“Because of medication, people like me can’t concentrate enough on reading,” explains the 29-year-old author who recently moved to Épernon. “And since I’ve had so much positive feedback about the paper and digital versions, I wanted to give them access to my book via audio. »
When Python writes its first sentences to the notebook, it’s more like a journal:

“I was 17 years old when I heard the voice of a man who initially calmed and comforted me when I was in pain. Then he started ordering me things. To take a rope and go to the forest to hang myself. Then I realized it had gone too far. »

Python (schizophrenic)

Pythna was 19 years old at the time. She confides in her husband, who takes her to a psychiatrist.

She is silent for a long time

Hospitalization overtook her when she was 26 years old and she had just finished writing her autobiography. He instinctively sends his text to a publishing house, which immediately agrees to publish it. “But writing this book stirred things up in me and, at 26, I was hospitalized for two months in a psychiatric hospital. »

Delirious puffs

From this experience, she draws another book, Stay in a Psychiatric Hospital, published on October 23, self-published under the pseudonym Anna Roswart. She tells, among other things, about the delirious breaths of which she was a victim. An additional step in accepting the disease from which his cousin and uncle also suffer.
