Overview

Recounting in painful detail her 30 year journey through anxiety and clinical depression Sammie describes her rollercoaster life, which culminates in her ability now in her forties to manage her condition so that she is happier than she has ever been.

Having been bullied at school after coming out, through a series of failed relationships and an inability to hold down office jobs, she describes her suicide attempts with painful candour. Eventually, she finds solace in the company of dogs, which leads to a fulfilling life in America with a successful job and a community of wonderful friends.

And in an inspired twist on the oft-told tale of depression, her father Richard responds with how he and his wife supported Sammie, helping her both emotionally and practically to finally defeat this insidious disease.

A highly personal and ultimately uplifting memoir that should be read by anyone affected by or coming to terms with depression.
