One Word at a Time: A Writer's Spiritual Journey to Recovery

Kevin Coyle

Abstract

Ten years ago, back when I was 18, I planned to go to college and live a normal life as a deaf man. But the following year, I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. The psychotic world in my mind that seemed so real at times threatened to imprison me in a realm of delusions. My passion for words kept me motivated in class, but once I graduated from college I sank into a pit of despair. I wrote and slept, but struggled to produce anything. It was my boyhood dream to be a writer, but a writer cannot live on words alone.
