Description A Pillar of Impotence deals with many issues in mental health. Fundamentally it is a story of recovery, the damage done by misdiagnosis, and finding a simple, medication based solution after 10 years. A book crosses the spectrum of mood disorder and a falsely diagnosed Personality Disorder. It deals with inpatient care, suicide, day services, psychotherapy, and eventual abandonment by Statutory Services. But it is put into the context of the wider world and as such is a record of the whole of the 1990s through the eyes of one sufferer. Various diagnoses were given at various times including depression, chronic endogenous depression, psychotic depression, narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality, and non specified mood disorder. About the Author Mark Edgar was born in Surrey in 1969. Educated as a chorister at Kings College Cambridge and a music scholar at Lancing College, he returned to Cambridge in 1988 as a choral exhibitioner at Selwyn College where he read history. It was whilst at Cambridge, aged 20, that mental illness first struck. Despite the illness he managed to graduate with a 2.1 in 1991. Following many years of illness and living on benefits he managed to return to Cambridge for a third time in 1999 to undertake a Post Graduate Certificate in Education and was awarded Qualified Teacher Status in August 2000. Unable to find a teaching job he worked as a part time Learning Support Assistant at South Kent College on a specialist course aimed at getting people with long term mental health difficulties back into education. Following on from occasional work for Mind since 1995, in 2002 he almost fell into working in mental health full time, initially with Kent Social Services and then Rethink. A second stint with Social Services followed in 2005 before a move to the University of Hertfordshire in September 2007 as their very first Mental Wellbeing Advisor. Mark started writing in 1997. He won the Rethink Pringles award for art and poetry in 2002 with his poem The Archbishop’s Palace. Work on A Pillar of Impotence began in 2002 and was completed in 2005. He also contributed a chapter to Voicing Psychotic Experience, a Reconsideration of Recovery and Diversity which was published in 2009. Although he rarely sings now he retains an interest in music. He has a passion for American Football having played in Cambridge and coached in Kent, and enjoys watching cricket and rugby. His other great passion in life is cooking foods from all round the world.
