Remember This When You're Sad: A book for mad, sad and glad days (*from someone who's right there) [9781911600732]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Maggy Van Eijk knows where the best place to cry in public is: the top deck of a bus, right at the front. She also knows that eating super salty liquorice or swimming in an icy cold pond are things that make you feel alive but aren't bad for you.

Turning 27, Maggy had the worst mental health experience of her life so far.

She ended a three-year relationship. She was almost fired (twice). She drank too much and went to A&E over twelve times. She saw three different therapists and had three different diagnoses.

She went to two burn units for self-inflicted wounds and was escorted in an ambulance to a mental health crisis team. It was quite the year.

But she didn't let that year stop her.

Maggy took to pen and paper and started writing lists which helped her navigate through her mental health issues.

Lists to reminded her when she's anxious, alone, or when the world won't stop spinning that everything will be okay whether it's starfishing her heart out first thing in the morning or just simply phoning a friend.

Remember This When You're Sad is a brave, beautifully written and important book that lays bare the true reality of mental illness in the hope it can help others through whatever turmoil they're experiencing and come out the other side.

'This book made me feel less alone in a single page ... reassuring, warm and hilarious' - Megan Crabbe, @bodyposipanda
