Through the Gates of Hell: Stories of Caffeine Psychosis


Through the Gates of Hell: Stories of Caffeine Psychosis by Ruth Whalen

A collection of 27 stories, the first fiction book about caffeine psychosis is written by a writer, medical professional and the world expert on caffeine psychosis. The book carries the reader from the Boston Tea Party through the widespread production and use of psychiatric drugs, including SSRI drugs, drugs that should not be used with caffeine. The book focuses on many issues, including caffeine-induced physical illness diagnosed as mental illness, elderly dementia, and ADHD. Showing how caffeine can bring its user to the depths of despair, the book reveals caffeine's horrific effects that many caffeine users, medical doctors and psychiatrists don't know about. Mike Dijital, photographer and urban explorer, designed the book cover, and small photos are in the book. The realistic material may disturb some readers. Due to subject matters and language, the book is suggested for readers over the age of 15.
