It’s official! For Mental Health Awareness Month, I renamed, expanded, and republished my book. It is now available on Amazon and through my websites.
It is the collected transcripts of the podcast to date, with a Foreword, Introduction and some editing. A hardcover will be available soon. An audio book will be coming along. Yes, an audio book of the transcripts of a podcast. 🙂
I just wanted to have everything collected somewhere. I run into a lot of questions and posts online. “That’s episode 2. That’s episode 25. Hell, that’s episode 1. Read the damn book.”
I’d like my $2, but the eBook will be available free for the last five days of the month. It is some kind of special that they run on Amazon. Really, I am trying to find a way to make it available for free here on the website. It may not be the best business decision, but that’s not really the point. The point is the same as the website, the podcast, and this blog: to spread awareness and help others who may be struggling or help those with loved ones understand them better.
I’ll be hard at work on the audio version of the book. That is going to take at least a month I think. The other book will take about a month after that. But, then, I’ll be getting back fully into this website.
Be kind to yourself.

I just read a bit of your book. I too used to plan fantasy’s in my head about how I would kill myself. Get a knife and go up my loft and do it. However I’m on medication now and although I still think about it I know I’m a good writer and an Aunty and even though I’m claiming welfare there’s still a lot to live for.
I invite you to read the book. You don’t have to live that way. I did as well, for decades, running through the fantasies. There’s hope. I’m 52. It is not until the last year that I really began living. It was a long journey to get here but I’m happy and I feel safe.
The fantasies still pop into my head from time to time. They just yesterday actually. 🙂 But they quickly get wiped away by my reality and today. I still have a long way to go as well.
