Publisher Description

One of our most popular actresses, Denise Welch got her television break in the BBC's Spender opposite Jimmy Nail and followed it by achieving success in ITVs worldwide hit drama Soldier Soldier. She really became a household name when she took on the role of Rovers Return landlady Natalie Barnes in Coronation Street. She tarred in the award-winning drama Waterloo Road and is a regular on the hugely popular Loose Women, where her warmth and honesty have won the nation's hearts.

But even as her career was taking off, Denise was hiding a secret – that she was suffering from a crippling post natal depression so severe that she was at times suicidal. As she concealed her heartbreak on the set of Coronation Street, she turned to alcohol and drugs to cope. She even had an affair that threatened her marriage.

Now she reveals for the first time the full details of her battle with depression and alcoholism, how she fought back and, helped by the love of her husband Tim Healy, turned her life around. Powerful and moving, Pulling Myself Together is ultimately an uplifting book that will appeal to her many fans old and new.

This was a very good read. Denise tells her story with no excuses no sob story. I couldn't put it down!

Enjoyable honest read.

Enjoyed this book a lot. A very honest, warts and all account of her life. I have to admit I have always thought of Denise as an annoying, big headed exhibitionist, but since reading this book I now think she is just honest, real and brave. Living with depression must be a daily nightmare and yet she soilders on. Lesson learned...never judge a book by its cover.
