About this title
The book is a memoir, inspirational book and self help book all in one. Laurie started her struggle with depression when she was thirty-five years old and the most difficult times lasted about twenty years. She wrote, "As time went on, I found out that depression was a callous illness that had no understanding that I had other plans for my life." During the course of her treatment she experienced many hospitalizations, medication trials, over four hundred electroconvulsive treatments and two neurological surgeries. She shares with the reader her struggle and personal thoughts on a variety of subjects.She ends her book by saying, "If I could have one wish today, it would be that all people could have access to the mental health care they need when they need it. I am very lucky to have received the help I did. It seemed that many people never stopped believing I could get healthy again. I hope that I can be one of those people for someone else."
