Ken Kasey

Unfortunately we do not know which type of diabetes Ken had. But I couldn’t help myself I had to feature the man who brought the world One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest.  Apparently, he came up with this well-known book while participating in a study of the effects of LSD. During his participation is when he spent time as an attendant in a psychiatric ward and was able to develop his characters. In 1990 Kasey went back to the University of Oregon to teach writing. Kasey was not diagnosed with diabetes until 1992 and from there on had a many health struggles. at His last and final piece of written work was a reflection of 9/11 in Rolling Stones Magazine.
