Mental illness touches four out of five families and many suffer from shame and blame that needs to be eradicated in favor of understanding. Hussey’s book can aid in that battle to accept those needing our support and compassion. The book also encourages and directs those needing professional help.
The author willingly shares her own journey and that of her family. Her humor creates an inspiring view of how to deal with difficult situations.
Some chapter titles (or sub-titles) are “Half the world is nutty—the rest are squirrels”; From Band-Aid Soup to Nuts; Don’t Be Happy…Worry; Help! My Brain Has Fallen and It Can’t Get up; Getting my God Fix; and other delightful headings. Each chapter holds true to the title premises.
An easy to read, honest and insightful book that deserves wide audiences who will find the information helpful and also offers needed understanding for survivors of mental illness.
