Schapelle continued: ‘I would see visions, I would hallucinate and I wasn’t able to read. Reading really was my saviour before my illness because I would just block everything out and just read.

‘The only way my body could handle it was to hallucinate.’

Schapelle continued: 'I would see visions, I would hallucinate and I wasn't able to read. Reading really was my saviour before my illness because I would just block everything out. The only way my body could handle it was to hallucinate. I am not fully recovered from it'

Schapelle continued: ‘I would see visions, I would hallucinate and I wasn’t able to read. Reading really was my saviour before my illness because I would just block everything out. The only way my body could handle it was to hallucinate. I am not fully recovered from it’

She added: ‘I am not fully recovered from it. He (my dad) used to come to visit me a lot. I didn’t think that he would die and I didn’t understand that would be the last time that I would see him.

‘We had been appealing and appealing and then the final appeal came back denied so it was those things that I couldn’t get my head around. So mid 2008 I started losing my mind… hallucinating, I couldn’t eat.’ 

Schapelle served nine years in Bali’s Kerobokan Prison for marijuana smuggling. She was released in February 2014.
