Description Somehow Aiden's world doesn't make sense any more. His neighbour keeps playing Duran Duran so he can't think. Fellow students comment on his frenzied dancing style at the Mega disco and he wonders whether all his life he has been too serious. Worst of all he can't stop thinking a petite freckled brunette called Janice. Perhap's if he could make it with her then, then... everything would be solved. Take the white knuckle ride of Aiden through the highs and lows of student life at Lanchester University through the frustration and devastation of mental illness, through therapy into a whole new unexpected world. This semi -autobiographical account of student life and its aftermath will challenge you about what is and what is not possible. Believe the unbelievable. About the Author Philip Hill was born in Birmingham in 1965 to a mother called Iris who had been in the mental health system for quite a while when she gave birth to him and his twin brother. Under the children's legislation of the time she was seen as an unfit mother because she was diagnosed schizophrenia and not only was she separated from all her four children, she was discouraged from any contact with them. Iris's sister had a half sister Doris whose daughter Jessica and her husband Albert took him and his twin brother into care. Before being taken into Jessica's and Albert's care Philip and his brother languished in a children's home during which they were neglected. By the time they had reached five they were behind in most of the psychological and emotional developmental milestones. Philip went to a special school till the age of nine and could not read properly till 10 years of age. Despite the early disadvantage Philip developed to a high academic level and went on to study at Leicester University where he was to experience the first of his two nervous breakdowns. Philip was determined to give back to the mental health system that had supported him and worked as a support worker for Rethink for eleven years as a care officer, Senior Care officer and part time support worker. Going back into higher education in 1996, Philip attained a taught masters degree, a research masters degree (MPhil) and a Postgraduate Diploma/DipSW in Social Work. He currently works as a professional social worker with adults with learning disabilities in the west midlands and has written an autobiography entitled 'Living Out of the Book' (2008) also published by Chipmunka publishing.
