Reminds me of the movie "Girl Interrupted", a patient's view of being institutionalized with mental illness. But From Socks to Insanity is from the perspective of an older lady. Having had many friends and family who suffered from depression and were hospitalized with it, and some who cut themselves, it was very easy to identify with the author. The description of the patients inside the institution is very close to how it really is. I really enjoyed this short memoir.

This is more of a journal then a story, a quick and educational read. Really worthwhile to better understand the worst end of the depression spectrum, if one has no first-hand experience. It is apparently very bad, worse then I had thought.

Well written

Some funny moments but found it quite sad at times, the jumping between the past and present situations was a little confusing. On the whole though the book got across what the author was trying to achieve.

For all the "insanity" Patsy Scott described, it made sense! How brave to put herself "out there". I so respect her for sharing her story and am glad she has those who love her to have helped her pull through. A quick read, yet intense.

A quick read about a woman who ends up in a mental institution after a few suicide attempts. She also is a cutter. What surprised me the most was the way the staff treated her. Whether it was her perception or they really were that callus, I'm not sure.

The patients point of view. I suggest this for those working in the mental health field. The patient does not always see what we see.
