I read, "Don't Call Me Crazy! Again," and it was excellent, the best book I have ever read. I became an immediate fan. It was so interesting I couldn't put the book down. I was waking up in the AM hours trying to read it; trying to read it at work. It was so good I gave it to my sister so she can read it, and she is hooked on it. -Pauline Rivers

About the Author
Swiyyah Nadirah Woodard was selected as a Bay News 9 Everyday Hero, which was seen by two million viewers, for publishing a book and teaching the community about her own battle with mental illness. She was hospitalized six times and misdiagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. Her first book, "Don't Call Me Crazy! I'm Just in Love," became required and suggested reading in Reading, Writing, Abnormal Psychology, and General Psychology classes at a four year Institution.
She was born in the housing projects of Saint Petersburg, FL. Her father left when she was three so she was raised in a single parent home. At the age of five she was molested by her eight year old brother. She later started school. She had slurred speech and didn't care to make friends so she was bullied by her peers. At the age of eight, she wanted to kill herself because a girl wanted to fight her. She looked in the medicine cabinet for medication. Thank God, she couldn't find any.
As a teenager she was physically abused by her step dad. The abuse was so severe, God blocked it from her memory. At the age of 20 the brother that molested her committed suicide, which was devastating to her and the entire family. Swiyyah has always viewed herself as normal. She never received any disciplinary problems in school, made good grades, and receive her BA degree in Psychology from the University of South Florida.
When the doctors misdiagnosed her with the most debilitating mental disorder known in mental health, paranoid schizophrenia, she denied it. She questioned their expertise. She refused to take medication. She was then hospitalized six times. Her family took a picture of her at her worst and that's when she knew she needed help. She has been taking medication now for ten years without a relapse.
Because of her experiences, she has grown closer to God and has learned a lot about life, much of which she reveals in her speeches. Swiyyah has done extensive research, shares her personal experiences, and provides the warning signs she exhibited as a child. She provides resources to help the community and teaches them how to live out their dreams regardless of their disability.
