South China Sea where he began a promising career as a commercial deep sea diver in Singapore,

The future looked bright for Bill, already living his dream before his 20th birthday.

Five years later, Bill was living a nightmare inside the walls of a psychiatric ward. He was trapped in a world of illusions, delusions, paranoia and depression thanks to schizophrenia.

He was taken to hospital six times and lived in three different group homes as a result. At one point he tried to end his life, feeling helpless and hopeless because of the life he left behind and what seemed to be a bleak future ahead.

But Bill held on to hope. He came to terms with his mental illness and used it as a springboard to a life more rewarding and full than he ever could have imagined.

Now a recovery expert, Bill has helped thousands of people through his work and publications. His first book, to Cry a Dry Tear, gives you a clear, vivid understanding of schizophrenia and what goes on in the mind of someone experiencing a psychotic episode.

"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.”
