    1. This was a really really great book for women who are struggling with anxiety and/or depression (OCD, bipolar, etc) who are finding that therapy may just not be enough and they could benefit by making the leap to taking medication. The only reason I could not give this book 5 stars was because it was out of date as far as the medications usually used, and I looked to see if there was a newer edition and there isn't. BUT still good info as far as describing the disorders, and how to work through [...]

    2. I was shocked when this woman who had never met me perfectly described the sleeping trouble of my depression. I had not realized how classic my depression was until I read this book. This discovery told me that I am not alone and that anti-depressants would probably work for me. They did work for me too. Thanks for the wonderfully informative book.
