This is the story of a woman in search of herself. Coming from a troubled family the traumas of childhood keep her stumbling through her adult life leading her to take one wrong turn after the other. After the onset of major depression she comes close to ending her own life.  Only now she realizes the haunting memories of her childhood have left deep marks on her and she must stop blaming herself. Reluctantly she seeks medical help.

At this pivotal point she meets a psychologist willing to guide her through the jungles of medical bureaucracy. With her help she manages to leave her old life behind for a chance to a new meaningful start over.

The book is based on a true story. All names and locations have been changed.

The story is an account of how childhood abuse shapes individual behaviour and behaviour patterns and how a series of traumatic events may eventually lead to mental disorders like depression and burn out syndrom. Unfortunatley, modern medicine seems all too willing to just offer medical prescriptions as a quick cure accepting all potential side effects on the patient where it would probably be more in his interest to first investigate the underlying causes of mental disorder. That, of course, would take more time and effort, a commodity that seems to be on the decline.

Nevertheless, the book ends with a positive message: it is a long road to recovery from depression and burn out but it is possible.
