A Mother’s Struggle with Bipolar Disorder
In this powerful memoir, Glenna Gill tells every woman and every man what she did and who she became when she was lost. She beautifully illustrates how easy it is to lose one’s way and how hard it is to find it again.
The author tells her story, the story of how her life fell apart when her husband announced he was leaving her.
She describes, with brutal honesty, everything she went through during a decade of depression and addiction.
In When I Was Lost, Glenna Gill shares her most intimate thoughts,
how she felt during her depression,
how she ignored every red flag,
how she justified her decisions,
how easily she got addicted,
how she saw herself,
how she was aware of her own dishonesty not only with herself but also with others,
how she burned every bridge as she got in deeper,
how her actions affected her children,
and, finally, how she realized where she was headed if she didn’t change her ways.
The author takes the reader through it all and shows the impact of every decision, every choice, on herself and on her loved ones and the kind of strength and determination it takes to get out of a hole that deep.
