There are many books by expert clinicians describing what can go wrong with the mind and how to fix it. The books by laymen writing about their experience often don't ring true, claiming that the author went from being a complete mess to the happiest and most successful person on the planet. By reading their books, the same will happen to you, apparently.
I have great respect for the experts and don't for a minute begrudge anyone who has turned their life around, but feel I am saying something that I haven't seen in print before. My claims are much lower key than most, more personal and realistic.
This is a personal journey that I believe you might find useful.
