    Hello Therese, I'm a new member on Beyond Blue and I joined after recently reading your book.I've been dealing with anxiety disorder and depression for 14 yrs and things are beginning to look up a little now. Thank you for the great work you do and I'm looking forward to sharing experiences and being of any help that I could to anyone with similar disorders.

    Dear Therese, I feel like there's nothing I can say to you about your book "Beyond Blue" that hasn't already been said, but let me add to the comments anyway. I have an MA and like you I have researched my way all over the place about depression and BP 2 and motherhood and New Age responses to it etc etc etc. I tried to kill myself when I was 16 (all parents and grandparents were active alcoholics) and was found prematurely and rushed to hospital. Anyway, I managed to pull myself up out of a deep depression with a lot of therapy and self-help and compelling higher power and vision for my life etc. But when I had children I spiralled right back down, both with my first and again with my second. I am now on meds and in therapy but your book has been a Godsend to me. Thank you so much for your courage to speak out and sound stupid and weak and foolish and all those other things you and I tell ourselves about our story. I am so tremendously grateful that you put my feelings into words, that it was okay to love my kids while also feeling so unbelievably inadequate and like I was one step away from the climax in The Shining. You have helped me to feel better about accepting meds, and more importantly given me some amazing suggestions for how to look consciously at all areas of my life and make them more positive. I'm working through the reading list, just loving Prozac to Potatoes. This is all SO awesome! Please NEVER quit writing, NEVER quit being honest! You are helping sooooooo many people!!!!
