Maggy Van Eijk knows where the best place to cry in public is: the top deck of a bus, right at the front. She also knows that eating super salty liquorice or swimming in an icy cold pond are things that make you feel alive but aren’t bad for you. Turning 27, Maggy had the worst mental health experience of her life so far.

She ended a three-year relationship, was almost fired (twice), went to A&E over twelve times, saw three different therapists and had three different diagnoses. But she didn’t let that year stop her. Taking pen to paper, Maggy started writing lists.

Lists to remind her when she’s anxious or when the world won’t stop spinning, that everything will be okay, whether it’s starfishing her heart out in bed first thing in the morning, or just simply phoning a friend. In her brave and important book, with a brand new chapter, Maggy lays bare the true reality of mental illness in the hope it can help others come out the other side too.
