Summary
Jeremy Oxley was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 22, at the height of his musical career. Terrified, he tried to hide his diagnosis from family and friends, who attributed his erratic behaviour to drug and alcohol abuse. Following harrowing experiences with the hopelessly inadequate mental health services of the day, Jeremy self-medicated with alcohol, gradually alienating friends and family until he became a hermit in a small Queensland town, shut off from any kind of life or support. Mary Griffiths was a nurse who had been widowed for 5 years with young twin boys. She had been a fan of The Sunnyboys. After being shocked and deeply saddened to discover how Jeremy was living, she and her sons tracked him down and tried to help him. At their first meeting, Mary was able to see through the facade of the illness and catch glimpses of the sensitive, beautiful and frightened man inside the hulking shell Jeremy had become. Her boys instantly loved him and he was instantly calm around them. On a mission to bring him back to life and health, Mary and the boys brought Jeremy to live with them. His response was amazing and slowly, together, they reclaimed his life and built a family. This moving and uplifting memoir is the unforgettable story of that remarkable journey from darkness to the light, and from the depths of despair to hope and love
