Published by Trafford
From my mind, someone diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Being diagnosed at the age of twenty-seven, and to comprehend the past. This is my personal memories of incidents that may have never really happened. For I am diagnosed as a high-functioning person with a mental illness and an above-average IQ. Although I was diagnosed at the age of twenty-seven, my hallucinations started to occur around the age of six.

I have been experiencing the effects of stigmata lately, so I started to write this novel the best way I know. Being both true and fiction—for the truth, you’ll have to find it on your own, but the fiction part is what I see in visions, memories, and dreams. It holds a hidden meaning for only the wise to decipher.

"For the truth, you'll have to find it on your own."
Mental illness is still one of the least understood and most stigmatized conditions in the medical world. Under the guidance of his psychologist, Dr. K., Mattheson illuminates what it is like to be beleaguered with schizophrenia, opening a door to understanding its effects on the author via his protagonist, Enigma. The main character has experienced visions since he was six years old, however he wasn't diagnosed with schizophrenia until the age of twenty-seven years. The visions consisted of seeing archangels (predominantly Michael). The archangel Michael is Enigma's communication channel to God. The main character spends considerable effort throughout the book, however, discerning whether Michael is really an angel or a clandestine part of the CIA, since "God is the CIA and Washington DC is the church of God."
