Unbroken: Learning to Live Beyond Diagnosis - Inspirational Series (Paperback)Alexis Quinn (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Alexis Quinn has always known she was different. Academically and athletically gifted, she soared through her years in education, but failed to socialise adequately with her peers. Somehow, social norms just passed her by. But her difference had always been her strength, until the birth of her child, and the death of her brother, Josh; then her difference became her downfall.
Unable to deal with the reality of what happened with Josh, Alexis was detained under the mental health act against her will. She found herself struggling for years, with diagnosis after diagnosis landing on her shoulders. Told repeatedly by doctors that she was dangerous, Alexis tried to become the person the system wanted her to be: someone normal. But it seemed that normal was always just out of reach.
As time went by, she realised that the care she thought was going to help her, might just be the very thing that would destroy her.
