This paper introduces, discusses, and analyzes the book, "The Quiet Room: A Journey Out of the Torment of Madness" by Lori Schiller and Amanda Bennett. Specifically, the paper addresses the aspects of mental illness the character suffers and answers specific questions regarding the reading.
From the Paper:"This book tells the true story of Lori Schiller, a patient ill with schizophrenia. She writes eloquently of how she felt during her illness, and what it has meant to her life. Her experiences include hearing what she calls "Voices," who are rarely gone from her mind. She writes, "Sometimes those Voices have been dormant. Sometimes they have been overwhelming. At times over the year they have nearly destroyed me. Many times over the years I was ready to give up, believing they had won" (Schiller and Bennett 7). It seems most mental patients have feelings of despair and depression over their illness, and have thoughts of ending their lives. Reading about her despair is difficult, but she is so descriptive in her discussion that it is easy to feel her pain and fear - giving an intense portrait of the difficulties associated with living with mental illness every day."
