Beca Mark wished she could have found this book when hopelessly struggling with depression and anxiety after having her first child. She takes you on a heartfelt journey and shares how healing only came when combining a daily Prozac prescription with a commitment to be her best self. By sharing faith-based, personal details about her life, she hopes to soften the cultural stigma surrounding mental illness, shedding a more positive light on these issues. With this audiobook, Beca Mark invites you to join a community of healing that celebrates all the good that psychotropic medication does for individuals dealing with mental illness.
You do not have to take Prozac, or fluoxetine, to be part of the community of healing. She welcomes you if you would like to join with her in eliminating the stigma of mental illness and psychotropic medication. Psychotropic medications, including Prozac, help millions of people in their journey to overcome mental illness. Put the PRO in PROZAC and commit to being open to doing anything positive to achieve your best self.

This book had much positivity to it insofar as the use of SSRI's for Depression and Anxiety. As a proponent of such medications, the writer's "Pro's" list was much appreciated and I intend to share this with someone I know who would benefit.
However, I found two things incredibly distracting throughout listening to this book and will share here:
1. The author is narrating her own book. While this is normally not a problem, this is obviously a rather young woman and her voice does not distill the same confidence one would experience had she a more mature voice. Although her writing is acceptable (although certainly not that of a professional writer), her youth is also betrayed by the level of her writing expertise.
2. I was only able to complete listening up until the 4th track of the 2nd CD. This was because the writing become rather "preachy" in regards to her Christian beliefs and this, along with the distraction of her lack of life experience, was more than I was willing to listen to. Although I regard myself as deeply Spiritual and have specific and hard-learned beliefs myself, I was not willing to be preached to towards the end.
That being said, the information regarding the good things about taking Prozac and other SSRI's was both welcome and encouraging for all who suffer the pain of Depression and Anxiety.
