Author Rebecca Ann Lombardoabout this book: This book is my memoir that details my struggles with mental illness since the age of 19. It began as a blog and became a book, so it doesn't fit into a traditional book mold. If you keep that in mind, you will enjoy it. It's not a how to or a textbook. This book is my real and raw emotions poured into the pages. In 2013, I attempted suicide. I had lost control over my life and I felt like a burden to everyone in my life. I just wanted the pain to stop. After being committed by the state to a horrible place, I started writing again. Once I made my story public, I received amazing feedback from all over the world. That is how it became a book. Even though some of the stories I tell are heart-breaking, I do attempt to end each chapter on a positive note. My book is a cautionary tale. This was my journey, not yours so you may think you would never make the decisions I made. Just remember I was in a lot of pain at the time those decisions were made.
