    Book details

For years Gareth O'Callaghan, one of Ireland's most popular broadcasters, suffered severe depression. No one guessed that as soon as he was off air, he would retreat to his bed, sometimes suicidal thoughts, and barely able to function as a husband and father of three small children. In this candid and courageous account, he describes the nightmare he and his family lived through for so long. He looks back to his childhood where he believes his low self-esteem took root, and traces a pattern common to many. As soon as he was diagnosed, Gareth began a determined fight back to health. Now fully recovered and no longer on anti-depressants, he has emerged with a deep understanding of how depression takes hold - and how to loosen its grasp. Here he shares his insight, practical knowledge, and convictions in a mission to spread hope to all those affected by it.

Review Text

  • By LeaR on November 29, 2012

    The writer tells the story of his breakdown, the time leading up to it and how he managed his recovery. What is truly amazing about Gareth O'Callaghan's story is that he was a celebrated national broadcaster in Ireland on the radiowaves everyday. How he was able to push himself through that - the pressure of sounding cheerful to the nation every afternoon without fail - is testament to his strength of character, but a life lesson for us all on how somebody can suffer on their own for so long without anybody knowing. Such is the shame depression suffers can battle with when they feel they they have no justification for their misery and can't understand why they feel so bad. But it's this shame and unworthiness that prolongs the pain of depression long past the point the sufferer should have gotten help. Another recommended book is for sufferers or their families is Keys to the Cage. Five stars to both.
