Maggy Van Eijk knows where the best place to cry in public is: the top deck of a bus, right at the front. She also knows that eating super salty liquorice or swimming in an icy cold pond are things that make you feel alive but aren't bad for you. These are the things to remember when you're sad. Turning 27, Maggy had the worst mental health experience of her life so far. She ended a three-year relationship. She was almost fired (twice). She lost friends and made bad decisions. She drank too much and went to A&E over twelve times. She saw three different therapists and had three different diagnoses. She went to two burns units for self-inflicted wounds and was escorted in an ambulance to a mental health crisis team. It was quite the year. This book is about anxiety and depression, Maggy's panic attacks, teenage bulimia and disassociation. But it's also about being a young woman with the added pressure of having an untrustworthy mind. Remember This When You're Sad is a brave, beautifully written and important book that lays bare the true reality of mental illness in the hope it can help others through their turmoil.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Get lots of mental health books sent my way but this is a stand out. Raw, funny, useful and entirely unpretentious. Check it out. -- Matt Haig, bestselling author of Reasons to Stay Alive
Sad, raw, relatable and inspiring. Reads like a friend telling you "it's going to be okay. This is how bad it can get but this is how good it can get just after." -- LaurenEvie.co.uk
This book is hilarious, helpful, and like a nice hug all in one. I've never read a book that has been so much like talking to a friend. Ohbookitblogspot.co.uk -- Ohbookitblogspot.co.uk
If you're struggling at the moment and feeling disheartened by the other mental health books out there then I would 100% recommend this. If Maggy brought another book out in the future I'd be first in line to pick it up. -- Nourishmeblog.co.uk
