Life After Darkness
By Cathy Weild (MBBS 1983)
About the book:
The remarkable and moving story of a doctor and mother of four who endured seven years of severe depression. Years of self-harm, attempted suicides and admissions to psychiatric units culminated in her resorting to brain surgery as a final attempt to escape her illness. The story of Cathy Wield covers the horrors of time spent in archaic institutions, the loss of any hope of recovery and certain death, to a full recovery following surgery. Today she had returned to her career and rediscovered the joys of life and her family. This story is one of hope from an often hidden and stigmatised disease.
