agorafabulousAgorafabulous!: Dispatches from My Bedroom

Compelling memoir (and I don’t usually care to read them) about her “mental illness” but that phrase doesn’t quite express the reality of her terrifying experience with agoraphobia and panic attacks. Superb writing; hard to imagine being so open and bold about such a difficult internal conflict with her own brain chemistry and funny, poignant, and hopeful lesson. Anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts and other issues, please seek help. I am so glad she did and lived to tell the tale and dare to write about it.
