Then in every decade after, personally and in support of my 3 sons who also experienced "psychosis" after leaving home for university in the city (Lomond Ward, Stratheden, Fife 1995/6 and Liff Hospital, Dundee, 1999/2000). Finally the 2012 locked seclusion room human rights abuses in Stratheden psychiatric Hospital, Fife (youngest son), and 2012/3 Carseview Centre inpatient treatment (middle son). Nothing since, hopefully no more in the future. I've had more than enough.

I count myself very fortunate to have had a good Mother with a Schizophrenia diagnosis, an example to me of loyalty, fortitude, intelligence, and surviving psychiatric treatment. She lived on a Depixol injection 3wkly for over 20yrs until her peaceful death, 19 March 1998.

I plan to write a book about my Dad and our family, his scriptwriting of Jeff Hawke sci-fi comic strip for the Daily Express in Fleet St, London, from 1956-69. And to write science fiction stories, carrying on his legacy, weaving in the many life experiences over the years of engaging with psychiatry, exploring the themes he wrote about from my perspective as a survivor and child-bearer, a grandmother and woman of faith.
