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.
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.
