'Pill After Pill' is a collection of poetry written mostly during a 6 week stay in hospital after Jonathan was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. The poems journey through the events of Jonathan's psychosis, from first seeking medical help to running away from hospital and attempting to jump from Waterloo Bridge to finally being discharged by his psychiatrist. His poetry allows the reader a glimpse inside his fragile mind during this time as he details his innermost thoughts and feelings. In his verse he captures the transition from being possessed by the voice in his head to feeling numbed by the medication he is put on. Through all of this Jonathan is desperate to gain peace of mind that by the end he is resolved to accept he will never find.
