Review & Giveaway: Fall To Pieces by Mary Forsberg Weiland



Mary ended up in a mental institution after throwing her husbands clothes out and setting them on fire. She suffered from depression and would lay in bed for days. A lot of the time, she didn't even know why she was reacting a certain way. Addiction and depression seem to go hand in hand, so Mary was battling both.

It's an absorbing read that hits close to home for me. I too suffer from depression and it is a very difficult illness to live with. I know how brave Mary must be to pour out her life for the whole world to read. She's a strong woman and I hope that her book inspires others to get the help they need.

  15. Oh wow, your review sure drew me into this book bigtime! I think its a must read now!!

    I also suffer from depression, bad anxiety, and panic attacks, and have for many years. I don't wish this on my worst enemy!! It certainly is genetic, and back when my mom used to get them, there was nothing at all to take for it, and she had to just suffer through it all which really breaks my heart when I think about it, and how terrible she must have felt.
