Approx. every 5th Dane is affected by a mental illness. Yet it is still associated with taboo and shame not to be able to endure life.
In this book, Line Rosenberg Schmidt tells her personal story of living a life with anxiety and depression. It is a courageous and vulnerable insight into the painful state one is put in as a mentally ill person.
Despite the heavy topic, it is also a book full of hope and faith in a good future. About getting to know oneself anew and accepting life on the terms it provides. About fragility and strength. It describes the experience of being admitted to a psychiatric hospital, all the thoughts that run through your head when you are ill, and how the author has helped herself go on. That way, it can give others in the same situation someone to compare with.
The book also contains useful and practical instructions for both the mentally ill, but just as important for the relatives. The book is thus aimed at a wide audience, for whom it will be beneficial to know how it can feel to be affected by depression and anxiety. Throughout the book, a sharp critique is also made of the treatment you get with an "invisible" disease, in many places, in the system.
