Synopsis

"Opening with the narrative of her initial breakdown, then moving into journal entries from her mid-life relapse, Elizabeth includes educational pieces on post partum depression, family of origin issues and suicide. Using quotes from other strong women throughout and vignettes, like quilting pieces, she addresses stigma and shame, loss and grief and the quest for balance that is recovery. Elizabeth says the message of her story is, “I am getting through this and so can you.” She holds out her experience with mental illness as a hand of relatability and hope in the midst of someone’s silent suffering.
