The Memoir Is Available Now

It was quicker than I expected yet now my memoir Left of the Dial is available on Amazon and will be available elsewhere in about two months.  I expect to have a Kindle e-book version coming out shortly.  You can install a Kindle app on your iPad to download Kindle books to your iPad.

Here’s one review of the book:

“Christina Bruni’s Left of the Dial describes her struggles, achievements, determination and perseverance. Despite being diagnosed with schizophrenia, she weathers the storm, and fights her way through it, earning a masters degree, working full-time as a professional librarian, and becoming a writer and award-winning mental health advocate, using her experiences to aid others. From the outside looking in, her illness is hidden behind her makeup and clothes, but inside she battles with stigma and searches for recognition, love and acceptance. Her story is one of courage. I congratulate Bruni on what she’s accomplished in life and enjoyed her insights and triumphs sewn into her story.”

— Sandra Yuen MacKay, author of My Schizophrenic Life: The Road to Recovery from Mental Illness

Interestingly, my literary agent told me I had nothing to be ashamed of because the memoir was a story of resilience and persistence too. The goal for everyone living on earth is for each of us to not ever feel guilty or ashamed for being who we are and not to feel like we’re inadequate or lacking compared to others.  We must not believe the words of the people who hate and judge us for being different.

I’ve been in remission from schizophrenia for over 22 years.  It’s been decades since I didn’t want to viewed as crazy because I had schizophrenia.  I turn 50 in April and I don’t care what anyone thinks of me anymore.

That’s why I always tell readers in my blog to believe in yourselves when no one else does.  The only power the stigma has over you is the power you give it.

Again: You can buy the book on the Left of the Dial Amazon page right now.

Thank you dear treasured and faithful readers of my blogs for supporting me throughout the years.
