Changing Lightbulbs: A journey through anxiety and depression Paperback – 2 October 2017
Enhance your purchase
In Changing Lightbulbs Sue Tredget has written a heart-warming, inspiring, and deeply personal account of her journey through anxiety and depression, from darkness to light. With humour, wit and candour, and by telling us not ‘how-to’ but ‘how-I-did’, Sue provides insight into these very common mental health conditions. Changing Lightbulbs shows that we are never alone and breaks through the silence and shame in which stigma flourishes. The honesty of Sue’s powerful and uplifting story shines through in every part of the narrative; this is a book filled with hope that should help anyone going through a tough time to reach out rather than suffer in silence, and encourage us all to treat anyone suffering from depression or anxiety with kindness, respect, acceptance and understanding.
'Changing Lightbulbs, an engaging tale of Sue Tredget's journey to the brink of hell and back, has tremendous value for anyone who, though on the surface seems to be living a life others would envy, underneath feels like a fraud because of a gaping sense of emptiness that no one knows about. Sue's story is especially instructive in that it emphasises how important spirituality and a sense of purpose are in making a complete recovery from depression. We are reminded that nothing less than a total acceptance of who you are, warts and all, will allow you to live an authentic and fulfilled life. Highly recommended, especially since there aren't too many books out there that speak to professional people who mask their depression.' Dr Sophie Henshaw, Clinical Psychologist
'At turns heartbreaking and heartwarming, this honest account of one 'ordinary' woman's descent into depression - and its inherent feelings of guilt and shame - shows the Black Dog can bite anyone at any time. But this is also a story of hope, one that reveals there is a way back from the darkest depths, and that by holding on, reaching out for help and support, and never giving up, you can rediscover the joy of living.' Julie Hosking, Editor, West Weekend magazine
'What a remarkable book this is ... a heartfelt, no-holds-barred look at depression and anxiety that deserves to be read ... a story that really needs to be out in the world.' Amanda J Spedding, award-winning author
