Review: Who Am I? How my daughter taught me to let go and live again by Megan Cyrulewski

The Blurb
Megan Cyrulewski is an ordinary person who has faced extraordinary challenges and now wants to inspire people and show them that hope gives them the power to survive anything. Who Am I? is about her journey into post-partum depression, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, visits to the psych ward, divorce, domestic violence, law school, and her courageous struggle to survive with her sanity intact-and how a beautiful little girl emerged from all this chaos.

My Review
Every once in a while I have to shake things up in my reading life and throw in a non-fiction book. I chose this one because it seemed like something different and interesting to read. I was correct. This book chronicles the abusive relationship Megan fell into with her husband and how it lead to the gift of her daughter and the heartache and stress that followed afterwards.

I learned quite a bit about the law, postpartum depression, and a couple of psychological conditions. I applaud Ms. Cyrulewski’s direct telling of her story and the strength it took to share it with the world.

I give this book four out of five chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon
