Every step of the way people just kept dropping the ball when it came to her care. Besides worrying about further stigma she'd be faced with after the suicide attempt, she had to go through being cut off Klonopin cold turkey and experiencing a terrible prolonged withdrawal. Finally, though, Sue was able to turn a corner. Her recovery has been truly remarkable, with the help of her faith, becoming a grandma, and finally finding a doctor who was able to give her the right diagnosis and get her on the right treatment.Sue has had a very difficult journey, and she's captured it really effectively in this book. It has a loud and clear anti-stigma message, as well as a very hopeful message for recovery. This is a very powerful book and I highly recommend it." -Ashley Peterson, Author of Managing the Depression Puzzle, Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis and Psych Meds Made Simple.
