Publisher's Summary

‘In the waiting room, I see a lot of people who I could tell had real, serious Problems. They deserve to be here. I don’t. I’m a fraud. A lazy wreck seeking an excuse for her incompetence. I’m useless.’ (Abby, 24)

Having conducted over 100 hours of interviews with 60 British women aged 16-25, Nancy Tucker - the author of The Time In Between, an ‘astonishingly good’ (Sunday Times) memoir of a life consumed by eating disorders – explores what it’s like to suffer from serious mental illness as a young woman. 

With raw honesty, sensitivity and humour, That Was When People Started to Worry examines real experiences of anxiety, self-harm, borderline personality disorder, OCD, binge eating disorder, PTSD and dissociative identity disorder. Giving a voice to those like Abby who can’t speak out themselves, Tucker presents a unique window into the day-to-day trials of living with an unwell mind.

Excellent

Excellently delivered - great narrator. A very interesting, a must read lifting the veil, misconceptions, myths and shame associated with women with mental health issues. Sometimes funny, sad but honest. Well done

This means you

Everyone should listen to this book, whether you have a mental illness yourself or not or whether you know someone with a mental illness or not. I tried to read it in print, but audio gave it life.

you're not alone

A must read for anyone who is struggling with mental health and think they are the only one. A great read for loved ones who struggle to understand the sometimes very unloveable behaviour we present.
