I have been reading this awe inspiring book written by Tracey Maxfield RN BSN CDP. It gives a real insight of the day to day struggles of her own clinical depression. I make no apologies for language here – she has gone through a living Hell, and all because of workplace bullying. Her strength and conviction to fight through each and every day, to beat the ideation of suicide while continuing to have a positive impact on the world of dementia is amazing. She is amazing. This book is a must read. I’m going to read it again. Well done Tracey. You are a true inspiration to many.
