 From childhood, Shelley Hussey endured strange symptoms. She eventually wrote this book as part how-to, part self-help, and part laughter for dealing with mental illness.

 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.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
