This is the story of a woman falling for her Ideal Man, only to discover that he is actually the man of her nightmares; the man who triggered her descent into The Dark Place. But then, it is more than that: it is a step-by-step guide as to how a young woman suffered a nervous breakdown the magnitude of which would have felled an ox. Now, if you wish, you can follow this 'guide' in order that you can yourself experience the depths of utter despair and depression. Either that or use this book as it was intended - as an instruction manual; a means of spotting the danger signs. Whatever, the second part of How to Have A Nervous Breakdown ('How To Get Through It') is designed to highlight the best path to inner-peace, self-confidence and ultimately - one hopes - a joyful, stress-free existence. But then, are things ever that simple...?
