Book Review -- "Loud in the House of Myself"

"Loud in the House of Myself" by Stacy Pershall
Five out of Five Stars

This is a book that resonated with me on a visceral level. 

As a sufferer of depression and a past anorexic, reading Stacy Pershall's story was like reading bits of my own.  Her fight and her issues were so much worse than mine, yet she came out of it with humor and dignity -- and at several points in her life, dignity wasn't even showing its face.

I underlined and marked up this book on so many pages.  I don't know how well someone will like it if they don't understand bipolar, depression, or suicide attempts, but if you are looking for a voice that rises from rock bottom, this is it.
