Travelling Through My Mind is an absorbing and interesting account of one man's battle with paranoid schizophrenia.
This memoir focuses on the everyday struggles a human being encounters while constantly hearing voices telling him or her what they should and shouldn't be doing.

Chronic alcoholism and drug-taking (either of which would cause someone without this man's mental issues to struggle to survive) severely hamper his chances at a normal life.
But he is fortunate in that he meets Samantha. She is his saviour - but even then, he is the one who realises this and hangs on to her for dear life!
Before meeting her, he is living a life that is one full of partying. One life-long ‘trip' taking drugs and drinking huge amounts of alcohol with his friends...
