This Psychosis increased and Denny experienced a massive psychotic breakdown, going through intense periods of psychotic depression and general Schizophrenia. He was sectioned in 2001 for four months and was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia after his second stay in the local psychiatric asylum which happened to be exactly a year later in 2002. Denny continued to struggle with his condition with another stay in 2004, and then was given a dual diagnosis of Paranoid Schizophrenia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

With the encouragement of local writers, he has focused much on writing poetry to express him self and aid recovery. This book is a collection of his poems throughout the last ten years of his life.
