Publisher's Summary

A harrowing, remarkable poetry memoir about one girl's struggle with anxiety disorder.

This is a true story of growing up, breaking down, and coming to grips with a psychological disorder. 

When Samantha Schutz first left home for college, she was excited by the possibilities - freedom from parents, freedom from a boyfriend who was reckless with her affections, freedom from the person she was supposed to be. At first, she revelled in the independence...but as pressures increased, she began to suffer anxiety attacks that would leave her mentally shaken and physically incapacitated. Thus began a hard road of discovery and coping, powerfully rendered in this poetry memoir.

Crazy how relatable..

As a person going through college and struggling with anxiety, this book was all too relatable. I see myself sending this book to my friends and family to show them what anxiety and depression looks like and feels like, so they can start to understand what I go through and how to feels to have a panic attack in a common room, how therapy is helping, how I’m so scared to become dependent on my meds. I just thank you. This is a book I will look back on and reread when I forget that I’m not alone.

Couldn’t get into it

Gave the book 10 minutes. Could not get past the whining tone of the author and the repetitive nature of the writing. I don’t think I was the target audience for this book.
