If we all spend a little time with it, and work to transform the way the public greets it, the world would be a better place!

Welcome to Working through Psychosis

I may have attained a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology, but as a writer I am unattached to highbrow connections, unschooled, meticulous, independent, yet raw. I do not like using citations or research to distort the reach of my work. I am the male anorexic straight outta Camden, the whistle-blower for the Seattle Housing Coalition, the paranoid schizophrenic of the Montana State Hospital Chronic Unit, the job-hunting, homeless drifter in Fresno, the paranoid servant peppering the olive oil at an Italian delicatessen, and the psychotherapist from the backward in Oakland. And I am never going back to the private Quaker Prep School where I was raised. I am here to revolutionize the way you meet and greet psychosis. I want to expand and improve the way psychotherapists and supporters aid the sufferer.

“[Clyde’s] story is fascinating because he is able to intellectualize what he was thinking and feeling at the time, even if he is discussing his paranoid delusional thoughts . . . As someone with a Master’s of Science degree in a counseling field, I have found my greatest lessons have been from real people and not material in textbooks. As I read Clyde’s story, I felt like I learned many lessons through what he has to share. My work will definitely be more beneficial by what I learned from him.”

Paige Lovitt, Readers Views, five stars

“An intensely personal and impressively well written memoir, “Fighting for Freedom in America: Memoir of a ‘Schizophrenia’ and Mainstream Cultural Delusions” is a compelling read from beginning to end.”

Midwest Book Review, five stars

The Hearing Voices Network training that I attended in the end of January turned out to be a time for self-reflection and personal growth. I experienced a mixture of validation and a profound sense of alienation. One of the trainers, Marty, sensed this in me and asked me to reach out after the training was … Continue reading Reflections on a Hearing Voices Network Training

Reflections of a Bachelor

It offered stillness To a world That was so active Twirling tearfully Like numb-chucking Buzzards overwhelming Peripheral horizons; Its peace prevailed In the dim after hours: Dish rack in disciplined order, scant suds Loitering around the drain, counter Clear except for an occasional dish rag Somehow charismatic in its grunge.   A few hours earlier … Continue reading Reflections of a Bachelor

Using Writer’s Block to Sharpen my Writing Platform

Since I started writing my memoir ten years ago, I have not struggled with writer’s block. It’s true, I have produced drafts of my second book that were so bad, I scrapped them. But I was always able to use writing to help organize my thoughts without feeling defeated. Sure, I have taken a few … Continue reading Using Writer’s Block to Sharpen my Writing Platform

A Glimpse Behind the Iron Curtain of the Mental Health System

Twenty years ago, I experienced what might be termed a break from reality while I was working as a mental health worker. I worked in a last resort section 8 housing project that was rife with crime. It was called “The Hotel of Horrors” in an article in the local media. For six months, I … Continue reading A Glimpse Behind the Iron Curtain of the Mental Health System
