In reading this book, it was so easy to relate. Over the past 10 years of on and off really deep depression, the uncontrollable crying, feelings of being so dis-connected from everyone and everything. It was so nice to know that I was not totally crazy. Still trying to function with my family, a son with disabilities, a not so great marriage. This book helped me to see a light at the end of the tunnel. I, myself, always considered to be drug free, that it was OK to get help either from meds, therapy or both. I really felt connected reading this book. I recommend this a great read to anyone feeling in such despair and hopelessness that there is no way out, BUT THERE IS. Don't wait until it is too late.
