    Emma Forrest, a British journalist, was just 22 and living the fast life in New York City when she realized that her quirks had gone beyond eccentricity. In a cycle of loneliness, damaging relationships, and destructive behavior, she found herself in the chair of a slim, balding, and effortlessly optimistic psychiatrist--a man whose wisdom and humanity would wrench her from the dangerous tide after she tried to end her life.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Who wouldn't be completely and utterly devastated if Collin Farrell was madly in love with you for a year, wanted to have a child with you and even named her Pearl, expressed that he could not wait to be married to you and then just like that stop the love affair without explanation? But, that heartbreak is not what made Ms. Forrest almost take her life and cause her to cut her body with objects and her soul with an unknown to her and her loving family hatred of herself. She never blames her family and in facts loves them to pieces as they do her. That is what I found so admirable about her memoir. There was no blame. Her story helped show that deep dark depression can be a mind boggling mystery. For her to begin her climb out of the abyss it seemed to take strength, good fortune, money and medicine, good doctors and great parents, love and understanding, a wing and a prayer and the most important of them all a continued desire to get well at all costs.


    If you could take any character from Your Voice in My Head out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Ms. Forrest's parents. They seemed to be pleasantly eccentric, delight in life and believe the best in their daughter despite sometimes witnessing the worst a parent can imagine.
