To Purchase my Book:
"I would like to thank myself for the miracle of my being here today."
These are the words Dawn spoke before members of the FDA Psychopharmacologic Drug Advisory Committee hearing in 2006, before she described her prescription drug related experience - an alarming ordeal that began five years earlier...
With a successful and coveted career in the music touring industry, a blossoming new relationship, and her beloved dog Simon by her side, Dawn sets off for a sunny vacation in Florida between tours. But when she is prescribed an anti-anxiety pill for a minor problem, her charmed life quickly spirals into mania, insomnia, religious preoccupations, impulsive actions, grandiose behaviors, suicidal ideation, and psychosis. The world altering events of September 11 further propel a delusional Dawn into a full-blown paranoid, psychotic war - and she is brutally taken into custody, involuntarily committed to a mental crisis institution, and pharmaceutically drugged even more.
In riveting detail, Dawn takes the reader on a wild and terrifying ride of insanity. As the drugs are flushed from her system, she begins to regain control over her life and flourish. Despite all challenges that present, Dawn shares her harrowing story to shed light on the dark epidemic of pharmaceutical drug-generated violence, suicide, homicide, and terror in the name of mental health.
A mental health psychopharmacology memoir spanning over two decades of mental health treatment, involuntary commitments, police and medical reports, psychosis, diagnosis, madness, tragedies, testimonies, political activism and unyielding will-to-live all told in harrowing detail and bolstered by full color photo images.
Dawn Jeronowitz was born in 1970 and raised in New Jersey. She graduated University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a Bachelor of Creative Arts degree in Theatre, then embarked on a decades long backstage career in live event production and the concert touring industry. She traveled all across the United States and around the world, over fifty countries, while specializing in wardrobe, dressing rooms and catering for legendary rockstars. When not touring, she nurtures her passion for animals, food and drug safety, and politics.
