Inheritance is an audiobook about secrets - secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is the story of a woman's urgent quest to unlock the story of her own identity, a story that has been scrupulously hidden from her for more than 50 years, years she had spent writing brilliantly, and compulsively, on themes of identity and family history.

Stacy Pershall grew up as an overly intelligent, depressed, deeply strange girl in Prairie Grove, Arkansas, population 1, From her days as a year-old Jesus freak through her eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder, this spirited memoir chronicles Pershall's journey through hell and her struggle with the mental health care system.

The family was suddenly uprooted to a cult school in Switzerland and, ultimately, to the Belgian Congo where their father became a surgeon in the war-ravaged republic, and ultimately the personal physician to President Mobutu. In , Barbara Lipska - a leading expert on the neuroscience of mental illness - was diagnosed with melanoma that had spread to her brain. Within months, her frontal lobe, the seat of cognition, began shutting down. She descended into madness, exhibiting dementia- and schizophrenia-like symptoms that terrified her family and coworkers.
But miraculously, the immunotherapy her doctors had prescribed worked quickly. Just eight weeks after her nightmare began, Lipska returned to normal. With one difference: she remembered her brush with madness with exquisite clarity. When Rick Van Warner found himself searching abandoned buildings and dangerous streets looking for his missing son, he had no idea that the synthetic, pill-form heroin that had snared his teen was already killing so many. In the years of pain and heartache that followed, as he tried to save his son from opioid addiction, Van Warner discovered what the American public is just now becoming aware of: Opioids prescribed for even minor pain relief are so addictive that even a few days of use can create dependency.

Recovery is not simply abstinence, but a process of growing up. I spent my entire life searching for the key to long-term sobriety. I would like to share with you what I have learned. Our narrator should be happy, shouldn't she? This is not the story she would tell. It is solely mine, solely the viewpoint of one man, solely a father's feelings about his daughter.

This is my second reading on mental illness. Robert Hines gave me what I was looking for, an intimate view into a family dealing with schizophrenia. As the reader I find I have no room to make judgements on this family. For the life of me, I can't imagine living with this disease! And I am a 35 yr veteran of nursing.

Based solely on his writings, I saw the Hines family as going above and beyond what many families would have or could have possibly tolerated. Sadly, I saw much evidence that Mr. Hines laid a lot of blame on himself. For example, he referred to a concept implying that unusually effective parenting can often minimize or fend off schizophrenia. I for one would love to see the research on that concept! At the very least there is a chance of that happening!
Mr Hines felt that the parent sees in any situation may likely be viewed by the child in a completely different light.. Well, that is true of virtually every childhood memory, regardless of mental illness.
I guess my hope is that Mr. Hines learns to cut himself a hugh break.
