I cannot wait to read this book! I have fought depression for years, and a diagnosis of cancer pushed me off the cliff to the darkest of places. Then the anxiety and panic attacks decided to join the party! My sister taught me to crochet at 12 but I had not picked up a hook in years. Unable to work, I began to crochet again. It filled a void, and made me find self-worth in the beautiful things I made. When people started to offer to pay me for my work, the light shone just a little brighter. I have a long way to go, my health is slowly returning and my psychiatrist is a great help, but nothing has brought me peace and an inner calm like picking up that hook and my favorite yarn. Thanking you for your courage to share your story!!!
