This book is the story of my life. Just a shy Scottish lass, I did well at school. At 21, I was diagnosed with myoclonic epilepsy, prescribed nitrazepam and had to give up teacher training. The next 40 years were marred by depression. After taking early retirement in 2012, my GP suggested I stop taking nitrazepam. This left me extremely ill and bedridden for two years. However, I am now free from epilepsy, depression and prescription drugs for the first time in my adult life. I am looking forward to the rest of my retirement. I hope others will be inspired never to give up. You just never know what might be round the corner.
