Waterstones Says

In this powerful and frank account of what it is to live with depression, actor Denise Welch discusses her battle with this ‘unwelcome visitor’. Sharing her own journey, from self-destruction to self-acceptance, Welch’s life-affirming humour and honesty is a well of solace for anyone whose life has been affected by depression.

'Though we have come a long way this crippling, debilitating, often terminal illness is still shockingly misunderstood. This is my story that you have asked me to tell. Those who suffer from depression will understand and those who don't will hopefully learn how to.'

This is the book that Denise Welch wished for as she found herself exhausted and defeated after yet another visit from The Unwelcome Visitor - the name she gives to the episodes of clinical depression she has suffered from over the past 30 years.

For so many understanding their mental health is a leap into the unknown, and they are left grappling with the physical and emotional fallout without any guidance or someone to tell them 'you're not alone and you can live a happy and successful life alongside your illness'. Within these pages Denise reveals her ongoing journey from breakdowns to breakthroughs and through self-destruction to self-acceptance.

Typically candid, Denise brings her trademark humour and honesty to a conversation that we urgently need to have, and shows readers it is brave and courageous to be open and vulnerable, and you too can take back control.

“Worth a read”

I love Denise so much! This book was so touching and sobering, however slow at times. Either way it’s worth a read to open your eyes and mind. Much love x
