Pages: 215
Key Themes: diary, autobiographical, schizophrenia, mental health services, strength, resilience, achievement


This is the second volume of diaries by Fatma Durmush. It is a continuation of Nothing Sacred, Vol. One.

The life of a schizophrenic is often far from smooth, discrimination, ranging from casual encounters on the street, or while out shopping, extends as far as the structures and processes of the very organizations designed to give help and support to those with mental and physical disabilities.

Fatma Durmush shows what can be achieved by those, who in former times would have been vastly underrated by, and written out of, society, as irrelevant, and who, even now, have to continue to assert their hard won rights.
